Spike TV Scream Awards Photos Red Carpet Arrivals


The gallery below contains a few of the images that I took from the Scream Awards red carpet arrivals on Saturday night. It was a lot of fun to see so many of my favorite actors that night. Joe Manganiello of True Blood was very happy to be there and represent “True Blood”. Sean Bean and Lena Headey from HBO’s “Game of Thrones” were all smiles! I had a chance to chat quickly with Mr. Bean and let him know how a lot of True Blood fans loved his show (and yes how sad they were when he “left” the show). He was very appreciative of all the fans! (he was there with his beautiful daughters).

Matt Smith, “Dr. Who” was really a highlight for me as a big fan of his show!

Pee Wee Herman was a riot as always and very happy to receive the “Visionary” Scream Award.

I will be posting links to more photos shortly (almost 300 images) plus the video clips from Spike TV. Thanks again to all the fans who voted for Alexander Skarsgard who won the “Best Horror Actor” (second year in a row)! Click on READ MORE for the photo gallery: Continue reading

Spike TV Scream Awards 2011 Visionary Award Recipient Named

Spike TV just released the winner of their Scream Awards 2011 “Visionary Award”. Paul Rubens will receive this award for his groundbreaking work as “Pee-Wee-Herman”.  Additional talent was also listed as being in attendance for the award show taping this upcoming Saturday 10/15/11. The show will air on 10/18/11. Skarsgardfans admin will be on the red carpet to cover the awards show. I’ll try to also do live “tweets” and blogging during the taping. So far no confirmation if there will be any other True Blood cast members present other than Joe Manganiello. As soon as I hear of any others I’ll post on this site.

Here is the Spike TV press release:

[box] SPIKE TV’S “SCREAM AWARDS 2011” NAMES SCREEN LEGEND PAUL REUBENS AS ITS “VISIONARY AWARD” RECIPIENT FOR HIS GROUNDBREAKING WORK AS “PEE-WEE HERMAN”

Quentin Tarantino, Mark Wahlberg, Bradley Cooper, Kate Beckinsale, Zoe Saldana and Lena Headey Also Set to Appear At Two-Hour Event Which Premieres Tuesday, October 18 At 9:00 PM, ET/PT On Spike TV, With Simulcast On VH1 and VH1 Classic

This Saturday night in Los Angeles, Spike TV will honor the man responsible for one of the most iconic characters of all time, as Paul Reubens will receive the Visionary Award for his work as Pee-wee Herman over the past three decades at “SCREAM Awards 2011.” The two-hour event premieres on Spike TV on Tuesday, October 18 (9:00 – 11:00 PM, ET/PT) and will be simulcast on VH1 and VH1 Classic. Reubens joins an illustrious list of past “SCREAM Awards” honorees, which includes Johnny Depp, Harrison Ford, Keith Richards, George Lucas, Tim Burton, Quentin Tarantino, Sir Anthony Hopkins, Christopher Nolan and Robert Downey Jr., among others. Reubens will be honored for the multitude of ways he entertained audiences as Pee-wee Herman since his introduction of the character in 1978. From the 22-time Emmy® Award winning “Pee-wee’s Playhouse,” to the lengths Herman went to be reunited with his bicycle in “Pee-wee’s Big Adventure,” to the “The Pee-wee Herman Show” on Broadway,

Reubens exhibited one of a kind creativity and groundbreaking originality and has had an extraordinary impact on generations of fans. Said Reubens on his receiving the honor, “If Pee-wee were giving this quote, I think he’d scream out ‘I’m a visionary! I’m a visionary!’ and then run to the dictionary to look up what visionary means. But I know what it means, and I am profoundly grateful and honored to Spike TV for this recognition. I share this with all the amazing collaborators I’ve had over the years and my fans, without whom none of this would be possible or worth it.” “Paul Reubens had a big vision and in bringing Pee-wee Herman and his amazing Playhouse to life, he brilliantly brought us all along on a very big adventure,” said Michael Levitt, executive producer of Spike TV’s “SCREAM Awards 2011.”

“Pee-wee speaks to the inner child in all of us, with a grown-up wit and a timeless irreverence. At the ‘Scream Awards,’ we honor a wide range of visionary geniuses and it has been a longstanding dream to have this chance to honor Paul – and Pee-wee – with the Scream Visionary Award.”

The show will also feature visionary director of “Pulp Fiction,” “Kill Bill” and “Inglorious Basterds,” Quentin Tarantino, Academy and Emmy Award nominee and star of “The Fighter” Mark Wahlberg, “The Hangover’s” Bradley Cooper, “Underworld” and “Van Helsing” star Kate Beckinsale and Lena Headey, star of “Game of Thrones,” who joins castmate Sean Bean at “SCREAM Awards 2011.”

These names are in addition to the already confirmed list of talent that includes two-time Academy Award nominee Robert Downey Jr., Academy Award winner Nicolas Cage, “Black Swan” director Darren Aronofsky, “Lost” creator J.J. Abrams, star of “Kick Ass” and “Let Me In” Chloe Grace Moretz, Kal Penn and John Cho of “Harold and Kumar” fame, “True Blood” star Joe Manganiello, “American Horror Story” lead actor Dylan McDermott, “Dr. Who’s” Matt Smith, “Fringe” star Anna Torv and “Death Valley” cast members Bryce Johnson and Caity Lotz, with more talent to be announced. Fans can vote, as well as view exclusive red carpet and backstage coverage of the event, by visiting scream.spike.com.[/box]

American Horror Story Premieres Tonight on FX

True Blood fans are left waiting for something else to satisfy their need for new “blood”. Perhaps the new show that is premiering today on FX “American Horror Story” will satisfy that need. TV Guide posed that question today in their online article “will American Horror Story be a hit for FX?” Their article also took a look at the recent history of horror on TV. (and yes True Blood was featured) The image above shows 3 images from 3 different horror shows- Walking Dead, True Blood and Supernatural.

Here is an excerpt of their article:

[box] Historically, horror hasn’t scared up a great track record on TV. Supernatural series? Yes. Terrifying ones? No. The good news for FX, which on Wednesday launches American Horror Story, is that audiences seem to be growing braver. Millions have dared to peek out from behind their fingers, making hits out of The Walking Dead and True Blood. Even when Nip/Tuck dipped its scalpels into overt horror — terrorizing us with sadistic serial killer The Carver — it drew record numbers to FX.

But do viewers have the stomach for a haunted house dreamed up by Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk, who gave us both Glee and Nip/Tuck? American Horror Story’s got veteran actors Connie Britton, Dylan McDermott and Jessica Lange, but also a homicidal basement-dwelling creature, angry twin redheads, an enigmatic, er, spirit in a fetish suit, demonic murals, a grotesque burn victim… and that’s just in the first episode.

To gauge the show’s chances, we look back at the last 20 years of horror TV: Dark Shadows revival (1991, NBC), Nightmare Café (1992, NBC), American Gothic (1995-96, CBS): The prime-time reboot of cult melodrama Dark Shadows revived conflicted Barnabas Collins (whose comrades included a young Joseph Gordon-Levitt) as a more feral lovelorn vampire. Fans fell, and hard, until the onset of the Gulf War and erratic scheduling cooled ratings.

A year later, NBC tried out Wes Craven and Robert Englund’s Nightmare Café, a weekly cross between Nightmare on Elm Street and The Twilight Zone that lasted just six episodes. Something more sinister arrived in 1995, when CBS unleashed the bone-chilling, genre-bender American Gothic starring Gary Cole as an immoral sheriff — read: murderous maniac — of a creepy small town in South Carolina. Critics raved, but a too-small audience forced the network to drop it after a season. [/box]

For the full article please visit TVGuide:

American Horror Story will air on FX 10/5/11 at 10pm. I will be watching! They have an interactive online site here where you can explore the home. It has been quite a lot of fun checking out their site to see if they have opened up new “rooms” on the site. Getglue also has limited edition stickers fans can earn based on their check-ins to the show.

Here is a review of the show from Trubookies:  Waiting for season 5 of True Blood sucks but at least with this new show and the premiere of Walking Dead coming soon the waiting will be less painful. American Horror Story site has a full set of clips and behind the scenes videos here:

True Blood’s very own Denis O’Hare has a role in the new show. He will play the role of “Larry the burn guy” in the season premiere. (screencaps above are of Denis in his role from a trailer from FX)
