The 2010 Spike Scream Awards Are Handed Out


Spike TV held its annual Scream Awards at the Greek Theater in Hollywood, CA last night and they managed to get some of the biggest names in Hollywood to come out and party with the fanboys. From Sir Anthony Hopkins to Halle Berry, comic legend Bill Murry to director Christopher Nolan — the iconic Sigourney Weaver … the 2010 Spike Scream Awards were a Who’s Who of the biggest names in Sci-Fi, Fantasy, Comic Books, Horror, Video Games, TV, Movies and MORE! Here are some of the folks who strutted their stuff on the red carpet last night along with some spoilery deets from Access Hollywood about what went down at last night’s taping of the Spike Scream Awards (which won’t air until Tuesday October 19):

Ghouls and goblins… Fanboys and freaks… Not to mention, huge stars including Halle Berry, Kristen Stewart, James Cameron, Megan Fox, Mickey Rourke and Michael J. Fox… They all were out in full force for Spike TV’s 5th Annual “SCREAM 2010” awards on Saturday night at the Greek Theatre nestled deep in the woods of LA’s Griffith Park. More than just a frightfest, this still young event has become an awards show for the Comic-Con crowd – honoring sci-fi fare like nomination-leading film “Inception” and TV’s “Lost,” as well as the more expected genre nominees like “A Nightmare on Elm Street” and “Zombieland.” The atmosphere was nothing short of inspired. Fans were all dressed up as their favorite characters. The elaborate “Inception”-designed stage was accented by a giant replica of the film’s famous spinning top. A giant full moon (at times becoming a circular saw or the “Back to the Future” watchtower clock) dominated the backdrop. The presenter platforms were circled by gargoyles spitting fire from their mouths and the trophy ladies were dressed as Natalie Portman’s character in the upcoming “Black Swan.” The evening began with Halle Berry in a shiny mini-dress, introducing the night’s most nominated project, “Inception.” Director Christopher Nolan was on hand to accept on behalf of the dream-bending film’s six wins for the night. In true Comic-Con fashion, some of the most anticipated films of the upcoming year used the night to introduce first looks at footage. Neve Campbell, David Arquette, Emma Roberts and Wes Craven were on hand to world premiere the first footage of “Scream 4,” which drew a huge fan reaction. Other first look world premieres included: “Paranormal Activity 2,” Rainn Wilson on hand to present “Super,” AMC’s new original series “The Walking Dead,” Anthony Hopkins on hand to present “The Rite,” new footage from “Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows,” and new scenes from the upcoming DVD release of “Avatar.” The biggest crowd reaction of the night came when Bill Murray came out in a Ghostbusters costume (accompanied by Ray Parker Jr.‘s famous theme song) to accept on behalf of “Zombieland” for its win for Best Horror Film. “It’s all I had that was clean,” he declared to an ecstatic crowd. Reunions were also a big theme for the evening. David Spade introduced Christopher Lloyd and Michael J. Fox, who were on hand to promote the 25th anniversary re-release of the “Back to the Future” trilogy. The film’s famous DeLorean even made an appearance … Other highlights of the night included James Cameron introducing a special award to Sigourney Weaver (who emerged from a giant “Alien” egg)… a music video from featuring Seth Green, Stan Lee and Katee Sackhoff called “Geek & Gamer Gurls,” set to the tune of Katy Perry’s “California Gurls”… And the best line of the night, which came courtesy of Sarah Silverman: “I just met Megan Fox backstage and she should totally be in Eli Roth’s next movie…. But even if she’s not, I hope she gets tortured and decapitated anyways.”

Since I was lucky enough to attend the Scream Awards last night, I got to watch all of the awesomeness unfold live on stage … and I had a blast. You must tune in Tuesday night to watch … this year’s Spike Scream Awards is by far the best one yet … and it only promises to keep getting better!
