Not that there was much doubt on the topic, but the results of Sunday night's Teen Choice Awards made it crystal clear that Twilight is, well... the choice of teens (and more than a few adults!)

SPOILER ALERT: The ceremony was taped last night, BUT it doesn't air until tonight on Fox, so be forewarned if you still want surprises when you tune in.

Twilight, the first of four movies to be based on the hugely popular sparkly vampire books by Stephenie Meyer, was the night's biggest winner, raking in a total of 11 surfboard trophies, including Choice Movie Drama, Romance, Liplock, Rumble and Soundtrack.

Hollywood's hottest new actor — Twilight's Robert Pattinson — picked up two boards just for himself in the Choice Actor in a Movie Drama and (the night's biggest non-shocker) Choice Male Hottie.

His co-star Kristen Stewart can learn to surf on her trophy for Choice Actress in a Movie Drama.

And they weren't the only ones from the movie being honored. The often-shirtless Taylor Lautner repped for Team Jacob by winning the Male Movie Fresh Face award. And R-Pattz's Vampire "sister" Ashley Greene won the same award in the Female category. Additionally, Cam Gigandet was handed the Choice Movie Villain title.

Other big winners at the 11th annual awards were Miley Cyrus, who garnered six honors — Comedy TV Show and Actress in a TV Comedy for Hannah Montana; Actress in a Music/Dance Movie and Choice Hissy Fit for Hannah Montana: The Movie; Music Single for "The Climb" and Summer Song for "Before the Storm," which she shared with the evening's hosts, The Jonas Brothers.

Speaking of the JoBros, the pop star siblings earned four more surfboards to add to the one they shared with Miley.

On the TV side, the folks at Gossip Girl should be pleased, with Chace Crawford, Ed Westwick and Leighton Meester all earning honors.
