One Tree Hill actress Sophia Bush, dominated this year’s Teen Choice Awards, taking home a total of three awards: Choice Breakout Female in a Movie, Choice Actress in a Horror/Thriller Movie for The Hitcher, and Choice Actress in Comedy Movie for John Tucker Must Die.
This is not the first time Sophia Bush has graced the teen-centered awards ceremony. She was first nominated for a Teen Choice award in 2005, for her portrayal of Brooke Davis on the CW’s One Tree Hill. She was again nominated for the role the following year, but failed to capture the award on both occasions. This year, she did not receive a nomination for the series.
Nevertheless, earning three awards in one night placed her in the same level as the Disney blockbuster, Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End, which slew its competitors by winning the award for Choice Action Adventure Movie.
Other winners that night include the television movie High School Musical 2, Zac Efron, Vanessa Anne Hudgens, comedian Dane Cook, Avril Lavigne, Justin Timberlake and Fergie, who gave the most emotional acceptance speech of the night.
“This award isn’t paid for. This award isn’t traded for favors,” Fergie said, while tearing up. “This is picked by you.”
The awards are selected by the teen-voting public, with the winners receiving surfboards instead of statuettes.
The event was hosted by Hilary Duff (Lizzie McGuire) and Nick Cannon, and was telecast on August 26, Sunday, from the Gibson Amphitheater at Universal Studios Hollywood. In less than two hours, presenters rapidly went through 30 categories. The show also featured musical performances from such artists as Shop Boyz and American Idol winner Kelly Clarkson.
The biggest highlight of the night was when 53-year-old John Travolta took to the stage to accept the award for Choice Summer Comedy/Musical Movie for Hairspray, wherein he played Edna Turnblad.
Meanwhile, fans of Sophia Bush can catch her again on the small screen when One Tree Hill returns for its fifth season next year.
