Saturn Awards: ‘Avengers,’ ‘Breaking Bad’ lead sci-fi-fantasy-horror pack: Variety

“Marvel’s The Avengers” and “Breaking Bad” collected the most statuettes as the Academy Of Science Fiction, Horror & Fantasy Films handed out its Saturn Awards Wednesday night in Burbank.

“Avengers” took home honors for top science fiction film; Joss Whedon as director; Clark Gregg as supporting actor; and for special effects — that kudo going to the team of Janek Sirrs, Jeff White, Guy Williams and Dan Sudick.

Clark Gregg have the night’s most impassioned acceptance: “I’m such a sci-Fi geek,” he confessed, remembering that when he first played Agent Colson in “Iron Man” “I was as geeking out to meet Robert Downey Jr. as to talk to Tony Stark.”

Congrats to Joss, Clark and the cast & crew of The Avengers. All of them deserve credit for creating a magnificent film.

Why aren't the geek Oscars televised? That's an awards show that I would actually watch.

It’s something that’s easy to take for granted, growing up in the United States as a white male, that my cinematic heroes look like me...It’s something that over the course of these ten years, having a certain amount of power over what type of movies are made and what type of actors we hire, I want everybody to have that feeling. We don’t take it for granted that people want to see themselves reflected in our heroes and our characters.
