Teen Choice Awards 2014 winners: One Direction, Shailene Woodley, Jennifer Lawrence and Channing Tatum take home trophies

The annual ceremony sees gongs dished out for the music, movie and fashion industries - and for the first time this year web stars from the likes of YouTube

The Teen Choice Awards was roaring a success for heart-rending movie The Fault in Our Stars, which took away no less than seven prizes at the ceremony last night.

The film, which tells the story of two teenagers who fall in love after meeting at a cancer support group, took away the gong for best movie in the drama category and the awards for best movie chemistry and best on-screen kiss.

Ansel Elgort, who plays Augustus Waters in the film, won awards for best actor and breakout star, while Shailene Woodley, who plays his love interest Hazel Grace, took best actress.

The pair were awarded surfboard-shaped trophies at the event held at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles.



Elgort quipped to the audience: “I don't surf or anything, so I guess I'm gonna put this on my wall.”

Britain’s very own One Direction also walked away decorated with countless awards (eight in fact), including best music group, best summer tour, best break-up song (for Story of My Life) and best love song (for You & I).

They also, ironically, won the prize for ‘Choice Twit’, an award for the best Twitter account, as well as, collectively, the gong for the singular ‘Choice Male Hottie’, having been up against Zac Efron, Liam Hemsworth and Ryan Gosling.

Co-hosts of the evening, Tyler Posey of Teen Wolf and Sarah Hyland of Modern Family, said that 165million votes had been cast online.

The awards, which is in its 16th year, honours the movie, music, comedy, sports and fashion industries and for the first time this year - web stars.

Cameron Dallas was voted the best Viner, while Mylie Cyrus was considered to be the greatest Instagrammer.

The results caused a bit of a stir online, however, with some of the embittered losers in the web category alleging that the voting process is "rigged".

According to the Washington Post, Viner Dallas was so incensed not to have won the 'Choice Web Star - Male' category (which went to Tyler Oakley), that he tweeted: “It’s funny how they told me I won the Viner award 6 days before the voting ended and made the runners up still vote to tweet for them.” He then deleted the tweets.

‘Choice Movie Villain’ went to Donald Sutherland in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, who stood out from the casual crowd in his tuxedo.

He told the audience: “You named me the most villainous? My wife — I have been married for 42 years — my wife asked me to tell you that she agreed with you.”

Taylor Swift won the 'Choice Female Country Artist' award, while best female artist was given to Problem singer Ariana Grande and best male singer awarded to Suffolk-born Ed Sheeran.

Selena Gomez won the 'Ultimate Choice Award' and 'Choice Female Hottie', telling the audience while holding back tears: "I want to thank my mom so much because she's the greatest human being in the world, and she's strong and she's given up her life for me.

"She's incredible. This never belongs to me. This only goes to you."

Demi Lovato, Cher Lloyd and Jason Derulo performed, while Jennifer Lopez and some of the Kardashian/Jenner sisters also attended.
