On Thursday, the Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy & Horror Films held its 37th annual Saturn Awards in Burbank, California, and Breaking Bad was honored to take home the prize for Best Syndicated/Cable Series.
Breaking Bad — which also won the category last year along with Aaron Paul, who won Best Supporting Actor on Television — faced heavy competition for this year’s award: TNT’s The Closer and Leverage, Showtime’s Dexter, SyFy’s Eureka, Starz’ Spartacus: Blood and Sand and HBO’s True Blood were also nominated.
Also a big winner at last night’s ceremony was AMC’s drama The Walking Dead, which walked home with the trophy for Best Television Presentation. In addition, the series’ Writer/Director/Executive Producer Frank Darabont received the prestigious George Pal Memorial Award for his twenty-five year body of genre work.
