Spartacus Nominated For 2013 Saturn Awards

The 2013 Saturn awards nominations were announced yesterday. Great news, Spartacus is up for three. I'm a little surprised that "War of the Damned" received 2 noms, as only 3 episodes have aired thus far. Perhaps the committee for the awards received advanced copies of episodes?

I'm ecstatic that Todd Lasance received a nod, congratulations, but I wish that Liam, Dustin, Dan, Manu, and Cynthia could have been included as well. I know, I know, not everyone can get a nomination, and bad me for casting a wee bit of negativity on this great news, but it's because they've all done stellar work this season and in previous seasons, that I feel a little something should be said.

On that note here are the nominations:
