Scream (awards) nominees announced

201009031432 Scream (awards) nominees announced
The 2010 Screams for the best in loud, blood-letting, gun-thumping entertainment were announced this week; however the comics nominees include things like ASTERIOS POLYP, so maybe the Screams have learned subtlety. At any rate, we can’t wait to see David Mazzucchelli rubbing shoulders with Danny Trejo.

Nominees were chosen by an advisory board including such folk as Tim Burton, John Carpenter, Wes Craven, Neil Gaiman,
Damon Lindelof, Eli Roth, Quentin Tarantino, and Joss Whedon
. The winners are chosen by popular cote, which you can do here, with the Screams to be presented at a two-hour Spike-TV extravaganza on October 16.

  1. where’s Splice?! wtf.

  2. Shouldn’t that read “nominees were chosen by the personal assistants of…”?

    “Hey, kid, take this box of crap from Spike TV and fill out these forms. No, I don’t care what you put down, okay? Throw a friggin’ dart at the list, whatever. Then go walk my dogs.”

  3. The Beat says:

    In the case of Asterios and Jill Thompson, the assistants had good taste at least. Actually none of the nominees are horribly embarrassing from the genre viewpoint.

  4. Concerning comics selections, I really don’t know who I’d choose. IMHO, besides Blackest Night & The Boys, all the other titles are must-read !

  5. Kevin Hynes says:

    So…what are the Scream awards? Horror? Sci-Fi? Anything nerdy I guess? I mean I loved Toy Story 3, but it’s odd to see it under best “Scream” play. Sort of shuttered while writing that…
