The Spike Scream Awards were taped in Los Angeles Saturday night (to air Tuesday October 27th). The new Star Trek movie started the night with the most nominations and walked away with a few awards, including the top prize of “Ultimate Scream” as well as Best Sci-Fi Film. And in a surprise, William Shatner appeared on stage to pick up one of Trekâ€™s awards.
Star Trek led the nominations at the Spike Scream Awards with a total of 17 nominations in 15 categories. We donâ€™t have the full list of winners and losers, but a partial list is up at AP and DreadCentral. For the seven known categories that Star Trek was nominated, it lost four, and picked up three, including Best Science Fiction Film, and Best Director for JJ Abrams. Abrams was at the event and the director award was presented to him by Harrison Ford.
One of the awards we know Star Trek didnâ€™t pick up was for Best Actress. Zoe Saldana was outvoted by fans of Transformers star (and apparent Star Trek fan) Megan Fox.
The biggest award of the night was the “Ultimate Scream” and Star Trek was up against some stiff competition. Actor Morgan Freemen presented the award and after he announced Star Trek had won, the crowd got a surprise when William Shatner stepped onto the stage to accept the award.
Only one Star Trek cast member walked the red carpet at the event. Star Trekâ€™s new Dr. McCoy Karl Urban was there.
