One hundred million voters can’t be wrong: Taylor Swift is
number one icon of the world’s teenagers, closely followed by Selena Gomez. Last
night (Sunday 7 August 2011) at the Teen Choice Awards, country singer Taylor
scooped six awards, including the Ultimate Choice Award, Choice Female Artist
and Choice Red Carpet Fashion Icon. Selena followed with five awards, including
Choice Female Hottie – while her (maybe ex) boyfriend Justin Bieber picked up four
accolades, including Choice Male Artist and Choice Twit.
The final two Harry Potter movies and their stars were
honoured with seven prizes, including awards for Emma Watson (three), Daniel
Radcliffe (two) and Tom Felton (one). And it was a big night for vampires, too,
with four awards for The Twilight Saga: Eclipse and five for TV drama The
Organised by Fox TV, the annual awards are based on
