Saturn Awards take place in Burbank

Burbank may not be hosting ComicCon, but it was still sci-fi and horror geek heaven Thursday night at the 37th annual Saturn Awards. The Castaway, set high atop the hills of Burbank, was a mix of cocktail attire and cosplay as Ghostbusters and Yoda mingled with honorees.

Host Jeffrey Ross pointed out that he hadn’t “seen this many geeks in one room since last year. … I want to thank you all for taking time out of your busy schedules of smoking pot and playing ‘World of Warcraft’ to be here tonight.”

Mel Brooks nabbed a Saturn for his work on the “Young Frankenstein” stage show in L.A. and took the opportunity to express some fatherly pride over his writer-son Max Brooks’ recent successes: “I’m so happy I won’t have to give him a dollar for centuries!”

Meanwhile, as honorees were swept into the press room, scream queen Heather Langenkamp took a moment to relish in her win for the doc “Never Sleep Again.”

“How ’bout a Rafael Nadal pose?!” she joked, and kissed her Saturn trophy for the photogs.
