At the Family Television Awards, Ugly Betty and High School Musical continued to prove they are the heavyweights in a family-friendly entertainment.

The preteen smash hit High School Musical 2 took home the trophy for Best Movie Musical (as if there were another choice!). And its breakout heartthrob star Zac Efron won the honor of being named Best Actor for his role as Troy Bolton in the movie.

Meanwhile, America Ferrera easily won the Best Actress title for her role as the fashion-challenged fashion editor on ABC hit Ugly Betty. But the night was anything but ugly for that show, as it also took home the award for Best Comedy.

Other winners for the night included the new ABC series Pushing Daisies, sci-fi fave Heroes and FOX brainteaser Are You Smarter Than a Fifth Grader?

To see the highlights from the show, check out a special airing Dec. 27 on the CW at 9 p.m.
