Saturn Awards: ‘Spider-Verse,’ ‘Star Wars Resistance’ Win Animation Honors

Winners for the 45th annual Saturn Awards, honoring motion picture, television, home entertainment and live stage productions, were announced Friday at an exciting ceremony hosted by Aisha Tyler at the historic Avalon Theater in Hollywood and streamed across eight online platforms.

Sony Pictures Animation’s Spider-Man: Into the Spider Verse took the Best Animated Film award, beating out Universal-Illumination’s The Grinch, DreamWorks Animation’s How to Train Your Dragon 3: The Hidden World, Pixar’s The Incredibles 2, Disney’s Ralph Breaks the Internet and Pixar’s Toy Story 4 — which won the Best Fantasy Film category.

The Mouse also snagged Best Animated Series on Television with Disney Channel’s Lucasfilm saga Star Wars Resistance. Also contending were adult-targeted toons Archer (FXX), Family Guy (Fox) and The Simpsons (Fox) as well as Disney Channel’s DuckTales reboot.

Leading the way across all categories with six Saturn Award wins was Marvel/Walt Disney Studios’ Avengers: Endgame which took home the awards for Best Comic-to-Motion Picture Release, Best Actor in A Film (Robert Downey Jr.), Best Film Production Design, Best Film editing, Best Film Make-Up and Best Film Special/Visual Effects. Leading the way for television and streaming, HBO’s Game of Thrones took home four awards: Best Fantasy Television Series, Best Actress on a Television Series (Emilia Clarke), Best Supporting Actor on a Television Series (Peter Dinklage), and Best Performance by a Younger Actor on a Television Series (Maisie Williams).
