'Inception', 'Twilight', and 'True Blood' face off at Spike TV's Scream Awards

inceptionImage Credit: Stephen VaughanThink the Oscars are a little too touchy-feely? Maybe Spike TV’s Scream Awards (airing Oct. 19) are more your speed: The genre-loving kudofest, now in its fifth year, honors the best and badass-est sci-fi, horror, fantasy and comic book entertainment — basically anything geek-tested and fanboy-approved. And don’t expect winners to thank the Academy; they’ll owe their statues to votes from web surfers like you on the show’s site.

This year’s top nominee is Inception, which leads the pack with 15 nods including Fight Scene of the Year (for that brain-melting zero-g ballet), Best Ensemble, and Ultimate Scream, where it faces stiff competition from the likes of Twilight: Eclipse, True Blood, and Avatar. Then there’s our personal favorite category, Holy Sh*t! Scene of the Year, whose illustrious nominees include “Dren mates with Clive, Splice” (if you saw the movie, you probably just got chills reading that) and “Damon McReady Shoots Little Daughter Mindy in Chest, Kick-Ass.” You won’t see those at The Golden Globes, that’s for sure.

The awards don’t get passed out until next month, but vote now and tell us how you picked your winners in the comments below!

    Why does anyone bother with these things? Twilight will just win everything. Take it out of the competition and things might get interesting again

      Twilight has no chance at the Scream awards. At all.

      • Cheryl

        Shows what you know!

      • Mr. Holloway

        Never, EVER underestimate the power of the Twi-hards.

      • Danger Joe

        You mean Twi-tards.

      • Celia

        You would think that but last year twilight disgustingly won everything it was nominated for. The twi-idiots vote like their lives depend on it. But this show is pointless…however, I hope Inception wins everything.

  • Heather

    Since Lost got snubbed at the Emmy’s, at least show them some Scream Award love!!! Go vote!

  • Sam

    There is nothing badass about twilight. Saying twilight is badass is the same as saying Eat Pray Love is badass.

    • Celia

      Lol. Dont insult Eat, Pray, love like that.

  • Slasher

    I always vote in the horror section. In this case, I hope Shutter Island wins.

    I don’t care much for the sci-fi, fantasy, comic books sHIt, bc they don’t have much gore or excitement anymore. At least, that’s how I c it.
