June 6, 2000
"Stargate SG-1" pulled down the award for Best Syndicated Television Series at the Twenty-Sixth Annual Saturn Awards, held on Tuesday. The show beat out fellow nominees "Peter Benchley's Amazon," "Farscape," "GvsE," "The Outer Limits" and "Star Trek: Deep Space 9."
Executive producers Jonathan Glassner and Robert C. Cooper accepted the award at the Century City, California event. Glassner praised the hard work of everyone involved in producing the show, saying, "We would write scripts that we thought were not producable, and they would pull it off on a television budget."
Richard Dean Anderson lost the award for Best Actor on Television to David Boreanaz ("Angel"). Amanda Tapping was beaten out for Best Supporting Actress on Television by Justina Vail ("Seven Days").
The 28-year-old Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror Films, which presents the Saturn Awards, was founded "to honor and promote the best in related genre."
The awards ceremony was hosted by Bruce Campbell ("Jack of All Trades") and broadcast at SciFi.com Tuesday evening. Other winners included "The Matrix" (Best Science Fiction Film), "Being John Malkovich" (Best Fantasy Film), Tim Allen (Best Actor, "Galaxy Quest") and Christina Ricci (Best Actress, "Sleepy Hollow").
