2009 Scream Awards/Fall TV Season

Voting for the 2009 Scream Awards started recently. For those of you not familiar with the Scream Awards they're kind of like the Oscars for Horror, Sci-Fi, Fantasy and Comic Books. Of course they're not quite as important as the Oscars but at least Spike awards things I actually enjoy. I'm kind of surprised the Supernatural was completely ignored though. IMHO it should have been included in Best TV Show and Best Ensemble, hell Jim Beaver should have been included for Supporting Actor as well. Bobby is awesome. I also think they overlooked a ton of amazing comic artists but at least they didn't include Greg Land right? Anywho, one inclusion that did make me extremely happy was Eden Lake in the category for Best Foreign Film. I won't go into how much I love this movie again you can scroll down for that. ;-p

Just a quick bit on the upcoming Fall TV Season. I really wish I could smack the CW and Fox upside their heads for scheduling Supernatural and Fringe at the same freaking time!! Didn't it occur to them that maybe these shows share a lot of the same fan base? Not everyone can afford DVRs so someones ratings are going to take a hit cause of their poor planning. I adore both shows and have yet to decide which I'm going to watch on TV and which gets regulated to reruns. Probably Fringe but since I have no intention of watching Vampire Diaries it would certainly be easier to just keep it on Fox for the evening since Fringe follows Bones another of my favorite shows. Looks like Smallville has been demoted to Fridays which isn't that surprising really. I still laugh everytime I read about it getting a spin-off. Maybe they should focus on making Smallville consistently good before they do that. Like maybe bringing back Lex? Pretty pretty please.
