Spike TV have announced the nominations for this year’s Scream Awards, celebrating all things horror, sci-fi and fantasy-related. And right among your True Bloods and your X-Men are two very British brands indeed.
Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows Part 2 has been nominated in no less that FOURTEEN categories, including The Ultimate Scream, Best Director and, uh, Best Scream-Play.
Meanwhile, our old friend the Doctor is battling against Fringe, Game Of Thrones, The Walking Dead and True Blood in the Best TV Show category.
Naturally it would be quite wrong to suggest you get on over there and ensure a Time Lord victory. So we won’t do it. You must do what you think is right. But do it soon, ‘k?

• What is it with Spice Girls naming children after bits of New York? Mel B‘s new baby girl has been named Madison. (via New)
• Meanwhile Victoria Beckham is under the scrutiny of PETA, who want to know whether she’s using real reptile skin in her handbag designs, and if so, what kind of conditions the reptiles are kept in. (via Metro)
• There’s no way of broaching this subject delicately, so I’m just gonna say it quickly. Simon Cowell has had a threesome. Now wash your minds, quickly! (via Musicrooms)
