 Armageddon (film) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Armageddon is a 1998 disaster/science fiction film about a group of blue-collar deep-core drillers who are sent by NASA to deflect an asteroid on a collision course with Earth.
Additionally, the film was lambasted for being too noisy, which contradicts the fact that there is no noise in outer space, although this is a factor often disregarded in Hollywood.
The movie was nominated in seven categories for the 1998 Golden Raspberry Awards, but only one was awarded: the Worst Actor award was given to Bruce Willis for his Armageddon performance, along with appearances in Mercury Rising and The Siege.

 : RevolutionSF - Whither the Saturns? : Feature
Right now, every professional, amateur, and wannabe organization is releasing their awards for the best or worst films of 2001, and the most perplexing of these are the Saturn Awards, given by the Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy & Horror Films.
Part of the rationale for the Saturns was that science fiction, fantasy, and horror films are snubbed each year, even though almost all of the top twenty grossing films of all time are somehow related to the genre.
Until someone offers a comparable award for actual accomplishments in improving the science fiction film, the Saturns will keep stinking up the genre, and all of the talk about making intelligent, thought-provoking science fiction, fantasy, and horror films will be just that.
