I have looked everywhere to see if it will be televised tonight or any other night. Haven't seen a word yet. I guess Gerry didn't win as he's now on his way, if not already there, to Scotland.

I'm just grateful to see 300 getting SOME WELL-DESERVED recognition!

The awards show takes place tonight, at Universal City. I doubt it will be broadcast live, but who knows LOL. There's no reason to believe that wasn't able to videotape an acceptance speech if he was so inclined.

Here's a link directly to the Saturn Awards page.

Yea to 300 for winning, but Gerry should have soooo won best actor. In fact I will go as far as to say that the only person that maaaybe Gerry could lose to was Daniel Day Lewis, although to be honest 300 and There Will Be Blood are so vastly different that they really can't compare.

Oh and 300 should have def won for best costumes...or at least yummiest. :cunning:

I'm glad to see 300 won ! I know we all would have loved to see Gerry win as best actor, but we all know that it's always favourable towards the more recognized actors. Not that we wouldn't 'recognize' Gerry but it just seems to go that way. I'm happy that it won out over some other great high box-office hits. That has got to say something!!!

Gerry will get his due. I'm sure of that.

It is too bad that Gerry didnt win for Best Actor, but Johnny didnt win either so now I`m really bummed. However, Congrats to Zach and to 300 for Best Picture

and Congrats to Sweeney Todd for winning Best Costumes....you really deserved it! :yay:

Yay! 300 won best picture and Zach best director! :cheer2:

Too bad that Gerry didn't win best actor. Will Smith was good in I Am Legend, but Gerry was better in 300. And I'm not biased either. :funnyface:

I TOTALLY AGREE!!! But, sometimes it is not always the winners that have the biggest impact.

GERRY'S GOT IMPACT!!!! IN SPADES!!!! :funnyup:
