OK, it's official: Teenagers really, really like vampires. The film series "The Twilight Saga" and  television show "The Vampire Diaries" won 12 and seven awards, respectively, at the 2010 Teen Choice Awards, which airs tonight at 8 p.m. EDT on Fox. "Twilight" star Robert Pattinson alone won four awards, including one for a non-bloodsucking role: choice drama movie actor for “Remember Me.” 

“It’s great to win something outside of ‘Twilight,’” said Pattinson. 


Aside from the pale undead, other winners include Taylor Swift, "Wizards of Waverly Place" star Selena Gomez, and Kourtney and Khloe Kardashian. The awards are hosted by singer Katy Perry and the male stars of "Glee": Chris Colfer, Kevin McHale, Cory Monteith and Mark Salling. Even the newly non-engaged Levi Johnston shows up
