2011 Teen Choice Awards: Vampires Still Rule, Turns Out
Being a twenty-something watching the Teen Choice Awards is like intruding in your little sister's party. You're lucky to be let in, but you don't understand most of what's going on.

Like, why did Robert Pattinson still win the Choice Vampire award? I thought Twilight was so five minutes ago? (For now, at least, since the first Breaking Dawn movie has yet to come out, and I haven't seen frantic Twilight fans go out on the streets in ages.) And the fact that teenagers picked him rather than, say, True Blood's Alexander Skarsgard or The Vampire Diaries' Ian Somerhalder...

Then again, it wasn't a bad night for TVD, as the show scooped five awards, including a sweep of the Fantasy/Sci-Fi TV category. It's pretty much a repeat of last year's Teen Choice Awards, really, except for the fact that Paul Wesley did not win; Ian did.

Still on the TV side of things, Glee also pulled off an unsurprising big win, with three awards, including Choice TV Breakout Star for Darren Criss. (Interestingly, Chord Overstreet was with the cast when they accepted their awards.) Gossip Girl, NCIS: Los Angeles and Pretty Little Liars also won big in their categories.

Elsewhere, Taylor Swift was given the Ultimate Choice Award, apart from winning a bunch of music categories. Same goes for tween it couple Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez, who won a bunch of music and TV awards (Selena for The Wizards of Waverly Place, Justin for his role on CSI -- yes, apparently he's more evil than Sue Sylvester). The Harry Potter franchise got a lovely, albeit rushed, send-off -- at least it beat Twilight this year numbers-wise -- while Demi Lovato continued her comeback with the Choice Inspire Award.
