Guess which undead film franchise dominated the Teen Choice awards?

Hollywoodnews.com: The Teen Choice Awards will air tonight – Monday, Aug. 9 – at 8 p.m. on FOX, but the surfboard-shaped trophies were handed out yesterday during a live ceremony hosted by pop diva Katy Perry. So if you don’t want to know who went home a winner, skip to another story!
It comes as no surprise that the undead lovers of “Twilight” sucked the Teen Choice Awards dry, claiming 12 trophies including Fantasy Movie and Villain.
“This is what this night is all about. Vampires,” Perry reportedly told the raucous crowd, according to the AP.
The “Twilight” vamps weren’t the only blood-sucking winners. “The Vampire Diaries” claimed an additional seven awards, making it a big night for the garlic haters.
“Twilight” hunks Taylor Lautner and Robert Pattinson were on hand to accept their awards. Pattinson, in fact, made four trips to the stage – winning the Drama: Actor award for his turn in “Remember Me.”
“It’s great to win something outside of ‘Twilight,’” he joked.
The Teen Choice Awards 2010 will be televised on FOX. For more information, visit www.teenchoiceawards.com.
