Why did we pick this as the lead into the post? Well, for one, we’re big sci-fi geeks here at Mingle Media TV and two we loved AMC’s “The Walking Dead” series! Congratulations to Frank Darabont for receiving 6 nominations! We got to speak with Michael Rooker, who was one of the characters (living) that you loved to hate this week at the Italia Film Festival at Grauman’s Theatre. Here’s a little about what he had to say:
So if you’re not familiar with The Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy & Horror Films – well, you’re in for a treat as this is their 37th Annual Saturn Awards nomination announcement and leading the charge is Christopher Nolan’s mind-bending sci-fi thriller “Inception” with 9 nominations. It will be interesting to see what happens tomorrow at the Oscar’s as Inception is also nominated for Best Picture.
More nominee’s are: Overture/Relativity Media’s “Let Me In” and Disney’s “Tron: Legacy” downloaded 7 nominations apiece, Clint Eastwood’s thought-provoking “Hereafter” received 6, while “Alice in Wonderland,” “Black Swan,” “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1,” “Never Let Me Go” and “Shutter Island” earned 5 nominations each .
