The success of Jordan Peele’s Nope continues, as it’s among the major nominees for the 2022 Saturn Awards.

According to Deadline, The Batman leads all nominees with 12, including Best Superhero Film and Best Actress in a Film for Zoe Kravitz. The Catwoman actress is up against Zendaya in Spider-Man: No Way Home and Keke Palmer in Nope.

Peele’s alien invasion movie also received nods for Best Science Fiction Film, Actor in a Film for Daniel Kaluuya and Peele for writing and directing,

It’s no surprise that Marvel Studios dominated, with recognition in both Film and Television. Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, Spider-Man: No Way Home and Thor: Love and Thunder are all up for Best Superhero Film, while Loki, WandaVision, Hawkeye and Ms. Marvel received noms across the streaming categories. Though the series wasn’t nominated, Anthony Mackie is up for Best Actor in a Streaming Series for The Falcon and the Winter Soldier.

It’s a DC Comics family affair as Viola Davis is nominated for Supporting Actress in a Film for her role as Amanda Waller in The Suicide Squad, while Danielle Brooks is up for Supporting Actress in a Streaming Series for playing her daughter Adebayo in the HBO Max spinoff Peacemaker. The always outstanding Idris Elba also received a nod for Best Actor in a Film for his work as a member of Task Force X.

In addition to Nope’s nominations, I’m excited to see Jonathan Majors (Loki) and LeVar Burton (Leverage: Redemption) in the Guest Performance category. I also need to shout out the amazing Supporting Actress in a Streaming Series nominees, Aleyse Shannon in Leverage: Redemption and Moses Ingram, who had to fight evil on and off screen, for Obi-Wan Kenobi.

Side note: If you haven’t seen Obi-Wan Kenobi yet, definitely binge it right now. You do not need to see Star Wars first, there are plenty of explainers along the way. And if you like action/heist series, Leverage: Redemption on Amazon FreeVee is a lot of fun. Plus, it’s family-friendly.

The Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy & Horror Films will announce the winners for its 50th-anniversary ceremony on Oct. 25 during a livestream on ElectricNOW.
