It is that time of year again. Spike TV is hosting their annual Scream Awards, which awards the best in sci-fi, fantasy, horror, and comic genres. The 4th annual “Scream 2009”, filmed at the The Greek Theater in Los Angeles, will air Oct. 27 at 10PM/9C and features nominees chosen by Tim Burton, Wes Craven, Roland Emmerich, Neil Gaiman, Frank Miller, Eli Roth, Zack Synder and many more. The Scream Awards is one of the coolest awards shows (in my opinion) to watch on television as are MTV’s Movie Awards. Star Trek (2009) tops this year’s nominee list with 17 Nominations, “including The Ultimate Scream, Best Science Fiction Movie, Best Director, Best Ensemble, Holy Sh*t Scene of the Year and a nod in the all-new Fight-to-the-Death Scene of the Year category. Comic book-inspired blockbusters “X-Men Origins: Wolverine” and “Watchmen” each nabbed 13 nominations, while HBO’s vampire-themed television series “True Blood” garnered nine nominations.”
Voting for the awards is a Scream awards is a snap. Just go to SpikeTV, choose the category you want to vote in, look at the nominees and make your selection. I was very happy to see Let the Right One In nominated for 10 awards, including Holy S***! Scene of the Year (which I voted for already) and Martyrs (Best Foreign Film category) as well. If you have not seen either film yet, do yourself a horror favor and “get’r done”. Martyrs is best horror film released this year, second only to Let the Right One In. With these films on the agenda for awards, I will be not only voting this year but watching the entire awards show. There are 32 categories this year fro the Scream Awards. How about you? Are you going to vote for Scream 2009? Are you going to watch Scream 2009 on SpikeTV?
