Best Horror Film
30 Days of Night
Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street
No 28 Weeks Later?? Bizarre. And since when is Ghost Rider a horror movie? Incidentally, horror-themed sci-fi flicks Cloverfield and I Am Legend were also nominated for Best Science Fiction Film.
John Cusack (1408)
Johnny Depp (Sweeney Todd)
Will Smith (I Am Legend)
Will Smith?? Hmmm.
Helena Bonham Carter (Sweeney Todd)
Belen Rueda (The Orphanage)
Best Supporting Actor
Alan Rickman (Sweeney Todd)
Shame to see Rickman get it for Sweeney and not Timothy Spall.
Best Supporting Actress
Lizzy Caplan (Cloverfield)
Marcia Gay Harden (The Mist)
Rose McGowan (Planet Terror)
Tim Burton (Sweeney Todd)
Frank Darabont (The Mist)
John Logan (Sweeney Todd)
Colleen Atwood (Sweeney Todd)
Atwood was also nominated for the Oscar.
Howard Berger, Greg Nicotero & Jake Garber (Planet Terror)
Davina Lamont (30 Days of Night)
Peter Owen & Ivana Primorac (Sweeney Todd)
Nicotero is the heir to the Savini throne, but my vote goes to Lamont.
Best International Film
Day Watch (Belarus)
The Orphanage (Spain)
Very surprising not to see [REC], which I found to be better than any American horror movie I saw all year.
Best Network TV Series
Best Syndicated/Cable TV Series
Go, Dex! Best show I've seen since the heyday of HBO.
Best International Series
Best Actor on TV
Michael C. Hall (Dexter)
After literally stealing the show on Six Feet Under and now starring in this cult smash, watch for Hall to become one of the major movie stars of the next decade.
Best Supporting Actor on TV
Erik King (Dexter)
Best Supporting Actress on TV
Jennifer Carpenter (Dexter)
Jaime Murray (Dexter)
Carpenter is another major reason to catch Dexter. She'll be playing the lead in Quarantine, this year's American version of [REC]--which will at least make that pill a lot easier to swallow.
Best DVD Release
Behind the Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon
The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari (Remix)
White Noise 2
The Monster Squad
Monster Squad finally got its feverishly awaited release last year, so that's got to be the sentimental favorite.
Best Collection on DVD
The Mario Bava Collection (Vol. 1&2)
Vincent Price (MGM Screen Legends Collection)
Best Retro TV Series on DVD
The 1977 BBC miniseries is now available with the baby-killing scene fully restored. Yay!
George Pal Memorial Award
Guillermo del Toro
Special Achievement Award
Tim Lucas (author of Mario Bava: All the Colors of the Dark)
