I’m probably going to catch the Scream awards show tomorrow on Spike (“The event honoring the best in sci-fi, fantasy, comics, and horror”).  Because (A) I have this weird weakness for awards shows and (B) if you nominate Zombieland for something, I’ll be there.  Recap Wednesday, maybe.  Here’s my Will Win/Should Win (nominees at the link above).
