The stars of “The Twilight Saga” turned out to be big winners of the night Sunday, taking home ultimate choice, the Teen Choice Awards’ lifetime achievement honor. The hit movie series has won a whopping 41 Teen Choice trophies since the first film arrived in 2008.
The Teen Choice Awards got under way with a star-studded red carpet followed by a slew of awards, which were handed out at the Gibson Amphitheater in Los Angeles.
The teen-fueled ceremony honors film, TV, music and sports stars in such categories as choice hottie, villain, liplock and hissy fit. A record 134 million votes were cast this year.
Going into the 14th annual ceremony, Kristen Stewart’s “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1″ and “Snow White and the Huntsman” both led the nominees with seven nods a piece.
Stewart, along with “Twilight” actors Taylor Lautner and Robert Pattinson, were all on hand Sunday to accept their surfboard-shaped trophies. Lautner told the crowd: “We owe everything to you guys,” adding: “It’s amazing you guys are still around and just as strong and just as loyal.” Stewart also thanked the fans for their continued support of the vampire series. Pattinson did the same, and then gave his surfboard to the audience. His co-star and real-life gal pal, Stewart, followed suit.
Stewart also walked away with choice romance movie actress, as well as choice female actress of the summer for her role in “Snow White and the Huntsman.”
Other multiple winners included “The Hunger Games,” boy band One Direction, “The Vampire Diaries,” Justin Bieber and Taylor Swift, who picked up her 20th trophy, the most ever won by a female artist.
“I just feel so honored that I get to have you guys in my life” – Swift said.
The first award of the night, choice comedian, went to Ellen DeGeneres. After accepting her trophy, she honored pint-sized stars, Sophia Grace and Rosie, with the choice Web award.

With the massive success of “The Twilight Saga” and “The Hunger Games”, the eyes of Hollywood have undoubtedly turned to the YA book genre to scope out future big screen hits.
But “Glee” actor Chris Colfer, currently on a book tour to promote “The Land of Stories: The Wishing Spell”, doesn’t intend to rush his latest release to the theaters.
“I wrote a book, so I want it to be a book for a while” – Colfer told The Hollywood Reporter at the Teen Choice Awards red carpet. “And I want a movie to be wanted. I don’t want it to be something shoved down people’s throats.”
Being unwanted certainly doesn’t appear to be a problem Colfer should be concerned about, as fans have been flocking to each stop on his nationwide tour. The Land of Stories centers on twin boys, Alex and Conner, who leave their normal lives behind as they travel to a world of fairytales, filled with witches, wolves, goblins and trolls, but discover that returning home is even more difficult than they imagined.
“At the book signings I always expect people to ask me questions about Glee and everything, but all they want to do is talk about the book” – Colfer told THR. “It’s the biggest compliment ever.”
Earlier this summer, Colfer’s screenwriting debut, Struck By Lightning, was picked up by Tribeca Films. The movie, starring Colfer along with Allison Janney, Polly Bergen, Rebel Wilson, Christina Hendricks, Dermot Mulroney, Sarah Hyland and Angela Kinsey, is expected to bow on demand later this year with a theatrical release date scheduled for late 2012.
