While stars of music were being honored at the Grammy Awards, Burbank, California, was the site of the Academy of Science Fiction’s 51st annual Saturn Awards.

Presenters and winners included Nicolas Cage, James Cameron, The Walking Dead‘s Norman Reedus and Danai Gurira, Star Trek: Picard‘s Patrick Stewart, Ghostbusters Ernie Hudson, Blue Beetle‘s Xolo Maridueña and What We Do in the ShadowsHarvey Guillén.

Also at the awards show, hosted for the second year in a row by actor/comedian Joel McHale, Christopher Nolan was presented with the Saturn’s Visionary Award by Oppenheimer co-star Emily Blunt, who won Best Supporting Actress for her role in the film.

Keanu Reeves was in attendance to receive the very first Lance Reddick Legacy Award, named in honor of his late John Wick co-star; William Shatner presented Seth MacFarlane with the prestigious Robert Forster Artist’s Award, and Jodie Foster was presented with The Life Career Award by her True Detective: Night Country writer-director Issa López.

If the guest list seems impressive, that’s nothing new, previous winner Bruce Campbell told ABC Audio. “You want to see famous people in one room? Go to the Saturn Awards,” he laughs.

The Evil Dead star explains, “Frank Marshall, okay? He’s a big producer … And you know, we got to be sort of friendly. And I saw him at the Saturn Awards. I’m like, ‘Hey, Frank, you know, wow. Great to see you here at the Saturn Awards.’ He goes, ‘Are you kidding me? The only time I’m going to get an award is here he goes. I’ve been nominated for ten Academy Awards. I’ll never get one of them. I’ve got three Saturns.'”
