The Greek Theatre was the place to be on Saturday night in Hollywood, at the “Scream Awards 2009,” a Spike TV special that honors sci-fi, horror, fantasy and comic-inspired films and TV shows.
Backstage and in the green room celebs like Liv Tyler, Woody Harrelson, Taylor Lautner, Toby Maguire and Jennifer Meyer, Morgan Freeman, Harrison Ford, Quentin Tarantino, Christina Ricci, Anna Paquin, Megan Fox, Kate Bosworth and Ian Somerholder all hung out while taping the show.
Fans gave rock ‘n’ roll legend Keith Richards a standing ovation when Johnny Depp presented him with the Rock Immortal award. “It’s a lot of fun,” Johnny Depp told RadarOnline.com exclusively backstage about being at the award show. We asked the Mad Hatter (his role in the new Alice in Wonderland) if he liked award shows, ever the diplomat, Johnny told us “It’s not my thing, but I’m having a good time.”
In an amazing exclusive for Twilight fans, Taylor Lautner showed guests world-premier footage from New Moon, and the audience went wild! Twilight won for Best Fantasy film. Although not in attendance, Rob Pattinson and Kristen Stewart won Best Fantasy Actors. Taylor beat out his co-star RPattz for the Breakout Performance award. Dressed in a black leather jacket, Taylor told an animated story to his friends that had them screaming with laughter in the green room.
The Best Horror Actor and Actress awards went to real life engaged couple Stephen Moyer and Anna Paquin, who was wearing a gorgeous purple Marc Jacobs dress. Stephen was walking with a cane and told us “I tore my meniscus; I didn’t know what that word was until about two weeks ago.” How did he hurt himself? The True Blood star told RadarOnline.com “Rolling around with my kids. I’d like to say it was some kind of thrusting, sexy injury, but it really isn’t!”

Looking absolutely stunning in a red Martin Grant dress, Megan Fox brought boyfriend Brian Austin Green and hung out with him in the green room. The Transformer beauty surprised the crowd when she gave a heartfelt and sincere acceptance speech where she at times looked as if she might cry. “I would like to take this moment to actually say something genuine,” the winner of the Best Sci-Fi Actress award told the crowd. “There have been a lot of false reports concerning how I feel about this movie and I just want to be very clear that I’ve always felt that I am a very ordinary part of an extraordinary film. These movies took me out of obscurity and they gave me a career and I am completely grateful to everyone involved with this franchise. I don’t know why you guys keep voting for me for these things. I don’t feel like I deserve them but thank you and I love you so much, thank you.”
The star-studded event was taped Saturday and is scheduled to air as a two-hour special on Oct. 27 at 10pm on Spike TV.
