Good Omens leads Amazon’s Saturn Awards 2019 nominations

The 2019 Saturn Awards nominations have been announced. Amazon landed six nominations, with Good Omens leading the way. Here’s a look at the noms.

The Emmy 2019 nominations will be here later today, but right now it’s all about the Saturn Awards. The 2019 Saturn Awards nominations were announced on July 15, with Amazon getting a mention not once but six times. Newest Amazon Original, Good Omens, leads the way for the Amazon nominations.

The Saturn Awards covers Sci-Fi, Fantasy, Action, and Horror TV shows. The three shows that have been nominated fit into the different categories and one of those shows hasn’t even released its first season to be produced as an Amazon Original! Yes, I’m looking at you, The Expanse.

Good Omens leads the way with three out of the six nominations. One of those is for the show itself. It lands a nomination in the Best Streaming Science Fiction, Action & Fantasy Television Series. The competition is stiff, going up against two other Amazon Originals, The Expanse and Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan.

Other streaming shows the Amazon shows are up against are Netflix’s Black Mirror, Russian Doll, and Lost in Space and CBS All Access’ Star Trek: Discovery (which you can watch through Amazon Channels).

John Krasinski and David Tennant have been nominated for Best Actor in a Streaming Presentation for Jack Ryan and Good Omens respectively. They go up against Penn Badgley for You, Jon Bernthal for The Punisher, Charlie Cox for Daredevil, Zac Efron for Extremely Wicked, Shocking Evil and Vile, and Henry Thomas for The Haunting of Hill House.

Meanwhile, Michael Sheen landed the sixth nomination at the 2019 Saturn Awards for Best Supporting Actor in a Streaming Presentation. I don’t quite agree that he was a supporting actor — both he and David Tennant were the co-leads — but putting the two separately does give both a chance for wins and they both deserve an award win.

Sheen goes up against The Haunting of Hill House’s Michiel Huisman and Timothy Hutton, Star Trek: Discovery’s Wilson Cruz, Doug Jones, and Ethan Peck, and Lost in Space’s Maxwell Jenkins. It’s some stiff competition but I can’t see why Sheen shouldn’t win for that perfect performance as Aziraphale.

The Saturn Awards 2019 winners will be announced on Sept. 13. We’ll be keeping an eye out for all things Amazon, but check out the full list of nominations for movies and TV shows at the official Saturn Awards website.
