    Come on! I watch like all of these shows, but Fringe deserved more recognition. I mean is Revolution really the best network tv series? I could barely stand to watch half the season. And its a travesty that John Noble didn’t win best actor. Bryan Cranston is great, but John Noble is just fantastic. At least Anna Torv won best actress.

      I agree. I watched the whole season of Revolution and it is one of the worst shows I’ve ever seen. I am absolutely perplexed that it won Best Network Series. What bothers me even more is that I am seeing more and more Fringe fans on Twitter going on and on about how great Revolution is. They’re even starting to do hashtags, like we used to for Fringe, for this joke of a show. This makes me wonder how easily people will just “love” anything that J.J. Abrams attaches his name to. The worst part is that the showrunner & creator of Revolution has nothing to do with J.J. Abrams or the Fringe creators. It’s Eric Kripke, the guy who created the teen series Supernatural! Guess what? Revolution’s even dumber then Supernatural!
      I really thought Fringe would win at least 3 of the 6 categories it was nominated in. John totally deserved the best supporting actor. Hell, I even thought Josh would get best actor as Season 5 was the best acting work I’ve seen from him. I am thrilled that Anna won, she truly deserved to but I am disappointed that was the only win for Fringe. Especially at the Saturns…..we know the Emmy’s will snub Fringe one last time but I expected more from the Saturns.
      Did I mention how much Revolution sucks?? It’s Sc-Fi for dumb people!!! ๐Ÿ˜› Ugh!

        Agreed, Fringe should have won over Revolution; hell, anything should have won over Revolution! The show had a potentially promising concept that it failed to deliver on. Its biggest weakness was the failure to make any of the characters interesting, which led to substituting numerous mindless action scenes to cover up its failures. While the winners in other categories are appropriate or at least defensible, Revolution winning best anything undermines the credibility of the Saturn Awards. I’m amazed it was even nominated!

    Congrats to Anna!

    I hate that she never even got a nomination for an Emmy so I’ll take any kind of recognition. She should have won an Emmy for past seasons.

    Revolution winning anything is a joke.

      Thank you ML! I couldn’t agree more. Nice to see that the smart Fringies didn’t sell their souls to Revolution.

    I’m so happy she got this one too. Anna Torv as Olivia Dunham is an unequivocal success; extraordinarily played and very well deserved. I just love her in every scenario.

    John Noble. I just read his twit congratulating Anna; he’s such a gentleman!. But make no mistake…there’s no future in time travel and John WILL get his ef*ing Emmy… eventually? pretty please? … (it is unbelievable)

    Brilliant news about Anna’s award, a fantastic reward for a terrific actress.
    have to say though I Like everyone else am mystified by by the continuing lack of awards for John Noble.
    Don’t get me wrong really happy for Anna, but Johns portrayal of the many versions of Walter Bishop over so many years to me was just first class, and should have be recognised as such.
    Also don’t get me wrong, don’t really know anything about the actor who beat John, he must have been good and congratulations to him.
    But just disappointed for John, but then again I could be bias being a Fringe Fan
    Gee’s I miss this show.

    Wonderful news! Congratulations to Anna ( … now, how about an Emmy nomination? )!

    Well deserved, as she is one of the best action-heroine actresses around today!

    Looking forward to seeing her “appearance” reprising the “Heavenly Sword” game-character Nariko in an upcoming animated film version!

    Can’t wait to see what her next live-action role will be!

    … hmm…

    … say! Since J.J. Abrams may be doing a “Half-Life 2” movie anyway, in the near future…

    … how about Joshua Jackson as “Gordon Freeman”, and Anna ( dark-haired and tan-complected ) as Alyx Vance?

    Anna winning is as much as ร  surprise as revolution to be fair. She did next to nothing, felt like she was going through the motions ships Mr noble and jackson having to bring it home.

    Sometimes, Action speaks louder than words.
    The fact that Anna might have had little to do as compared to both John and Josh is probably the fault of the writers more than anything else.
    they seemed to focus more on the observers and Peter becoming one of them as well as Walter trying to piece together the plan that he and September had for the observers than anything else, thus leaving all the other characters with vey little at all to do.
    Still I absolutely loved the show, miss it too, but life goes on.
    At least I have the four season of the show (Blue Ray & DVD) to fall back on if I feel a bit of Fringe Nostalgia coming on.
    Hopefully complete the collection when Season five come out on Blue Ray in good old Australia in September.

    Many people say Anna โ€œcalled inโ€ season 5, I do not agree. She was great, the range of emotions that the writers gave her to play she did beautifully. Seeing her adult daughter for the first time, then her daughter dying, saving her husband from almost turning into an Observer, seeing Nina dead in the wheelchair, traveling back to the Altverse and the list goes on and on. IMO Olivia was the glue that held the rest together to get back to where they belonged.

    I think Anna very much deserved this award.

    As far as Revolution, the best show, well since I donโ€™t watch every show canโ€™t really answer that, but I do like the show and um, the power going out is not out of the realm of possibilities.

    I have watched some of Season 5 on DVD. I think Anna Torv was great in it. Prior to the show ending, I thought they had dialed her character back in The Final Season, and that, as such, she was not as enthused. But now, watching it, I think that while, yes, Season 5 was The Walter Season, she was still Olive and was excellent. The award was well-earned and well-deserved.

    Now…about the Emmys…

    For all those of you wondering….Anna didn’t even submit an episode for the Emmy’s this year. Which means that she can’t be nominated. She probably just gave up on the idea of getting a nomination for Season 5 since she didn’t get one for any of the other seasons. The way the whole Emmy nomination process works is pretty ridiculous. Also, a lot of you may be right and maybe Anna just chose not to submit an episode since this wasn’t really her season. Compared to all the other seasons, the writers gave her the least amount of work acting-range wise in the final season. Since they can only submit one episode for consideration that didn’t leave Anna with much. Except for maybe episode 12. It’s such a shame that the Emmy’s never recognised Fringe because it really showcased some extraordinary work over the years. As Red Balloon said hopefully John Noble gets to show his talent with many more roles coming his way and hopefully there’s an Emmy for both him and Anna waiting in the future. It’s just a shame that it won’t be for their work on Fringe.
