UNIVERSAL CITY, California — The sky is blue. Water is wet. And once again, at Sunday’s taping of the 2009 Teen Choice Awards , mankind was reminded of one more indisputable fact: Teens love “Twilight.”
“All the wins were incredible,” marveled Ashley Greene, moments after the show ended and the stars of the saga walked out with 11 awards. “It’s such a bizarre thing to be invited — and then to clean up the way we did? Our fans are indescribable — it’s amazing, who does that? Who gets to be a part of that? It’s a blast, and it was a really cool show.”
Surfboard awards were handed out to Greene and friends for Choice Movie: Drama, Romance, Actor (Robert Pattinson), Actress (Kristen Stewart), Villain (Cam Gigandet), Fresh Face Female (Greene), Fresh Face Male (Taylor Lautner), Liplock (Stewart and Pattinson) and Rumble (Pattinson and Gigandet). Another highlight came when RPattz walked onstage to accept his Choice Male Hottie prize alongside female winner Megan Fox. Fans can see the whole thing when the show airs Monday evening (August 10) on Fox.
“It was fantastic, but we couldn’t hear anything that anybody was saying,” Jackson Rathbone said of the moment when the whole cast went onstage together. “When Taylor was talking, when Rob was talking, when Catherine [Hardwicke] was talking, we were all looking at each other, like, ’Can you hear that?’ I didn’t know what was going on.”
“I’m utterly amazed; it’s so exciting how many people love the movie,” Justin Chon gushed on the red carpet before the event. But all these months after the cast’s memorable MTV Movie Awards sweep, he said receiving accolades still hasn’t gotten old. “I don’t think you ever get used to it. It’s always a new experience at every awards show; it’s for a different demographic. If it speaks to teens, that’s great.”
“It never gets old,” Kellan Lutz agreed, thinking about the evening’s events. “Twelve noms? That’s amazing. … Rob’s here, Jackson’s here. Summit’s brilliant at casting people with awesome hair and full lips.
“It’s an awesome story about forbidden love,” Lutz added, getting serious for a moment. “You can’t go wrong with that.”
As Twilighters know, all the kids in Forks love to go surfing at La Push beach — otherwise known as the ’hood of Mr. Jacob Black. But despite the 11 surfboards that “Twilight” won at the Teen Choice Awards, Lautner insisted that he won’t be taking any of the trophies out for a test drive.
“I’m not the best surfer, so that might not be a good idea,” he laughed. “Yeah, I’ve got to do some practice.”
Check out everything we’ve got on “Twilight.”
