The Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy, and Horror Films to bestow the writer, director, producer, actor and singer, Seth MacFarlane with the illustrious Robert Forster Artist’s Award at the upcoming 51st Annual Saturn Awards hosted by Joel McHale, set to take place on February 4, 2024 streaming live on the premium OTT app and FAST channel from Electric Entertainment, ElectricNOW.

MacFarlane’s talents encompass every aspect of the entertainment industry. He is behind some of today’s most popular content in television, music, and film and five Emmys, four of which make him the tied record-holder for the most voice-over Emmy wins of all time, along with five Grammy nominations and an Academy Award nomination.

Through MacFarlane’s work both in front of and behind the camera in film and television (“Ted,” “Family Guy,” “The Orville”) he and his production company, Fuzzy Door, have created a portfolio of award-winning properties connecting global audiences through the lens of individual experiences. His newly released event series “Ted” debuted on Peacock and has become the most-watched original title in the streamer’s history over seven days. This year also marks the 25th Anniversary of his hit animated series “Family Guy” on FOX. MacFarlane created, executive produces and stars in Hulu’s Emmy-nominated and critically acclaimed live-action space adventure series “The Orville.”

Legendary actor and cultural icon, William Shatner, will be presenting MacFarlane with the honor at the Saturn Awards ceremony.
Academy President Robert Holguin and Saturn Awards producers Bradley and Kevin Marcus comment, “Seth is a multi-talented entertainer who continues to leave an indelible mark on the community as a whole. His unique style and ability to blend humor with social commentary across a multitude of genres have made him a household name. We are truly honored to bestow this very special award to him.”

The Robert Forster Artist’s Award is bestowed upon an innovative trailblazer for their body of work and impact on the entertainment industry. The Award is in honor of the late, dear friend/Saturn Award favorite Robert Forster (“Jackie Brown”), whose talent and legacy amongst his peers was an inspiration to all. The first recipient of the Award was Christopher Lloyd (“Back to the Future”) and last year’s recipients were Bob Odenkirk and the cast of “Better Call Saul.”
