Twilight adds to awards haul at Teen Choice
Monday 23 July 2012
The Twilight Saga is going to need a bigger garage.
It was announced at yesterday's Teen Choice Awards in Los Angeles that the supernatural franchise has won 41 surfboard-shaped trophies since 2008, including two awards earned this year for the penultimate film instalment, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1.
Twilight stars Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner were on hand to pick up this year's batch of boards, which included the ultimate choice award, the teenage-fuelled show's version of a lifetime achievement award.
"It's amazing you guys are still around and just as strong and just as loyal," Lautner said over screams from the crowd.
Stewart was honoured as the choice romance movie actress for Breaking Dawn - Part 1, and as choice female summer movie star for Snow White & the Huntsman.
Other multiple winners included the movie The Hunger Games, actress Emma Stone, TV show Pretty Little Liars, the boy band One Direction, CW show The Vampire Diaries, and singers Justin Bieber and Taylor Swift, who picked up her 20th trophy - the most ever won by a female artist.
"I just feel so honoured that I get to have you guys in my life," a beaming Swift told fans. Swift won five awards Sunday: choice female artist, female country artist, single by a female artist for Eyes Open, country song for Sparks Fly and choice movie voice for Dr Seuss' The Lorax.
Host and new X Factor judge Demi Lovato said 134 million votes were cast for the 14th annual awards, which honour film, TV, music and sports stars in such silly categories as choice hottie, villain, lip-lock and hissy fit.
"Are there even that many teens?" asked ceremony co-host and Glee actor Kevin McHale.
Bieber performed his tune Boyfriend and surfed away with five boards, bringing his Teen Choice Awards total to 12 trophies. His girlfriend and birthday girl Selena Gomez won the choice music group trophy and was presented with a cake and rendition of Happy Birthday from the crowd inside the Gibson Amphitheatre.
Other winners on hand to accept their awards included Ellen DeGeneres for choice comedian, Zac Efron for choice drama actor and drama movie for The Lucky One and Jonah Hill for choice comedy movie for 21 Jump Street.
