Looks like this whole "vampire craze" isn't going away anytime soon.

Spike TV celebrated all things scary and sci-fi Saturday night at the Scream 2009 Awards, and no surprise here, the T's owned the show— Twilight, Transformers, True Blood and Trekkies.

The tasty Taylor Lautner was the talk of the night, not only picking up one of the four Twilight trophies, beating out resident heartthrob Robert Pattinson for Breakout Male Performance (don't worry! R. Pattz and rumored ladylove Kristen Stewart skipped the festivities, but both won Best Fantasy Actors).

Lautner showed up with his game face on, debuting exclusive New Moon footage for those devoted Jacob (and Edward and Bella) fans.

Lautner wasn't the only lovely face in attendance. Megan Fox and Johnny Depp showed up and created memorable moments of their own.

Fox, who has experienced loads of scrutiny since her not-so-nice comments about Transformers mastermind Michael Bay, took home the Best Sci-Fi Actress award and delivered an incredibly modest—and almost moving—acceptance speech.

"I would like to take this moment to actually say something genuine. 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," said the sexpot. "These movies took me out of obscurity and they gave me a career and I am completely grateful to everyone involved with this franchise."

Hear that? Someone just flattered her way back into Bay's good graces.

Depp was on hand to present Rolling Stones guitarist (and Captain Jack Sparrow muse) Keith Richards with the Rock Immortal nod—and the two were dressed in strangely similar fashions. Richards received a much deserved standing ovation during the presentation.

And just because they're adorable, True Blood real-life lovebirds Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer took home matching Best Horror Actor awards.
