The ceremony marked considerable changes for the Saturn Awards; although the awards had rewarded solely works from the previous year until 2016, when the eligibility was changed to works released from March of the previous year to February of the current year, the eligibility was, for this ceremony, extended to March of the previous year to early July of the current one. It is also the first Saturn Award ceremony not to be held in Burbank, California since 2008, and the second one to air live after the 1978 ceremony (as the show was made available for livestream on different platforms).[1] It also marked major changes for the categories: most notably, series were split into two different sets of categories, television and "streaming", for web television series released on streaming/video on demand services such as Netflix or Hulu (films released on those platforms are also eligible for the acting categories). The number of Best Series awards for streaming (previously limited to Best New Media Television Series and Best New Media Superhero Series) extended; although they had previously shared acting categories with traditional television, streaming series also now get their own. However, certain categories for television are not present for streaming, or have been fused into one, resulting in seven categories compared to twelve for traditional television. In addition, the Breakout Director award, rewarding first-time film directors, was created, and the award for Best Television Presentation, which existed since 1995, was discontinued.[1]

Avengers: Endgame led the nominations for film with fourteen (sharing Black Panther's record as the third/fourth most nominated film in the awards' history from the previous year), followed by Aladdin with nine and Us with eight.[4][5] Game of Thrones led the nominations for television with nine, followed by Outlander and The Walking Dead with five each.[4][5] For streaming television, The Haunting of Hill House led with six, followed by Lost in Space and Star Trek: Discovery with five each.[4][5]

For film, Avengers: Endgame won the most awards with six, including Best Comic-to-Film Motion Picture and Best Actor (Robert Downey Jr.), followed by A Quiet Place and Spider-Man: Far From Home with two each.[2][3] For television, Game of Thrones led wins with four, followed by The Walking Dead with three, while Star Trek: Discovery became the streaming series with the most wins with three, followed by Stranger Things with two.[2][3]
