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:

Congratulations to Johnny for his nominations!

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?

For that matter, why is Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol nominated? Is it science fiction? I kind of peg it is as an action thriller genre.

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.

Anyway, I am hoping "The Adventures of Tintin" wins!

:)

No!

In some circles E.T. is considered fantasy too. (Although sometimes it's even called science fiction...)

Tolkien/Dungeons & Dragons are classified as part of a sub genre of fantasy called "High Fantasy" http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/High_fantasy

Tintin might be categorized in the sub genre of "Low Fantasy". http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Low_fantasy
