Enterprise was shut out last night at the 29th Annual Saturn Awards, despite having earned four nominations.

The Star Trek franchise took home only one award last night of its ten nominations: Best DVD Television Release for Star Trek: The Next Generation. That series' latest feature offering, Star Trek: Nemesis, lost Best Science Fiction Film to Minority Report and Best Supporting Actor for Tom Hardy (Shinzon) to The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers' Andy Serkis (Gollum).

Nemesis costume designer Bob Ringwood and makeup designer Michael Westmore were also nominated for awards, but an early news item at Sci-Fi Wire did not have the results of those competitions and the Saturn Awards web site had not been updated as of this posting.

Enterprise had earned nominations in television categories for Best Network Series, won by Alias; Best Actor for Scott Bakula, won by Angel's David Boreanaz; Best Supporting Actress for Jolene Blalock, won by Buffy the Vampire Slayer's Alyson Hannigan; and Best Supporting Actor for Connor Trinneer, won by Alias' Victor Garber.

The Director's Edition of Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan had received a nomination for Best Classic DVD Release but was beaten by E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial.

Director Steven Spielberg was present to pick up his awards for that film, as Best Director for Minority Report and for Best Single TV Program Presentation for the miniseries Steven Spielberg Presents: Taken.

More awards can be found at Sci-Fi Wire, though this is not a complete list.
