Richard Matheson was supposed to get the Lifetime Achievement Award but due to his death, he will receive it posthumously.
I was seated at the table with Richard Matheson's son R.C. at the Saturn Awards last night. It was a very emotional evening, especially when he had to go up an accept his father's award and then several other times when winners Quentin Tarantino, William Friedkin, etc. mentioned his work.
Also of note was a special theatrical award given to Jon & Al Kaplan for their work on SILENCE! THE MUSICAL.
