With awards season just around the corner, one of the funner award shows has just announced its list of 2009 nominees. Its Spike TV's 2009 Scream Awards, which honors the best in sci-fi and horror. Here is the official press release with all of this year's contenders:

"Resistance is futile" this October as Spike TV presents the fourth annual Scream Awards, the first and only global event of its kind to honor the best in sci-fi, fantasy, horror and comic genres. Taping on Saturday, October 17 at The Greek Theater in Los Angeles, CA, Scream 2009 celebrates the hottest films, TV shows, comics, actors, creators, icons and pioneers who have influenced and shaped the industry. This year's show will also continue the tradition of featuring exclusive World Premieres from some of the most anticipated movies of 2010. The two-hour extravaganza will premiere on Spike TV on Tuesday, October 27 (10:00 PM-Midnight, ET/PT). Presenters and musical performers will be announced shortly.

"Eight out of the 10 highest grossing films of all time are in the Scream genres, which is due to the incredible passion and loyalty of these fans," said Casey Patterson, executive producer of Scream 2009 and senior vice president of event production, talent development and studio relations for Spike TV. "We're thrilled to once again to present the only global event honoring their heroes."

Some of the nominees' reactions include:

"Without all of the fans, the claws would have been sheathed a long time ago! Thank you so much," said Hugh Jackman after hearing he was nominated for two Scream 2009 awards and X-Men Origins: Wolverine was nominated for 13.

"Everyone knows it's the VILLAINS who have the most fun. Thanks to the Scream 2009 team and congrats to everyone at True Blood. This is very exciting for the whole show," said Best Villain nominee and star of HBO's True Blood, Alexander Skarsgard.

"Thank you for the nomination and thank you for letting me frighten you. I look forward to doing it again sometime soon," said Ryan Kwanten after hearing he was nominated for Best Horror Actor for his role as Jason Stackhouse on True Blood.

"Getting nominated for kissing a Vulcan is a better fate than logic," said Star Trek's Zoe Saldana after getting word she received two Scream 2009 Awards nominations for Best Breakout Performance: Female and Best Science Fiction Actress.

J.J. Abrams' Sci-Fi action-adventure Star Trek tops the list with 17 nominations including The Ultimate Scream, Best Science Fiction Movie, Best Director, Best Ensemble, Holy Sh*t Scene of the Year and a nod in the all-new Fight-to-the-Death Scene of the Year category. Comic book-inspired blockbusters X-Men Origins: Wolverine and Watchmen each nabbed 13 nominations, while HBO's vampire-themed television series True Blood garnered nine nominations. A full list of categories and nominations are included below.

Ballots were sent out to Spike TV's Scream 2009 advisory board, consisting of some of the most respected and well-known members of the horror, sci-fi, fantasy and comic book worlds who were responsible for advising on categories and determining nominees in each category. All films, television shows and comic books were deemed eligible for inclusion if they were released between August 9, 2008 and July 15, 2009 and were representative of the genres listed.
