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" 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' 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" 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.
