The Scream Awards is arguably the biggest genre event of the year (besides, y'know, Halloween). Filmed last Saturday night at Universal Studios Hollywood, genre luminaries like George Lucas, Robert Downey Jr., J.J. Abrams, and Nicolas Cage were just some of the stars on hand to celebrate the best in horror, sci-fi and fantasy.
Interestingly enough, the night's top honor, "The Ultimate Scream Award," went to a film that is not particularly scream-inducing: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows pt. 2. Don't worry; some scary stuff picked up prizes as well - check them out after the break.
Let Me In left with the award for Best Horror Movie, while Darren Aronofsky danced away with the Best Director Award and Mila Kunis with Best Supporting Actress Award for Black Swan. Enough of the puns? Chloe Grace Moretz took Best Horror Actress for Let Me In; Alexander Skarsgard won Best Horror Actor and Joe Manganiello won Best Male Breakout Performance for True Blood. True Blood also took home the Best Ensamble Cast award. Piranha 3D took home Best Mutilation Scene, but it wasn't for the one I assumed it would be for - it won for the motorboat scalping.
