Here Are the Winners of the 2024 Saturn Awards

Avatar: The Way of Water and Star Trek are this year's big winners.


Published on February 5, 2024


The winners of this year’s Saturn Awards, presented by the Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror Films, were announced last night in Los Angeles. Various Star Trek shows won an absolute pile of awards, including Patrick Stewart’s win for Best Actor in a Television Series, Jeri Ryan and Jonathan Frakes’ wins for their Best Supporting roles, Paul Wesley for Best Guest Star, and a special Lifetime Achievement Award for the cast of Star Trek: The Next Generation.

Keanu Reeves didn’t just win Best Actor in a Film for the latest John Wick entry; he also won the inaugural Lance Reddick Legacy Award. In his acceptance speech, Reeves said, “For over 25 years, Lance made an imprint and raised the bar in every work of art and genre he was in, not only with his performance but with the man he was. He was kind, generous, creative, insightful, authentic. He had a special grace, strength, along with a vulnerability that drew us in, supported us, inspired us.”
