Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them Up For 2017 Saturn Awards


Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is up for 7 Saturn Awards, including Best Fantasy Film!

The Saturn Awards are here! The annual awards recognize the best in science fiction, fantasy and horror films and TV shows. This year, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is repping the Harry Potter universe with seven nominations.

Fantastic Beasts is nominated for Best Fantasy Film, Supporting Actor (Dan Fogler), Production Design, Make-Up, Music, Special Effects and Costume Design.

Believe it or not, the Harry Potter films only have taken home a Saturn Award twice in history. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2 won Best Fantasy Film in 2011, and Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone took home Best Costume in 2001.

Fantastic Beasts has a good chance to pick up a few awards this year, especially for costume design. Designer Colleen Atwood recently picked up an Academy Award for her work on Fantastic Beasts.
