LOS ANGELES (AP) — Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige has been honored at the 45th annual Saturn Awards that was streamed live for the first time.
Feige said in a video message Friday night that he is “humbled” after accepting the inaugural Stan Lee Builder award, named after the late Marvel Comics mastermind.
The awards show was simulcast for the first time on several platforms including YouTube and Pluto TV.
Aisha Tyler hosted the event, created in 1973 to recognize horror, sci-fi and fantasy films that typically don’t get recognized at major award shows.
“Iron Man” and “Lion King” director Jon Favreau and Marvel executive Jeph Loeb also received honorary awards.
“Halloween” star Jamie Lee Curtis received a standing ovation after winning best actress in a film.
