The Scream Awards, to me, are a combination of the MTV Movie Awards and the Saturn Awards. They represent the best in horror, fantasy, and sci-fi, but voted on by the fans. Though the Screamies (?) also include comic-related categories such as Best Comic Writer, Artist, Movie, etc. Also, it should not be that much of a shocker that shows like True Blood (which IS a damn good show), BSG, Lost, Fringe and movies such as Watchmen, Star Trek, Twilight, Let The Right One In have dominated this year in nominations.
I think it is a bit cool to have a nomination (ie Best Supporting Actress) that combines both TV roles and movie roles.
I watched last year’s award show, mainly just to see how many awards The Dark Knight picked up (it was seven).
The 2009 Scream Awards airs October 27th, on Spike.
