This year’s Saturn Awards show is not only dedicated to the memory of the Saturn Awards’ dear friend, acclaimed actor and former Saturn Awards host, Lance Reddick, but will also be presenting the debut of the Lance Reddick Legacy Award to his longtime co-star and friend from the blockbuster John Wick franchise, Keanu Reeves.
The Award will be presented to Reeves by Titus Welliver (“Bosch”/“Bosch: Legacy”) at the upcoming 51st Annual Saturn Awards, hosted by Joel McHale on February 4, 2024 at 4PM PST that will be streamed live on ElectricNOW. The announcement was made today by The Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy, and Horror Films.
Academy President Robert Holguin and Saturn producers Bradley and Kevin Marcus comment, “This award symbolizes and celebrates not only a performer’s talent, but their character; someone who’s a true goodwill ambassador in the industry. From Science Fiction (“The Matrix Trilogy”), Fantasy (“Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure”/”Constantine”) & Horror (Francis Ford Coppola’s “Dracula”/”The Devil’s Advocate”), Keanu has done it all — not to mention ”Speed” and ”Point Break.” Keanu is not just a Hollywood icon but also a shining example of humility and gratitude. Throughout his incredible career, he has never forgotten the support of his fans and the filmmakers who’ve supported him all these years. We’re thrilled to celebrate Lance’s memory with a dear friend and a genre icon.”
Other prestigious awards presented at the upcoming ceremony will be announced shortly.
