Ah the Teen Choice Awards ... it's like the equivalent of a bunch of giddy 14-year-old girls getting together for a sleepover and ranking the boys in their class from hottest to nottest. But it is an awards show that gives "the fan" a say in who deserves top honors, and while we will always make fun of the silly choices they make, we do agree that all movie fans (of all ages) should always have a say in what movies and performers they like the most.
The big news story out of this year's Teen Choice Awards isn't that Justin Bieber was, like, totally slimed, but that Harry Potter finally beat Twilight in categories the latter has owned ever since Bella and Edward shared their first on-screen kiss. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 took home awards for Choice Sci-Fi/Fantasy Movie (beating out The Twilight Saga: Eclipse), as well as Choice Actress, Sci-Fi/Fantasy (Emma Watson over Kristen Stewart) and Choice Liplock (Daniel Radcliffe and Emma Watson over K-Stew and R-Patz). Are Twi-hards not showing up to the polls figuring Twilight will just sweep like it does every year? Are the Teen Choice Awards mirroring our own politic climate? Do any of you actually care?
Other big awards went to Black Swan (hey, go teenagers for understanding that flick enough to throw it the Choice Drama award!), Bad Teacher (Choice Actress, Actor for Cameron Diaz and Justin Timberlake) and Choice Actor, Sci-Fi/Fantasy (Taylor Lautner, making sure Potter don't sweep his franchise under the rug).
