Thank God, no Ludovic Bource!

"The Saturn Award is the official honor presented by the Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy & Horror Films."

I don't think The Artist fits into that category :)

Whoops! You're right!

Now, I knew there had to be a plausible reason why Bource isn't on that list...

:lol:

And obviously War Horse is nominated as a Horror film. ;)

You're right! What's WH doing on that list? :blink:

Is that considered a fantasy or what?

Why IS War Horse nominated?

Or Tintin...actually. It's neither horror, fantasy nor sci-fi...

Well, it could be argued that Tintin is fantasy, but WH?

Fantasy? in what way?

Fantasy usually implies the more Tolkien/ Dungeons and dragons type story.

Nope, that's historical fantasy and/or sword and sorcery, I'd say.

Fantasy is anything considered fantastic or supernatural! It's a wide field.
