Easiest Way to Make Your Awards Irrelevant? Nominate Megan Fox

The Spike TV Scream Awards were announced yesterday. For the unfamiliar, the Scream Awards are, essentially, awards no one gives a shit about that are announced during one of the slowest news weeks of the year, giving desperate movie bloggers something to post. Savvy fuckers. It's either that or re-posting the Transylmania trailer.

Welcome to the Tuesday before Labor Day, folks. I could frost a cake with your eye glaze.

So, The Scream Awards celebrate the best in horror and sci-fi, by which I mean: Twilight, because even male-oriented television stations aren't above cashing in on the titters of teenage girls (Real World Value: 2 Doubloons). It's also the only movie awards that put Let the Right One In in the same category as Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, and Sam Raimi in the same category as Michael Bay, which is bit like having truffles and lime Jell-O. The noms are all over the place. Seriously: Megan Fox is nominated for best actress. The Spirit is nominated for best comic-book movie. What the fuck are they thinking? And if you really want to know how lame these awards are, look no further than the nominations for "Holy Shit! Scene of the Year," which includes Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.

Yeah. Lame.
