Although no longer in production, the sci-fi series about a number of people stranded in a mysterious island has won three nods at the annual event to honor works in certain genres.
The Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy & Horror Films has announced the winners of 36th Annual
Saturn Awards. In the television category, "Lost" went above "Fringe" in taking home the most prizes. The ABC series which ended its 6 years run in May is awarded with three while "Fringe" gets two.
The first award for "Lost" is dedicated to the series' star Josh Holloway. The depicter of Sawyer wins Best Actor on Television while Anna Torv of "Fringe" wins the female counterpart. The other two awards are for Best DVD Television Release, particularly for the fifth season's set, and for the coveted Best Television Series.
In terms of chance, "Lost" actually misses a lot because the TV series received eight nominations while "Fringe" only got three. The same case happens to "True Blood" which took in five nominations but left with none.
The awards event took place Thursday, June 24 in Burbank, California. The organization also recognizes excellence in movie, home entertainment and theater production.
