"Season two of the Saturn Award nominated Hannibal, which is based on characters from the novel Red Dragon, debuts tonight (NBC 10 pm EST). The brain child of the delightfully quirky and morbid Bryan Fuller (Pushing Daisies, Dead Like Me), Hannibal is nominated in the Best Network TV Series and Best Actor (Mads Mikkelsen) categories. A guest turn on Hannibal as Bella Crawford (starring opposite real-life husband Laurence Fishburne) earns Gina Torres (Firefly) her first Saturn nomination.
The Saturn Awards are presented by the Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy & Horror Films, and they reward the best in both film and television in those genres. A quick scan down the list of nominees for the 40th annual awards shows how varied the field is. Blockbusters like Star Trek Into Darkness and The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug are on the list, but so is the Siri-seduction film Her and the historical drama The Book Thief."
