'Twilight' was the big winner at last night's Scream Awards (18.10.09).
The vampire franchise won four accolades at the star-studded ceremony at the Greek Theatre in Hollywood, including Best Fantasy Movie, while its two main lead stars Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson were named Best Fantasy Actor in the Female and Male categories respectively.
Their co-star Taylor Lautner won Breakout Performance Male, while 'Transformers 2: Revenge of the Fallen' starlet Isabel Lucas was named Breakout Performance Female.
Isabel's co-star Megan Fox picked up the prize for Best Sci-Fi Actress and took the opportunity to quash rumours of a rift between her and the film's director Michael Bay.
She said: "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.
"These movies took me out of obscurity and they gave me a career and I am completely grateful to everyone involved with this franchise."
Earlier this year, she said of the film: "Unless you're a seasoned veteran, working with Michael Bay is not about an acting experience."
Other winners at the ceremony included 'True Blood', which was named Best TV Show, and J.J. Abrams who was handed the Best Director prize for his work on 'Star Trek'.
