TV: Spike TV’s “Scream Awards” Nominees Announced – Very Few Actual Horror Movies!

Yeah yeah yeah. I know that the “Scream Awards” celebrate other genres besides horror. But the thing takes place in October. And it’s called the “Scream Awards”. And it’s kind of weird that Super 8 is nominated for best “Scream-Play” since it has very few screams and certainly isn’t a very good screenplay to begin with.

Still, there are plenty of quality films in all the categories so why not vote for your favorite?

Per Spike TV, “This year’s show will also continue the tradition of featuring exclusive World Premieres from some of the most anticipated movies of 2012. The two-hour event will premiere on Spike TV on Tuesday, October 18 (9:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT). Presenters will be announced shortly.

Hit the jump for some nominees.
