The 30th Saturn Awards, honoring the best in science fiction, fantasy and horror film and television in 2003, were held on May 5, 2004 at the Universal Sheraton Hotel in Los Angeles, California.
The five Best Film categories were respectively won by X2 (Science Fiction), The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King (Fantasy), 28 Days Later (Horror), Kill Bill: Vol. 1 (Action, Adventure or Thriller), and Finding Nemo (Animation). The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King received the most nominations with thirteen (including two Best Actor nominations and three Best Supporting Actor nominations), and the most wins with eight.
The ceremony marked the only time a person received one single nomination for two different works: James Marsters won the award for Best Supporting Actor on Television for his work on the TV series Buffy the Vampire Slayer and its spin-off series Angel; he portrayed the same character, Spike, in both. Ellen DeGeneres also became the first actress to win an award for voice acting, and the second person to do so after Robin Williams in 1992 for Aladdin.
