Scream Awards 2010

The Scream Awards honour the best in SciFi, Fantasy Comics & Horror. Kick-Ass leads the race with 17 nominations, followed by Inception at 15, Iron Man 2 at 13 and "True Blood" at 10. The awards honour both film and TV, so you get to vote for your faves of both the big and small screens such as "Lost", "Dexter" and "V" alongside District 9, Zombieland and Avatar.

I was happily surprized to see The Human Centipede get some well deserved nominations this year (mutilation and villain), especially as the foreign film category is gone and now we have a 3D category. Another big surprize was see a (well-deserved) nomination for Charlotte Gainsbourg in Antichrist, as Best Horror Actress. Two great categories this year are the breakout performance, both male & female have tons of great actors in there from Tom Hardy to Andrew Garfield to Chloë Grace Moretz. I was surprized to see Morena Baccarin in there for "V", being a fan of hers from back in the Firefly days, although there is no doubt she's one of the best things about the new visitors.

The awards are a part of Spike TV which isn't a station I usually watch, but I've been thinking a lot about genre recently and it's interesting to see the films and TV shows section off into the different categories. Here's a selection of the break downs:

Fantasy Nominations include: Kick-Ass, Alice in Wonderland and The Twilight Saga: Eclipse
Science Fiction Nominations include: Inception, Iron Man 2, Avatar, "Lost" an District 9
Horror Nominations include: "True Blood", Zombieland, Shutter Island and "Dexter"

It's interesting, I wouldn't have though Kick-Ass and Iron Man 2 would be in separate categories, but they are and it does make it's own kind of sense and they do face off in categories like Best Superhero. Interesting, thinking of Kick-Ass as fantasy actually, makes a lot of sense.

Due to the nature of the nomination categories at times being very descriptive and therefore a little spoilery (Fight Scene, Most Memorable Mutilation & Cameo), I've noted the film/TV series that's in the running and provided a link if you want to click through to see the specifics. You can vote daily for your faves, so don't miss out on having your say!
