The Saturn Awards have been held annually since 1973, celebrating a wide range of genre fiction film, television, and home media titles. This year, the 46th annual awards include films and TV series released between July 2019 and November 2020.

"For All Mankind" has been nominated for Best Fantasy Television Series, competing against "The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance," "Locke & Key," "The Magicians," "Outlander," "The Twilight Zone," and "The Witcher."

"Servant" is nominated for Best Horror Television Series, and is up against "Creepshow," "Evil," "Fear the Walking Dead," "Lovecraft Country," "The Walking Dead," and "What We Do in the Shadows."

"Amazing Stories" has been nominated for Best Television Presentation (Under 10 Episodes), contending with "Dracula," "The Haunting of Bly Manor," "His Dark Materials, "The Mandalorian," and "Perry Mason."

There have been 286 nominations in over 40 categories and genres this year. An exact date for the awards this year has not yet been set, but it will likely follow in the next few months.

Yesterday, Apple TV+'s animated movie "Wolfwalkers" was nominated for ten Annie Awards and last month Jason Sudeikis won a Golden Globe Award for his performance in the hit Apple TV+ show "Ted Lasso."

For All Mankind was very good. I found Amazing Stories too be OK at best; it never really hooked me into watching it unlike FAM, Ted Lasso or The Morning Show.

Haven't watched For All Mankind nor Amazing Stories, but I have begrudgingly watched all episodes of Servant. I find it to be a huge disappointment with its cast of characters who all are suffering from severe mental illnesses and / or character defects.

This is my first M. Night Shyamalan work, and I am not impressed. He just creates a series of gross, disgusting scenes and tries to weave them into a story.

Definitely 4 thumbs down.

I'm still surprised they get away with a sexist title like "For All Mankind". Revisionist history is a thing now. Get with the program, "For All Gender Neutral Kind".
"For All PEOPLEkind" is the most inclusive and gender neutral title. Honestly, we should cancel Apple for such offensive name. Somebody please tweet it to Tim Apple to make it right.

For All Mankind is awesome, but Servent is just nonsense that constantly implies it's going somewhere but never does. I watched all of Amazing Stories and don't remember a thing about it, other than not being impressed. I may not be the audience for that though - is it aimed at young kids?

I really love For All Mankind though. Definitely proves that we're living in the Darkest Timeline doesn't it?

At least they ratified the Equal Rights Amendment in that alternate universe.

For All Mankind is the best show on Apple TV+. Yeah, there are a few preachy moments, but very few and they are minor.

I really enjoy how they weave in real historical moments with fictional, especially when they add a little twist to the real to update it with their fiction. Feels like a wink and a nod.

Servant is one my favorite shows but this season is really dragging. For those who haven’t started season 2, it may be a better binge-watch then planning your Friday around it.

I can see how it earned a nomination though. Great production quality and the show’s cooking aspect is unique.

I actually enjoyed Amazing Stories, even though I agree that the quality of the individual episodes varies. I guess for me, it's mainly that my free time is limited. When I do get a chunk of time when I feel like sitting down and relaxing in front of the TV for a bit, I like having a show that's not part of serial episodes. I can commit to just watching one episode and know it's the full story in and of itself.

Servant is not one on my watch list, but my wife watches. I just wish someone would tape Lauren Ambrose (the Servant wife) to a chair, as her seemingly perpetual hysteria and egregious overacting are making me consider that going for a long walk while this show is on is probably the better option. It's probably the better option in any event, but we have this thing called winter where I live.

I liked the build up in the first season of Servant but the payoff wasn't really there. Season 2 is much worse. There is no finale that can explain all of their constant running around only in that same house all day arguing over the stupid baby. It's like 30 minutes per episode is not enough so nothing ever really happens but 1 hour episodes would feel like an eternity. The show has nowhere left to go unless they completely change the dynamic before this season ends.

Don't go down that rabbit hole!

Check out the origin of the word "woman". It literally means wife man.

It's a pity there's so much tedious talking going on in S2. I nearly fell asleep watching the second episode. More Moon action, please.
Quoting myself here, but... Bejeezus, I'm watching the latest episode now and there is so much dreary dialogue and emotional family scenes, it's tempting to turn the damned thing off!

I loved Amazing Stories when it was on TV many years ago. The Apple TV series felt quite similar. I think our culture has changed quite a bit since then though. Maybe these stories don’t appeal to the younger generation, but I liked the series and hope they release a few more!

the tone of that show is completely uneven. the humor comes off as sarcasm from the actors and not the characters themselves.
