Ron Moore’s Battlestar Galactica was also nominated for Best TV Show. 

Spike Scream 2007 Star Trek reunion

“Best Cameo” for Winona Ryder?

Boy, people are going to be complaining about that.

But I actually thought she was fine.

Stuff the ballot boxes!!!!

The choices between Best Actor and Supporting actor were tough

It’ll be interesting to see how ‘Trek fares in the actual awards. I’ll be rooting for it, though!

August 31, 2009 4:16 pm

Rosario Dawson really geeks out in that clip , give her a role in the next movie already, will ya ?

August 31, 2009 4:22 pm

aka the useless awards.

August 31, 2009 4:36 pm

Great to see Star Trek being recognised again! 17 nods wow,even though i have no idea what Spike is.

August 31, 2009 4:39 pm

@1: You lucky SOB! Happy birthday in advance. :D

@7: It’s just a bit of fun. You were expecting maybe a Nobel nomination instead?

August 31, 2009 4:41 pm

Uh, yeah. At least people have heard of those.

August 31, 2009 4:42 pm

#7 :: It’s something. And 17 nods is a lot if you ask me. And somewhere, someone will be watching them, so they’re not totally useless.

August 31, 2009 4:44 pm

Already voted in the polls and Star Trek got most of my votes. Is it wrong that I voted for Simon Pegg as best supporting actor over Leonard Nimoy?

August 31, 2009 4:55 pm


Spike is a US basic cable channel geared to male audiences. I used to have it on my cable system when I lived in the US. I now live in the UK.

I love the fact that Star Trek garnered 17 Spike Scream Award nominations. I hate that I won’t get to see the Spike Scream Awards this year. I hope they have it posted on You Tube.

The cast was fantastic! They all deserve to be nominated.

August 31, 2009 4:57 pm


Yes it is. We can vote for Pegg next movie. Nimoy deserves everything he can receive.

August 31, 2009 5:00 pm


Spike used to have the rights to TNG, DS9, and Voyager. They still show Voyager every now and then.

August 31, 2009 5:05 pm

Winona Ryder? Really?
Fight-to-the-death? Really? Who died?

August 31, 2009 5:20 pm


I just voted on the polls and Star Trek XI got the majority of my votes as well. I also voted for Simon Pegg as best supporting actor. Sorry Leonard!

August 31, 2009 6:27 pm

Why do they pick Ryder instead of Nimoy?

August 31, 2009 7:03 pm

The thing is will anyone outside Trek or Spike fans give the Scream awards any more ink than the 6 letters use in newspapers. Guess they will have to almost pay non fans to watch the awards show.

Maybe Spike could buy some main network TV AD time.

#7: “aka the useless awards.”

aren’t all awards (aside from the Hugo and the Saturn Awards) useless?

August 31, 2009 8:04 pm

Nah, I think Saturn Awards are really nice paper weights.

Votes cast- all for our Team. Good luck gang. ;-)

August 31, 2009 10:30 pm

I don’t think this awards are completely useless… I actually think it’s pretty cool! It may not be a prestigious awards show, but it gets a lot of views!

August 31, 2009 11:01 pm

I’m happy to see the movie awardified or honor-just-to-be-nominatified or whatnot, but to echo post 16: when did Kirk and Spock fight to the death in ST09?

August 31, 2009 11:58 pm

Eff this, we all know Twilight is gonna get all the awards.

September 1, 2009 12:34 am

doesnt seem right that Simon Pegg got nominated and not Karl Urban. Seriously, I thought he was so much better as McCoy than Pegg was at Scotty. I guess it doesnt come down to who was better, though, but who was the bigger name.

September 1, 2009 8:36 am

I think this is cool. It’s just another sign that Star Trek is popular again. And popular with a young demographic!

September 1, 2009 11:50 am

Spike and Trek are both owned by Viacom/MTV Networks.
So these nominations are nothing but self promotion.

September 1, 2009 12:06 pm

I hope not twlight better not win tht movie sucks balls True blood is the true vampire love story
Star Trek For the Win but i hate when they put my favortie shows on the esnemble awards i hated it
Its Treu Blood And Star Trek

September 2, 2009 6:09 pm

#29-why so much hate? Dude, I’m with you with True blood, it’s brilliant! I’m going with Quinto for leading male, he’s edgy and weird. I wish he could have a cameo on TB!

“Star Trek XI” Nominated for a “Spike Award?”

More like a “Spike through the HEAD award!”

Sorry bit of film making!

September 3, 2009 11:39 pm

The Spike Scream awards is an amazingly fun show to watch, especially with it being so close to Halloween!

September 7, 2009 11:00 am

31…you just a hater.
