Saturn Awards Will Honor Keanu Reeves with First-Ever Lance Reddick Legacy Award

TV


For over 50 years the Saturn Awards have celebrated movies and TV that nerds like us care about. The awards honor the kind of stories that the Motion Picture or Television Academies often overlook. This year’s awards will be a bit different, because it’s dedicated to the memory of the former Saturn Awards host,  the late Lance Reddick. To honor his memory, the Saturn Awards will present the first-ever Lance Reddick Legacy Award. And it will go to his longtime co-star and friend from the John Wick franchise, Keanu Reeves. 

Actor Titus Welliver will present the award to Reeves at the upcoming 51st Annual Saturn Awards. This year’s event features Joel McHale as its host. Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy, and Horror President Robert Holguin released this statement:

This award symbolizes and celebrates not only a performer’s talent, but their character; someone who’s a true goodwill ambassador in the industry. From Science Fiction (The Matrix franchise), Fantasy (Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure/Constantine) & Horror ( Francis Ford Coppola’s Dracula/The Devil’s Advocate), Keanu has done it all — not to mention Speed and Point Break. Keanu is not just a Hollywood icon but also a shining example of humility and gratitude. Throughout his incredible career, he has never forgotten the support of his fans and the filmmakers who’ve supported him all these years. We’re thrilled to celebrate Lance’s memory with a dear friend and a genre icon.

Keanu Reeves is one of the most humble and kind actors in Hollywood, according to everyone who has ever worked with him. Given his iconic status in so many beloved genre franchises, we’re glad the first-ever award honoring Lance Reddick is going to him. For those wanting to see Reeves get the Lance Reddick Legacy Award,  ElectricNOW will live stream the event on February 4, at 4 PM Pacific time.
