Spike TV’s ‘Scream 2009 Results
The star-studded event known as The Spike TV Scream Awards was held Saturday October 18th at the Greek Theatre. The event honored the best in sci-fi, horror, fantasy and comic-inspired movies and TV shows. Fans voted online for the winners, so some of the year’s most popular programs and big box-office hits took home trophies, including Transformers, Twilight, True Blood and Star Trek. Highlights form the night included Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards accepting the Rock Immortal award, as well as Quentin Tarantino paying tribute to director George A. Romero with the Scream Mastermind award. Stan Lee received the Comic-Con Icon award which was presented by Tobey Maguire and Morgan Freeman presented the Ultimate Scream award (Best Film) to Star Trek which proceeded with William Shatner stepping on stage to accept the trophy. “This movie was big,” Shatner said. “Imagine how big it could have been with me in it? … I’ll be waiting for your call.”
Twilight was the night’s biggest winner collecting four awards: Best fantasy film, best fantasy actors for stars Rob Pattinson and Kristen Stewart and breakout performance for co-star Taylor Lautner. Lautner also treated fans to the world-premiere footage of the second installment New Moon.
