Spike TV's 2010 Scream Awards took over the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles Saturday night to applaud some of the most memorable sci-fi hits from past to present. To properly pay tribute, the event trotted out some major names for the festivities.
"X-Men" alum Halle Berry showed up in a snug, gilded number to present the first honor of the evening, Most Mind-Bending Film, to director Christopher Nolan for the elaborate dreamscapes of "Inception."
Entering the stage in a nude sheath, former "Transformers" star Megan Fox handed the hardware for Best Villain to her "Passion Play" co-star and tattoo inspiration Mickey Rourke, for his turn as Ivan Vanko in "Iron Man 2."
"Paranormal Activity 2" stars Katie Featherston and Micah Sloat unveiled the trailer to the follow-up to their breakout, creep-inducing hit and "Thor" actor Chris Hemsworth gave the Best Comic Book Writer award to DC Comics' Geoff Johns.
"The Office" actor Rainn Wilson, gave attendees a taste of his upcoming movie "Super" before doling out the "Holy Sh--! Scene of the Year" to head-twisting sex moment in HBO's vampire soap "True Blood."
Honoring one of the most iconic sci-fi romps in movie history, 1985's "Back to the Future," the show recreated the parking lot time-warp scene, and updated the date on the car to October 19, 2010. A voice-over announcer boomed, "The man, the myth, the legend," as a DeLorean drove onto stage. However, audience members were surprised when instead of the film's plucky protagonist Michael J. Fox stepping out of the vehicle, funnyman David Spade popped out instead. After a montage of choice moments from the "Future" trilogy screened, Fox and co-star Christopher Lloyd took the stage to a standing ovation.
The cast of AMC's new post-apocalyptic series "The Walking Dead" introduced an exclusive clip from the show and handed over the trophy for Best Comic Book or Graphic Novel, which fittingly went to The Walking Dead tome the show is based on.
"Batman" villain Aaron Eckhart presented Best Fantasy Actress to "Twilight" superstar Kristen Stewart, who accepted the honor in a two-toned frock.
Nonagenarian author Ray Bradbury was celebrated as the 2010 Comic Con Icon for popular works such as Fahrenheit 451 and The Illustrated Man.
Screen veteran Anthony Hopkins gave viewers a look at his upcoming exorcism movie "The Rite," which follows an American priest who travels to Italy to study the ins and outs of vanquishing demons.
Later, Emma Roberts, David Arquette, Neve Campbell and filmmaker Wes Craven took the stage to present a world-premiere look at the latest flick in the "Scream" series, and in a night crammed with exclusive looks at upcoming films, the audience also got the chance to check out a new trailer for the forthcoming "Harry Potter" flick.
The show also brought out many faces from the perpetually befuddling ABC hit "Lost," including Jorge Garcia, Harold Perrineau and Ian Somerhalder, for a tribute to the recently cancelled show, and to get some answers about what actually went on during the past six seasons. However, no one in the crew gave details and politely declined to answer questions.
Marilyn Manson became a one-man horrorfest when he hit the stage with a woman chained to pole that was set aflame and presented Best TV Show to "True Blood."
Funnywoman Sarah Silverman presented the award for Best Horror Movie to "Zombieland," a moment that segued into another highlight of the evening as Bill Murray made a surprise appearance to accept the award. The actor delighted the crowd by donning his "Ghostbuster" garb as the notes of the film's synth-heavy theme blasted into the theater. He then shouted-out many of his late colleagues such as Rodney Dangerfield and John Belushi.
Sigourney Weaver's legacy as a horror and sci-fi heroine was also celebrated and the screen legend rolled onstage in an egg-like structure similar to the ones found in her latest fantasy hit, "Avatar," which later won Top 3D Movie.
M.I.A. performed sporting a suitably eye-catching look for the eccentric star and rocked the stage in yellow and pink sequined outfit.
Other awards of night went to Alexander Skarsgard for Best Horror Actor in "True Blood" and Most Memorable Mutilation for "The Human Centipede." Skarsgaard's co-star Anna Paquin took home Best Horror Actress. "Zombieland" won for Best Horror Movie. "Twilight Saga: Eclipse" won Best Fantasy Movie and Ryan Reynolds accepted the Top Anticipated Movie award for "Green Lantern."
