It is becoming a bit of a tradition for the Spike TV Scream Awards to honor popular science fiction shows that have recently gone off the air. Last year the award show reunited the cast of Syfy’s epic space opera Battlestar Galactica. The show even included a replica of a Cylon raider in the tribute, which gave the event a highly appreciated, extra injection of geek love.
This year Spike brings together several of the cast members of ABC’s massively popular Lost; or as we know them, the survivors of Oceanic flight 815.
Cast members that are expected to be in attendance are: Jorge Garcia (Hugo ‘Hurley’ Reyes), Harold Perrineau (Michael Dawson), and Henry Ian Cusick (Desmond Hume). Executive producers Carlton Cuse, and Damon Lindelof are also scheduled to appear. It is likely that additional cast appearances will be announced in the coming days.
As a part of the promotional campaign for the show, Spike has created a new “Dharma Initiative orientation film” which details the scheduled event in true Scream Awards style.
Take a look at the video below for a flavor of what we can expect from the “Farewell Tribute To Lost”, and the awards show itself:
Spike TV’s annual Scream Awards is a fun, lighthearted event honoring the best in sci-fi, fantasy, comics and horror for the year. Traditionally there are lifetime achievement and special recognition awards given out as well. Standard awards include, but are not limited to: The Ultimate Scream, Best Fantasy Actress, and Most Memorable Mutilation.

Also expected to be in attendance at this year’s Scream Awards are Megan Fox, Kristen Stewart, Neve Campbell, and Hayden Panettiere. In addition to all the lovely ladies, Wes Craven himself will be there to present never-before-seen footage from the highly anticipated fourth instillation to the, aptly named, Scream franchise, Scream 4.
The Scream Awards will air on Spike TV on October 19th at 9PM/8C
