"The Matrix," "Being John Malkovich," "The Sixth Sense" and "The Green Mile" -- four films either shunned or relegated to the technical categories at the Academy Awards -- were bestowed with the most prestigious trophies from the sci-fi geek world Tuesday night, named the top flicks at the 26th annual Saturn Awards. In other un-Oscar-like news, Tim Allen was named best actor (for "Galaxy Quest"). Christina Ricci took best actress honors for "Sleepy Hollow."

The festivities here at the tony Park Hyatt hotel were attended by sci-fi and movie icons ranging from Peter Fonda to Martin Landau to Sean Young to Katharine Helmond, and on down the list.
