Vampire drama Twilight dominated the Teen Choice Awards in Los Angeles, scooping 11 prizes.

The film fought off competition to win awards including best drama, romance, movie villain and soundtrack.

Its young stars Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart also walked away with acting prizes in the drama category. The ceremony, which is now in its 11th year, honours celebrities in TV, film, music and sports, with winners voted by the public online.

More than 85 awards are handed out during the show, with such diverse categories as best "hissy fit", rumble and celebrity pet.

Teen star Miley Cyrus took home six awards, including wins for comedy TV show, actress and music single, while her father, country star Billy Ray Cyrus, also won the prize given for the best on-screen parent.


The Jonas Brothers, who hosted the event and kicked off the show with a performance, won five trophies including male red carpet icons and breakout TV show for Jonas.

TV drama Gossip Girl continued to pick up awards following its success last year with wins for TV drama and acting honours for its stars Chace Crawford, Leighton Meester and Ed Westwick.

Pop star Britney Spears was also honoured with the Ultimate Choice award and presented with a special blue surfboard-shaped trophy.

Other winners included Beyonce, American Idol finalist David Archuleta, Taylor Swift and Jason Mraz, who picked up two awards each in the music categories.
