    The Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror Films will bestow its top honorary achievement awards on renowned director Frank Oz, The Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman, and actor James Remar on July 26th, when the Academy presents the 38th annual Saturn Awards.
    Oz, Remar, Kirkman, and producers of "The Simpsons" (this year's Milestone Award winner) are expected to attend this year’s Saturn Awards ceremony at the Castaway Event Center in Burbank, California.
    Genre filmmaking continues to dominate movies, TV and entertainment, and for four decades the Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror film has been the only organization to honor the talented artists whose vision of wonder know no bounds,” said Academy President Robert Holguin. “They stimulate our imaginations and showcase the best in contemporary filmmaking and television, and we’re proud to honor these remarkable people – and to announce the winners of this year’s Saturn Awards – at this year’s awards show.

    From the Press Release:
    The enormous talents of FRANK OZ have left an indelible mark on science-fiction and fantasy films – and for his extraordinary contributions, Oz will receive the Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror Film’s LIFE CAREER AWARD. As an actor and performer, he has brought to life such iconic characters as Yoda in the Star Wars Saga and Miss Piggy from The Muppets. As a filmmaker, the legendary Jim Henson asked him to co-direct the watershed 1982 epic The Dark Crystal; Oz also directed the 1987 screen version of Little Shop of Horrors; such edgy comedy classics as Dirty Rotten Scoundrels and Death at a Funeral; and the big-screen adaptation of The Indian in the Cupboard.
