SCREAM Award winners are chosen by fans, and though the 4th annual awards ceremony will not be broadcast until October 27th on Spike TV, there are some wonderful pictures of the True Blood Scream Team at the event.

Rutina Wesley (Tara Thornton) was absolutely stunning in her little black dress as she walked the red carpet.

Alexander Skarsgård accepted his award for Best Villain from his Straw Dogs costar, Kate Bosworth.  The microphone was not built for Vikings, apparently, and there are some very cute photos of him having to fold himself in half during his speech.

The entire cast took the stage when True Blood was announced as Best TV Show, and both Alan Ball and Sam Trammell spoke to the audience while the rest of the cast looked on (and occasionally acted up in the background).

    ARRRGHH.. I was working on something and totally forgot to tune in I hate myself for not putting an alarm in my phone!

    I gotta find a you tube of this one does anyone have a link?

    I had a feeling True Blood was going to win, but it stole the show! Great Job to the cast and crew and hopefully True Blood has a long lived career on HBO. Wouldn’t it be nice if it had as many seasons as Entourage or dare I say the Sopranos?

    I think the talent and chemistry is there and Vampires are hot everywhere for them to keep pushing along. I think shows like Kolchak:the Knight Stalker, Forever Knight and Kindred the embraced started the spark and the kindling caught fire then after a few years it smoldered for a while and almost died out then Buffy and more its spin off angel re-ignited the flames then True Blood set it ABLAZE! now all kinds of vampire this and that is everywhere but obviously we all know what we fiend for at 9:00 on HBO when its fang season.

    CONGRATULATIONS, True Blood Scream awards have become very popular and noticed since spike started them and it is a great tribute they won so many awards,Great!

      Hi Steven,

      Should be great, they looked like they were all having such a good time.

    I’m really So Glad they won!! They really deserve it! As for Taylor Lautner Over Sam Trammell…Are They F***ing Crazy??
    Anyway, the photos are Awesome! Sorry, couldnt help that.
    I suppose That OTHER Vampire Series won its fair share,too.
    Its Strange that they would give TL the award when the film that features his new “bod” and acting Has NOT been released YET to the movie going public! I’m sure he wasnt awarded for his role in the 1st Twilight film as he was only in a few scant scenes.
    I’m really happy for all of them! They All looked so good!
    SAM Whats up with the “Disheveled Playboy” Look??
    Did You Have to look like you slept in your clothes??
    I’m Only Kiddin’ with ya Sammy!

    There could be more just, all of group deserve. Clearly a fan of Anna Paquin, Stephen Moyer, Alexander, and the series, could not be happier. The series is fantastic. Waiting anxiously for the 3rd season.
