Super 8 Wins Spike Scream Awards’ Best Sci-Fi Movie

fb share tweet share

Super 8The Spike Scream Awards are set to air tonight, but we already know which movies are the winners. The one that should matter to you most, if you’re a regular reader of this site, is their award for best Sci-Fi movie. That went to Super 8.

Super 8 was kind of a let down, but still a well enough made film, so I guess that awarding makes a certain kind of sense, particularly if you’re only looking at mainstream movies. A lot of critics probably would have lobbied for Attack the Block to win instead and personally I’d have gone with Paul, Rise of the Apes, or even Source Code ahead of Super 8 as the year’s best sci-fi so far (though I hope it’ll end up being John Carter before 2011’s said and done).

Other sci-fi centric winners include Milla Jovovich as Best Sci-Fi Actress for her work in Resident Evil: Afterlife, and Matt Smith as Best Sci-Fi Actor for being an awesome Doctor on Doctor Who.
