'Gossip Girl' Star Chace Crawford Thanks Fans For Screaming

Teen Choice Award winner says, 'It was nice to accept the award straight from the fans.'

It seems like "Gossip Girl" star [movieperson id="405053"]Chace Crawford[/movieperson] is definitely having a moment — in fact, he had several at the Teen Choice Awards, which taped Sunday in Los Angeles and air Monday night (August 10) at 8 p.m. Not only is he on the Choice TV Show Drama, but Crawford was also named Choice TV Actor Drama. On top of all of that, he's also gearing up to star in the "Footloose" remake.

But what Crawford was most excited about was hearing the crowd scream for him as he accepted his award — which he equated to the way an athlete must feel while playing in front of huge crowds at stadiums and arenas.

"If I could do anything, it would be [becoming] a professional athlete," he told MTV News after winning his surfboards at the show.

But don't think that he's ready to give up acting anytime soon now that his fans have honored him for his work on the show, even if being there in front of all those people made him a bit nervous.

"Getting in front of a massive crowd is always a little nerve-wracking," he said. "It was nice to accept the award straight from the fans. It's those screams — you remember that stuff."

He continued that it was nice winning an award that is "talent oriented." "We got a bunch last year [too]," he said. "We're so blessed to have these fans."

Crawford did take a minute as well to give a shout out to the night's hosts, the Jonas Brothers, who in his professional acting opinion have what it takes to do more than just singing.

"They seem fun," he said. "They're crossing over, it looks like. They did good."
