2010 Scream Award nominations 2010 Scream Award Nominations

We’re now into awards season once more (time flies, doesn’t it?), with the Emmys having come and gone already. Now we have the annual 2010 Scream Awards which celebrates the more fan-friendly type of movies and TV shows that the Oscars and the Emmys might not honor. And the great thing is YOU get to vote for the winners!

Last year they honored such fan-favorites as Star Trek, Watchmen and Fringe with nominations, which I’m sure pleased many of you. Even if they still nominate some questionable movies, there’s no doubting that for the most part, the Scream Awards are a lot more in line with the majority of the movie going audience who pay to see movies purely to be entertained.

Even if the Scream Awards tend to honor the “right” movies however, this year’s nominations still have their fair share of “WTF” picks. For you Twilight haters, sorry but the Saga is still in there (as are a few other peculiar nominations) and there are a few movies and shows in the wrong categories. But for the most part the list is pretty solid.

To let your opinion count head on over to Spike to cast your votes!

Why the actors from the Twilight movies keep getting recognized at award shows is beyond me. Sure, they do their brooding, sulking and at least one of them is going for the record for the most times they can take off their shirt but there are tons of other people that I can think of that should be nominated in acting categories instead of any of the Twilight cast… every single time. But, that’s what fan voting is all about.

I’ll stop there and let you jump in with your thoughts and opinions – leave them in the comments below. And just as a reminder: make sure to head over to Spike to vote for your favorites movies and TV shows.

The 2010 Scream Awards will air on Tuesday October 19th, 2010 at 9:00pm on Spike TV.

    • Twilight is juvenile crap! Who ever heard of a GP rated Vampire movie? Like I said, crap!The REAL winner isn’t even mentioned, Predators! Easily wins it! I’d love to see the Predators land on Earth, a tears the spines and skulls out of all those juveniles in the obnoxious twilight series. Now, on to more important picks, Best Actress on TV, should’ve been, Anna Torv for Fringe! No question. Next, Best Supporting actor on TV should’ve been, John Noble for Fringe! Those two, were ripped off, Peroid! The winner of the best male horror actor, Michael C. Hall for Dexter and Best Villian, John Lithgow as The Trinity Killer in Dexter, Sorry, No children allowed to watch grown up shows. The ones that watch that tripe, twilight, should be sent to bed with milk and cookies before Dexter & fringe comes on TV. Next, Best show on TV, it’s a tie! Dexter & Fringe! Those are the only ones I’m inerested in!

  2. Shutter Island horror?
    V best tv show?
    Taylor Lautner best fantasy actor?

    OMFG! The world is falling apart.

  3. The only reason Twilight noms won last year because there was no competition. INCEPTION!

    • How did such juvenile garbage like twilight win last year? I would’ve voted for the Gecco of those TV commerials before vampire movies rated GP.Just how do G Vampires drane the blood, through IV’s? PLEASE! Again, Juvenile. Why don’t they put the twilight series of movies on the ICarly show? My neice totures me with that tripe when she visits.

  4. Inception and Avatar will probably win a lot of awards. But who knows. Can’t wait for the winners list.

  5. Ross the reason Twilight gets buzz on Scream is because they want ratings.
    Nice that Doc Who got a nom! That’s a first for that show.
    Kick Ass and Inception, clearly the leaders in nominations!!! That’s great.

    Fans of Inception the Scream stage is going to morp like the dream scapes in the movie. Should be the coolest stage design yet.

  6. I’ve tried to vote on these the last 2 years and the website cotinually refused to boot up…so why waste my time on another futile effort?

  7. I’m betting Eclipse will win almost everything it’s nominated for.

    • Not neccesary. The first Twilight got beaten in a lot of categories by Star Trek and Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen.

  8. WTH??? Don’t these guys know the diff bet scifi & fantasy??????


    Scott Pilgrim VS The World

  10. they don’t know the diff betwee their backsides and a horse’s…

  11. I want Tom to win the Superhero category but I doubt he’ll come close.

  12. I won´t bother to vote in anything where is Twilight. Their fans have obviously too much time to click, even when their “stars” and the movie itself doesn´t deserve even to be in theaters (it´s direct-to-DVD movie at best).
    I hope Sharlto Copley wins breakout star (seriously, was there any bigger out-of-nowhere actor than Sharlto?) but he is with some No-name from Twilight, so…no chance. I think he deserves the best sci-fi, too but there is a tough (and very good) competition.

  13. Tom Welling Best Superhero!!! Awesome!!!

    What exactly about Robin Hood was fantasy?

  14. Wow.

  15. Wheres Harry Potter?!? Damn. Oh well i go for avatar,inception and toy story 3,they should win in their categories unless ofcourse theyre against eachother in which case id accapt any of these :)

  16. Can someone explain to me why District 9 is on the list? Didn’t this movie play last year? I can understand Avatar being on the list because it was still playing in theaters in 2010, but D9 started in August 2009. Anyway…

    Why is Harry Potter not on his list? And Morena Baccarin of V; wasn’t she the Ori-psi in Stargate SG1? If so, then V wouldn’t be her breakout performance would it?

    I actually thought the scene where Yellowstone Park blew up was more impressive than Los Angelos in 2012. Anyway, as stated, Twilight will most likely dominate, so why even bother voting.

    • District 9 showed us that story is more important than CGI. Didn’t rely on 3D or big giant robots and we still flocked to see it. Left us asking, why would you take away the HALO movie from this guy?

      • B/c at the time he had no experience (and still doesn’t have enough) in directing a film. There’s no way they would have gambled a big-budget film on someone who had no experience.

  17. um Shutter Island..horror??

  18. I always enjoy the Scream awards looking forward to this. Hope Inception mops up.

  19. If its one thing the Twilight fans its unity. They are a strong viral crowd and since the Scream Awards can be swayed by online voting,,,
    you don’t have to be a member of Fringe to figure it out. 8-)

    • why dont they call this Tween Scream Awards instead

  20. Yea Alice in Wonderland! =-)

  21. … also, lost is awesome =-)

  22. omg i hate avatar wth!! I can watch twilight like 20 times a day and be good with it. and twilight is a GP rated movie because it’s supposed to be for teenagers! but I heard the last one, alot of kids might not get to see it. there’s going to be some disappointent. and if the kids are disapproving then twilight will NOT take home any awards in 2011 or 2012. We all know Rob and Kristen will, but the movie as a whole will be a no go if they do that.

  23. I’m assuming, for the sake of my head not blowing up, that “Scott Pilgrim” was left off the list because it was released too late in the year. Hopefully, it’ll be nominated in large numbers in next year’s awards.

    That being said, I think Clash of the Titans should have had more nominations. Sam Worthington did a pretty good job, as did the FX team.
