Kate Beckinsale (“Underworld: Evolution”) was bestowed the title of "Scream Queen," Evangeline Lilly ("Lost") was designated "Fantasy Fox," and Jessica Alba was named "Sexiest Superhero" for her work on “The Fantastic Four.” Special Honorees for the evening included Frank Miller, (“Sin City” and the upcoming “300,”) who received the first annual "Comic-Con Icon Award," "Scream Mastermind Award" winners Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez, whose thriller "Grind House" hits theaters in 2007, and the dark prince himself, Ozzy Osbourne, who was presented with the "Scream Rock Immortal Award."
