Jeff Davis is going to have to build a big trophy case into his new Los Angeles home if he keeps up his current pace of award winning.
Less than a week after grabbing a Teen Choice Award, the Teen Wolf Creator and Executive Producer picked up another win last night during the Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy & Horror Films 38th annual Saturn Awards.
Davis told Entertainment Weekly that the Saturn holds a special importance for him.
- “This is my third year — I love this show,” Teen Wolf creator Jeff Davis told EW after winning the award for Best Youth-Oriented Television Series. “I love coming to a show that really celebrates genre material. Genre TV, movies, and novels are what got me through difficult years of my life, and what inspired me.”
The win places Teen Wolf alongside the most critically acclaimed shows on television.
- Best Network Television Series
- Fringe (Fox)
- Best Syndicated/Cable Television Series
- Breaking Bad (AMC)
- Best Television Presentation (10 episodes or less)
- The Walking Dead (AMC)
- Best Youth-Oriented Television Series
- Teen Wolf (MTV)
Davis and Producer/Director Russell Mulcahy were on hand to accept the awards.
The Saturn Award is an award presented annually by the Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy & Horror Films to honor the top works mainly in science fiction, fantasy, and horror in film, television, and home video.
The Saturn Awards were devised by Dr. Donald A. Reed in 1972, who felt that films within those genres were never given the appreciation they deserved at that time.
The physical award is a representation of the planet Saturn, surrounded with a ring of film. The award was initially and is still sometimes loosely referred to as a Golden Scroll.
