Scream for Matt!
The Spike TV Scream Awards took place recently at Universal Studios in Los Angeles. Why should this concern you at all you ask? Because Matt Smith triumphed over other well-known actors to win a prestigious award!
Fighting off some very strong competition in the form of Daniel Craig, Chris Evans, Harrison Ford and Jake Gyllenhaal, Smith won the category of best sci-fi actor. He beat James Bond, Captain America, Han Solo (also Indiana Jones) and Donnie Darko to the role of top dog. That’s quite an achievement considering that Matt only recently really jumped into the limelight of superstardom as an actor!
Unfortunately, Doctor Who as a show lost out to Game of Thrones but Matt’s victory is enough to keep everyone content that his performance is still continuing to impress many, many people.
Harry Potter cleaned up with the awards of course but it’s the victory of Smith that will linger in the minds of Doctor Who fans across the globe.
Star Wars creator George Lucas also made an appearance to present Darth Vader with the special Ultimate Villain honour.
But was it deserved? Vader wanted to rule a galaxy – the Master nearly helped to cause the end of time itself. Surely he should have been getting an award?
