Great moments from last night's SCREAM AWARDS

The pre-taped and tightly-edited Scream Awards aired on Spike TV last night. Kind of hilarious, but it's like the Comic-Con of awards shows. Strike's more like the corporate-sponsored VIP-party-at-Comic-Con of awards shows. Still, it was mighty entertaining to watch all the celebs reacting to the cosplayers that Spike used to front-load much of the crowd.

A few highlight videos below.

We were given a much better glimpse at some of the gore and nightmarish images of SHUTTER ISLAND in a new cut of trailer materials:

Unfortunately Scream decided not to post video of the cast of THE BIG BANG THEORY doing a very fun introduction to the BATTLESTAR GALACTICA memorial/love/shoutout, before the cast (and David Eick) took their bow onstage. That's really the best part of the sequence. But, here's the semi-awkward video of the cast accepting the award. (Where's Ron Moore?) Whatever. I miss you adorkable BSG cast!!!! Gotta buy my BSG: THE PLAN dvd now. XOXO

Alan Ball accepted his award for TRUE BLOOD as Best TV Show, omg like fer sure! I'm glad he also gave the wonderful and under-appreciated Sam Trammell a moment to be his charming goofy self.

Really, these days, what is an awards show without at least a teensy bit of new NEW MOON footage? This evening it was some pretty damned cool Wolf Pack stuff. MACHO.

This trailer has been out for at least a week, but it was new to me when I saw it last night - the 2nd trailer for THE WOLFMAN. Looks like these cats have got the goods. Pretty fantastic.

An apparently stoned or drunk (?) Elizabeth Mitchell introduced a cool new clip from her ABC show V, which premieres next week:

BTW, there are tons of other V clips popping on the net this week, Spoiler TV is archiving many of them.

That was my favorite stuff. The Keith Richards memorial was too short. The Shatner/J.J. Abrams/Star Trek bit was mortifying. The "exlusive! new!" trailer for Burton's ALICE IN WONDERLAND looked exactly like the stuff we've seen already. Liv Tyler continues to be unbelievably, elvishly gorgeous. Not a bad two hours.
