UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. (AP) - Maybe they should switch the name
to the Vampire Choice Awards?
Bloodsuckers struck another vein at the Teen Choice Awards with
"The Twilight Saga" ruling Sunday's ceremony with 12 wins,
including choice fantasy movie and villain, while "The Vampire
Diaries" sucked up seven surfboard-shaped trophies at the taped
ceremony, which is scheduled to air Monday at 8 p.m. EDT on Fox.
"This is what this night is all about," said a gothed-out Katy
The goofy "California Gurls" singer hosted the show with the
male stars of "Glee." Besides going goth, her costume changes
included donning hippie garb next to Kevin McHale, being crowned
prom queen with prom king Chris Colfer, geeking out with Mark
Salling and landing a split as a cheerleader alongside Cory
"Tonight is my chance to go back to high school," said Perry,
"although this time people actually like me."
Voters continued to really like "Twilight" stars Taylor
Lautner and Robert Pattinson, who were present to accept their
multiple awards, seemingly handed out like candy at the
freewheeling ceremony. Of Pattinson's four wins, one was actually
not related to the supernatural saga: choice drama movie actor for
"It's great to win something outside of 'Twilight,"' said
Throughout the show, funnyman Ken Jeong of "Community" and the
upcoming bloodsucker satire "Vampires Suck" lingered inside a
coffin on the side of the stage at Universal Studios Hollywood's
Gibson Amphitheatre. Jeong, dressed as his vampire character Daro,
only emerged to introduce presenters to the crowd of "bloody
The awards, which honor celebrities in television, film, music
and sports, were selected by over 85 million votes cast online.
Other multiple winners included "Gossip Girl," Ellen DeGeneres,
"Pretty Little Liars" and "Wizards of Waverly Place" star
Selena Gomez, who picked up trophies in both TV and music
The extravaganza was punctuated with several silly moments. Kim,
Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian, winners in the reality show and
reality stars categories for "Keeping Up with the Kardashians,"
were joined by their rarely seen older sister: Cougar Kardashian, a
draged-up George Lopez sporting a dress, wig and pair of heels.
"Oh my God," exclaimed Lopez. "I got a blister the size of
Justin Bieber on my heel."
The teen sensation wasn't in attendance at Sunday's show to
retrieve his four awards though. Instead, footage was shown of
Shaquille O'Neal presenting Bieber with his trophies for choice
breakout artist, male artist, summer music star and pop album at
his concert last month in Phoenix before Bieber crooned "U
Taylor Swift also won four awards but wasn't present to accept
for choice female country artist, country song for "Fifteen,"
country album for "Fearless" and breakout movie actress for
"Valentine's Day." Swift, however, did appear in a taped segment
in which she mounted one of her surfboard-shaped trophies in a
Winners on hand included choice action-adventure movie actor
Channing Tatum for "G.I. Joe" and choice drama movie actress
Sandra Bullock for "The Blind Side." While accepting her trophy,
Bullock was interrupted by her "The Proposal" co-star Betty
White, who shared the choice movie dance award with her for their
"I hate to blind-side you, but I've been coming to this show
for years," interjected a grooving White. "If you think you're
fitting in, think again, dear."
Before the ceremony, sweaty celebs strutted down a red carpet
lined with wall gardens bursting with strawberries and other
organic goodies. Also positioned along the carpet were fans - the
ones that circulate air, not obsessive screams - powered by models
pedaling exercise bikes to keep attendees feeling cool.
Levi Johnston, who recently called off his engagement - again -
with Bristol Palin, the daughter of former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin,
walked the red carpet with singer Brittani Senser. Johnston said
his relationship with Palin as the parents of their toddler son,
Tripp, is going well despite their break-up.
"We are doing great," said Johnston. "I talk to her every
day. We keep in touch. Even though with us broken off, it is like
we are together. We found a way to work with each other. Things are
