Lost wins four Saturn awards

Matthew FoxThe Saturn awards ceremony was held last night, and Lost dominated the television categories with four wins. The drama won the award for Best Network Series and nearly swept the acting categories. Evangeline Lilly lost the Best Actress award to Ghost Whisperer's Jennifer Love Hewitt, last year's winner. Most of the first-time nominees, such as Pushing Daisies and Journeyman, were shut out. Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles was the only exception; Summer Glau tied for Best Supporting Actress.

Comedian Jeffrey Ross hosted the event. Hopefully this is just the beginning of a successful awards season for Lost. A complete list of winners in the television categories follows after the jump.

Best Network Television Series: Lost

Best Syndicated/Cable Television Series: Dexter

Best Presentation on Television: Family Guy: Blue Harvest

Best Actor: Matthew Fox, Lost

Best Actress: Jennifer Love Hewitt, Ghost Whisperer

Best Supporting Actor: Michael Emerson, Lost

Best Supporting Actress: Summer Glau, Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles; Elizabeth Mitchell, Lost

Best Television Series Release on DVD: Heroes

Best Retro Television Series Release on DVD: Twin Peaks

Are you happy with this year's winners? Who else should have been recognized?

What I'm wondering is what happened to the award for Best International Series? The nominees were brilliant (Dr Who, Torchwood, Meadowlands/Cape Wrath, Jekyll, Life on Mars, Robin Hood), but I can't find mention of the winner anywhere, not even the Saturn Awards website.

It looks like there was no award given. Maybe they couldn't get enough votes for a quorum? Weird.

Also:

"The Saturn Award is an award presented annually by the Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy & Horror Films to honor the top works in science fiction, fantasy, and horror in film, television, and home video."

Guessing Dexter was eligible as part of the 'horror' genre...not the best fit, but it's an amazing show anyway.

Battlestar Galactica has turned into a daytime soap this season...Lost definitely deserves the award this time.

Isn't this is the SATURN awards??!?? Shouldn't the best series in cable for a Saturn award be 'Battlestar Galactica'? (I know Dexter is awesome, but it is NOT SciFi)

As long as Michael Emerson wins, I'm fine.

The only drop of bitterness: I hope to see him in the "Best actor" category next time. Michael Emerson deserves every award he gets and then some. (Yeah, I'm looking at you, Emmy folks.)

Me too!! He is a great actor, and has already deserved the award. The writers of Lost must be on drugs, and they are way smarter than others in the film industry. Seeing one of the most successful actors like Michael Emerson on Lost proves how professionally the writers and all the other crew members do their jobs. Michael rules!! lol.. his eyes.. the way he looks at someone.. I'm speechless!! lol.
