Hope they won't win, though they probably will as a parting gift for the series...

Agreed, however, I am 100% sure Galactica is going to win because they're overrated, and every critic loves it.

Since when are Dexter and The CLoser scifi???? Boggles the mind.

I predict BSG or DR WHO will win.

As long as we're asking questions, how exactly does Saturday Night Live qualify as science fiction? or is it more of the fantasy side?

Oh, and I have another questino! *raises hand*



Best supporting actor in Television Series
JAMES CALLIS (Battlestar Galactica) (Sci Fi Channel)

MICHAEL EMERSON (Lost) (ABC)

GREG GRUNBERG (Heroes) (NBC/Universal)

JOSH HOLLOWAY (Lost) (ABC)

MASI OKA (Heroes) (NBC/Universal)

JAMES REMAR (Dexter) (Showtime)

Best supporting actress in television series

GABRIELLE ANWAR (The Librarian: Return to King Solomon’s Mines) (TNT)

JENNIFER CARPENTER (Dexter) (Showtime)

ALI LARTER (Heroes) (NBC/Universal)

ALLISON MACK (Smallville) (CW)

ELIZABETH MITCHELL (Lost) (ABC)

HAYDEN PANETTIERE (Heroes) (NBC/Universal)


I can accept, somehow, the point about Greg Grunberg, but in what way are Masi Oka, Ali Larter and Hayden Panettiere supporting actors?....

As for SG1... well, they have a chance, this being the last year and al. Hopeful.

Heroes feels more like an ensemble cast show than a lead/supporting cast show like Stargate so maybe everyone is just listed as supporting?

I hope SG-1 somehow wins this award. I think the show deserves it on it's way out. Besides, this season has been amazing IMO.

I hope they win, to prove to some that ending SG-1 as a TV-series was a mistake and the potential was huge, eventhough it is an " old " series.

Problems:

Veronica Mars: not a Sci-fi or horror show

Doctor Who: NOT a Sci-fi series, it is at best a fantasy show, Sci-fi is based on science hints its name.

The Closer: Is a Crime Drama

24: how the hell is 24 a sci-fi series, maybe it just barely horror if you want to say dooms day is included in horror, and thats if you want to call it a dooms day series

I predict BSG or DR WHO will win.The initial post said the category was "Best Syndicated/Cable TV Series" not "Best Science Fiction Series."

I don't think SG-1 will take the award. It's probably up between BSG and Dexter, which has been getting as much critical acclaim and BSG has. I'm a little surprised SG-1 even got a nod seeing how vast the pool of great cable shows is these days.

The Saturn Awards aren't "scifi" awards.

In the film category, they have seperate awards for "science fiction", "fantasy", "horror", and "action/adventure/thriller".

In TV, they have one award schmushing all those genres together.

Regarding SG-1's nomination, I'd say it has the lowest quality--and least chance of winning--of the all the nominees. (IMO, of course)

I'd say "BSG" and "Dexter" are the most likely to win.

Ig SG1 wins, they will win because this is their last year.

Hey, for once, award politics are on SG1's side! ;)

Dude. Doctor Who is soooo Sci-Fi. It's not anymore fantasy then Star Trek, or Stargate or Farscape could be considered fantasy.

Not the meantion doctor who has been around for decades. I don't know where the idea of Doctor Who not being Sci-Fi came from, but it is so far from being correct that you'll need (at least) 12inch thick lenses to fix that vision.

Thanks. I've always equated Saturn awards with scifi and fantasty. As to SG1, I agree. I say BSG is much more likely to win. The Dexter show definitely doesn't appeal to me so I haven't seen it
