Nominations for 2019’s 45th annual Saturn Awards were announced June 15. The Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy & Horror Writers will vote and winners will be announced and honored at an awards ceremony Sept. 13 in Hollywood.

For the first time, the academy is planning to televise its awards ceremony, according to Newsarama.

The academy’s website is apparently in flux between a .org and a .com, and nominees are posted there as a PDF but also reposted below. If you can think of a genre TV/movie category, it’s probably here:
