2012 Teen Choice Awards; Twilight & Taylor Swift among Big Winners

The stars of “The Twilight Saga” turned out to be big winners of the night Sunday, taking home ultimate choice, the Teen Choice Awards’ lifetime achievement honor. The hit movie series has won a whopping 41 Teen Choice trophies since the first film arrived in 2008.

The Teen Choice Awards got under way with a star-studded red carpet followed by a slew of awards, which were handed out at the Gibson Amphitheater in Los Angeles.

The teen-fueled ceremony honors film, TV, music and sports stars in such categories as choice hottie, villain, liplock and hissy fit. A record 134 million votes were cast this year.

Going into the 14th annual ceremony, Kristen Stewart’s “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1” and “Snow White and the Huntsman” both led the nominees with seven nods a piece.

Actors Taylor Lautner, Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson were all on hand Sunday to accept their awards. Lautner told the crowd, “We owe everything to you guys,” adding, “It’s amazing you guys are still around and just as strong and just as loyal.” Stewart also thanked the fans for the continued support of the vampire series. Pattinson did the same, and then gave his surfboard to the audience. His co-star and real-life gal pal, Stewart, followed suit.

Stewart also walked away with choice romance movie actress, as well as choice female actress of the summer for her role in “Snow White and the Huntsman.”

Other multiple winners included “The Hunger Games,” boy band One Direction, “The Vampire Diaries,” Justin Bieber and Taylor Swift, who picked up her 20th trophy, the most ever won by a female artist.

“I just feel so honored that I get to have you guys in my life,” Swift said.

The first award of the night, choice comedian, went to Ellen DeGeneres. After accepting her surfboard-shaped trophy, she honored pint-sized stars, Sophia Grace and Rosie, with the choice Web award.

Other winners included Zac Efron for choice actor in a drama and Michael Trevino for choice male TV scene stealer. In the movie category, “21 Jump Street” scored choice comedy. Hill, who lost the supporting actor Oscar earlier this year to Christopher Plummer, used his acceptance speech to poke fun at the 82-year-old “Beginners” co-star. “I’d just like to point out that he’s not nominated for anything tonight,” joked Hill, who co-wrote and executive produced the movie.

Emma Stone, meanwhile, received both the choice comedy actress award for “Crazy, Stupid, Love” and choice drama actress for “The Help.”

When Selena Gomez picked up the choice music group award for her band, Selena Gomez and the Scene, the crowd sang her a warm “Happy Birthday.” Gomez, who was sitting in the audience next to her beau Justin Bieber, turned 20 on Sunday, July 22.

This year’s choice hottie awards went to Miley Cyrus and Ian Somerhalder. Cyrus wasn’t there to accept the honor, but Somerhalder thanked fans on her behalf.

The event kicked off with an introduction by the ceremony’s co-hosts: “The X Factor” judge Demi Lovato and “Glee” co-star Kevin McHale.

Lovato’s “X-Factor” co-judges appeared in taped segments. Simon Cowell joked in his typical way, calling Lovato a brat and describing her as irritating, annoying and said she had bad manners.

Bieber served as one of the show’s musical performers, along with Carly Rae Jepsen, Flo Rida and No Doubt. DJ Pauly D of “Jersey Shore” was on hand as the house DJ.

The Hollywood frolic comes two days after the midnight massacre at a Colorado movie theater showing “The Dark Knight Rises,” killing 12 and injuring 58. Show organizers say that “The Dark Knight Rises” was not up for any Teen Choice awards this year nor was any reference to the tragedy  during the show.

The show also aired in the wake of a fog machine malfunction that forced the evacuation of a Hollywood nightclub Saturday night hosting a Teen Choice Awards pre-party featuring the boy band Midnight Red. Los Angeles Fire department spokesman Brian Humphrey said six people, ages 8 to 20 years old, were taken to the hospital for problems ranging from headaches, dizziness, shortness of breath and cryogenic burns.

Bieber falls into glass wall during concert, suffers concussion

Canadian pop star Justin Bieber ran headlong into trouble on a European promotional tour on Thursday, knocking himself out backstage in Paris and dealing with a crushing crowd in Norway that left some fans injured one day earlier.

Thursday’s incident occurred after the singer fell into a glass wall during an intimate concert in Paris. Bieber told celebrity news website TMZ.com he felt lightheaded but was able to perform his last song before going backstage and passing out for 15 seconds.

TMZ posted an audio clip of its conversation with the pop sensation in which he said doctors told him he suffered a concussion and ordered him to relax. The singer quickly posted on Twitter that he was doing well, joking about the incident and saying “gotta laugh at yourself sometimes.”

The concussion comes one day after Bieber, on a brief tour of major European cities to promote upcoming album “Believe,” was met with a crush of fans before a free concert in Oslo leading to reports of dozens of young girls being injured.

Bieber’s record label, Universal Music, said in a statement to celebrity site E! Online on Thursday that it “regrets strongly that some of those who were [at the] Justin concert had a bad experience.”

A label executive said “fortunately no one was seriously injured,” and added that Bieber wanted to return to Norway and perform a future concert there.

Calls and e-mails to Bieber’s representatives were not immediately returned.

On Sunday, Justin Bieber’s squeaky-clean reputation took a hit as the singer allegedly launched into a physical altercation with a paparazzo.

NBC News correspondent Kristen Dahlgren delivered the details on TODAY Monday morning;

Bieber and girlfriend Selena Gomez were said to be leaving a shopping center when the trouble began. Witnesses claim they saw the teen idol rush from a van for a face-to-face confrontation with a photographer who’d been seen taking photos of the young couple.
