The Scream Awards is an award show dedicated to the horror, sci-fi, and fantasy genres of feature films. Originally only having Scream Queen and Heroic Performance awards for actors, the personnel awards have expanded to include actors and actresses of all three recognized genres. In addition, comic books awards were also given and have been recently expanded. It is broadcast on Spike TV and has been branded in the past as the Spike TV Scream Awards. Recently, the show has become labeled simply Scream with the respective year, i.e. Scream 2009. The show was created by executive producers Michael Levitt, Cindy Levitt, and Casey Patterson.

Production

Award coverage includes the year between the previous awards show and the live ceremony in October of each year. The event is recorded on a Saturday evening and is aired on a later Tuesday. To condense the show into its two-hour running time, not all awards are aired; during the broadcast of the event for some categories only winners are announced, while some awards are skipped altogether.

Since 2006, the ceremony has been held at the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles, California.

Live rock acts, including Ozzy Osbourne and Korn, have performed at various ceremonies. Other items of note include world premieres for trailers of upcoming films, behind the scenes videos, and outtakes from movies not yet released to home video.
