Scream Awards a geek dream

Stars celebrate the year in horror films

The Greek Theater in Los Angeles turned into the “geek” theater Saturday when Spike TV hosted the fourth annual Scream awards.

 Attended largely by costumed fanboys, the event, which salutes all things sci-fi, fantasy, horror and comicbooks, showed signs of Comic-Con-esque growth with stars such as Johnny Depp, Harrison Ford, Megan Fox and Tobey Maguire in attendance.

 “I feel at home here,” said helmer J.J. Abrams, who received the directing kudo for “Star Trek.” “The people in this audience are the same people we depend on when making these movies.”

Backstage Quentin Tarantino praised “Drag Me to Hell” director Sam Raimi, saying, “One of the best movies of the year, Sam. Just awesome!”

“True Blood” and “Twilight” were the night’s big winners, nabbing four trophies each, while fans were also treated to an exclusive “New Moon” clip presented by thesp Taylor Lautner.

A loud and spooky after-party was held, fittingly, at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery.
