The 51st Saturn Awards winners were announced this past weekend, recognizing the best in Science Fiction, Fantasy, and Horror, and The Walt Disney Company received 11 awards for its genre titles.
The awards are presented annually by the Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror, and James Cameron’s “Avatar: The Way of Water” led on the film side with four awards, including Best Science Fiction Film.
All winning titles are available to watch on Disney+.
Lucasfilm’s Dave Filoni, whose storytelling skill has helped bring “Ahsoka,” “The Mandalorian,” “Star Wars: The Clone Wars,” and other Star Wars series to life, was honored for his career achievements in animation and beyond with the George Pal Memorial Award at this year’s Saturn Awards, as well.
