The beloved Harry Potter movie franchise is receiving an “ultimate farewell tribute” at Spike TV’s 2011 Scream Awards on Oct. 15, EW has learned exclusively, featuring what we are told will be a very special guest! (The show airs on Tues., Oct. 18 at 9 p.m. ET/PT.) Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows — Part 2 has 14 nominations for this year’s awards (tied with X Men: First Class).

Celebrating sci-fi, fantasy, horror, and comic books — i.e. all things geek — the sixth annual Scream Awards will also honor Robert Downey Jr. with the Hero award (for his roles as Tony Stark/Iron Man and Sherlock Holmes) and Nicolas Cage with the Maverick award. Both stars will also debut exclusive footage from their respective upcoming films, Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows and Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance (the event will also feature sneak peeks for Total Recall, The Woman in Black, and Paranormal Activity 3).

J.J. Abrams, Darren Aronofsky, Chloe Moretz, Harold and Kumar‘s John Cho and Kal Penn, True Blood‘s Joe Manganiello, American Horror Story‘s Dylan McDermott, Fringe‘s Anna Torv, and Dr. Who‘s Matt Smith are among the announced attendees.
