"Twilight" stars Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner were on hand to pick up this year's batch of boards, as well as the ultimate choice award, the teen-fueled show's version of a lifetime achievement award.

"It's amazing you guys are still around and just as strong and just as loyal," Lautner said over screams from the crowd.

Stewart was honored as the choice romance movie actress and as choice female summer movie star for "Snow White & the Huntsman."

Other multiple winners included "The Hunger Games," Emma Stone, 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," a beaming Swift said.

Teen Choice Awards host and new "The X Factor" judge Demi Lovato said 134 million votes were cast for the 14th annual awards, which honor film, TV, music and sports stars in such silly categories as choice hottie, villain, liplock and hissy fit.

"Are there even that many teens?" asked ceremony co-host and "Glee" actor Kevin McHale.

Bieber won his 12th trophy and performed his tune "Boyfriend," while his girlfriend and birthday girl Selena Gomez, who won the choice music group trophy, was presented with a cake and a rendition of "Happy Birthday" from the crowd inside the Gibson Amphitheatre.

Other winners on hand to accept their awards included Ellen DeGeneres for choice comedian, Zac Efron for choice drama actor and drama movie for "The Lucky One" and Jonah Hill for choice comedy movie for "21 Jump Street."

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 cowrote and executive produced the movie.

The Hollywood frolic was televised live on Fox just two days after the midnight massacre at a Colorado movie theater showing "The Dark Knight Rises," killing 12 and injuring 58. The movie wasn't up for any awards nor was there any reference to the tragedy during the show.

The Teen Choice Awards also aired in the wake of a fog machine malfunction that forced the evacuation the night before of a Hollywood nightclub that hosted 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.
