On Tuesday night, Jeri Ryan (Seven of Nine) warped past the competition to score the Saturn Award for Best Supporting Actress in a television series.
Ryan beat out Alyson Hannigan (Buffy the Vampire Slayer), Katherine Heigl (Roswell), Juliet Landau (Angel), Amanda Tapping (Stargate: SG-1) and Michelle Trachtenberg ( Buffy the Vampire Slayer) to secure the award, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
This was the third year running in which Ryan was nominated for a Saturn Award, although she had never won prior to this. In 1999, Ryan received a Golden Satellite Award for her performance on the series.
Kate Mulgrew (Captain Janeway) was nominated for Best Television Actress, but lost out to Jessica Alba, star of Dark Angel. This was Mulgrew's fourth successive nomination, having won the award in 1998. Voyager was nominated for Best Network Television Series, but that award went to UPN's latest acquisition, Buffy The Vampire Slayer.
'X-Men,' the genre film which starred Patrick Stewart (Captain Picard) swept the feature film categories, winning six awards. Although Stewart lost to Willem Dafoe ('Shadow Of The Vampire') in the Best Supporting Actor category, 'X-Men' won Best Science Fiction Film, Best Director, Best Actor, Best Supporting Actress, Best Writing and Best Costume Design.
James Horner, who scored 'Star Trek II: The Wrath Of Khan' and 'Star Trek III: The Search For Spock,' won the award for Best Feature Music for 'Dr Seuss' How The Grinch Stole Christmas.' Horner beat out long-time Trek associate Jerry Goldsmith, nominated for 'Hollow Man,' to win the award. Scott E. Anderson, who worked on the special effects for 'Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country,' was part of the team that won for the film 'Hollow Man.'
Trek alums Jeff Dawn and Edouard Henriques (Make-up for 'Star Trek V: The Final Frontier') were nominated for 'The Cell' and 'The 6th Day' respectively, but did not win. Habib Zargarpour, part of the special effects team on 'Star Trek: Generations,' was nominated for 'The Perfect Storm,' but came away empty-handed.
