TCA 2009: “Twilight” takes the bite with 11 Awards
The vampire drama Twilight drove a stake through the 11th annual Teen Choice 2009 awards on Sunday, winning 11 trophies in a ceremony also notable for its celebration of musical acts new and not-so-new.
Audience members thirsting for a glimpse of the Twilight stars were not disappointed, as the film won best drama as well as acting awards for leads Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart and supporting stars Cam Gigandet, Ashley Greene and Taylor Lautner.
Pattinson was also named Choice Male Hottie. “I really appreciate it. I have to say, the hottest teens of the year are Twilight fans!” he told the crowd during the taped event, which airs Monday night on FOX.
