Scream Awards 2008: General Round Up
So, The 2008 Scream Awards Show actually took place Saturday night, but the telecast aired last night on Spike TV. If you didn’t get a chance to see it or if my liveblog just ain’t doing it for you? Here’s a handy little guide to what you should try to catch on the replay. Or Youtube. Whatever.
Highlights of the telecast:
An amazing and creepy performance by Kerli.A full out rock performance by The Smashing Pumpkins.Preview of the Ballet Studio Scene from Twilight, which was introduced by Cam Gigandet.Preview of the new Friday the 13th film, introduced by stars Jared Padalecki and Danielle Panabaker.Gerard Way proudly stood in front of the Owlship (I am sorry for the fuzzy video, I am trying to track down actual photos/screenshots!) in order to introduce Zack Snyder, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Malin Akerman and Carla Gugino……who then proceeded to introduce world premier footage from Watchmen. Holy crap, guys.If you want more of GWay’s activity, check out kindofadraag‘s awesome Gerard Way round up. Sadly, this means that she rounded up all the Buzznet coverage of his appearance, including her awesome exclusive interview. Not that she hog tied him and set him to a fellow Buzznetter.
