The 45th Annual Saturn Awards happened on Friday night and saw various winners including Game of Thrones, which earned four awards. The final season of the beloved HBO series may have been divisive, but that's clearly not stopping it from taking home some prizes. The show scored the awards for 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).
The only property to beat out Game of Thrones in the number of Saturn Award wins was Avengers: Endgame, which took home six awards. Endgame's wins included Best Comic-to-Motion Picture Release, Best Actor in a Film (Robert Downey Jr.), Best Film Production Design (Charles Wood), Best Film Editing (Jeffrey Ford and Matthew Schmidt), Best Film Make-up, and Best Film Special/Visual Effects (Dan DeLeeuw). The Russo Brothers film wasn't the lone Marvel film to win either; Tom Holland and Zendaya both won for their roles in Spider-Man: Far From Home while Josh Brolin won for Best Supporting Actor in a Film for Avengers: Infinity War.
In addition to winning at the Saturn Awards, Game of Thrones also has a record-breaking 32 Emmy nominations this year.
