One TCA ended last July 31 with Glee dominating the stage with their three wins, and just this Sunday, the Glee boys were back for another TCA – this time to co-host the event with the lovely Katy Perry.
While the Television Critics Association awards was conquered by a musical fever, the Teen Choice Awards got a vampire invasion as the Twilight series (Eclipse and New Moon) and the Vampire Diaries both surfed home with 12 and 7 trophies for movie and TV, respectively.
After more than 85 million votes cast from the multitude of teens from all over the world (I’m sure at least one of those belongs to you and at least 30 of those came from me), the recipients of Hollywood’s coolest summer surfboards were announced at the Gibson Amphitheater in Los Angeles last August 8.
For the past few months, you’ve made your choice, you’ve given your stand as to who deserves the win more for each category. Now it’s time to see which stars and films rocked more teens’ worlds this year. So, did your movie bets get a cute blue surfboard? Scroll down and find out!
I bet that Kick Ass would win this category for its many action scenes that, well… kicked ass, but I guess Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law still proved that being a detective (and a detective’s assistant) is much more adventurous and is heavier on the action.
And my dear bet, Russell Crowe, didn’t get a surfboard for this category. Oh well, Channing Tatum was great too anyway on G.I. Joe. It’s just that Robin Hood is still a legendary character filled with action and adventure, and Russell Crowe showed us that in his performance. Careful Captain Duke, we all know how skilled Robin Hood is when it comes to you know, stealing.
Finally! A bet of mine that won! Well, as I’ve said, Rachel McAdams is a strong contender for this category because she really delivered a superb performance of being a spy in this thrilling film.
The concept of Pandora is already an amazing factor in determining its victory for this category. It was a very rich sci-fi idea. Well, there must be a reason why it emerged as the highest top-grossing film of all time, right?
Too bad Ironman Robert Downey Jr. didn’t win, but Sam Worthington proves that he can beat veteran actors such as RDJ once in a while, especially when he’s the lead actor of one of the crowd’s all-time favorite sci-fi films.
And Avatar won it all for the sci-fi category, with this last one awarded to the beautiful blue Neytiri. I would say blonde or brunette, but well, we are talking Pandora, so blue is the color.
And I thought Percy Jackson vs. Luke would win. Seriously when you’re shooting water-turned-tornado powers at your enemy during a fight, it’s super cool! Well, I personally think, despite my love for Alice in Wonderland, that the fight between Alice and the Jabberwocky wasn’t really that amazing, but I guess it blew some people away.
We know that the movie wasn’t exactly that great (read: 19% in Rottentomatoes) because it was too cheesy and all that, but I guess Miley Cyrus seemed pretty natural getting into that hissy fit although that still doesn’t make up for her should I say, mediocre acting.
A very touching film that will move anyone to tears. This is probably the most deserving award in the movies section. If only I could given ten thumbs up, I probably would have but since I only have two thumbs, so I guess I should just stick with that. But, really, a great, great film. If you haven’t watched it, you’re missing half of your life.
I haven’t watched the film, so I can’t commend nor bash him with his performance. Was he really that good? Because up until now, I am still not convinced with his acting in the Twilight series although I must admit, I really like his performance on Harry Potter: The Goblet of Fire as Cedric. S0, was he that good that he beat Jake Gyllenhaal in Brothers?
Well, what can I say? It’s Sandra Bullock, one of the most talented actresses I know, really. She always gives her all when she acts. Very convincing and she will really make you feel whatever you’re supposed to feel – make you cry in a drama and make you laugh in a comedy. Amazing!
I love the casting here, but I personally don’t think that this is better than The Proposal, which was one hell of a laugh trip and at the same time, professional (I mean that kind of comedy that’s not only hilarious because of some stupid joke). I guess what made Valentine’s Day the top choice for this category was that it captured the comedy in various romantic situations.
This guy has always been a hilarious one! No surprise about this win. He’s just a natural. That 70’s Show, anyone?
Last award to go before the Valentine’s Day gets a complete collection of this year’s romantic comedy awards. Too bad they’re up against Sandra Bullock who is just simply effortlessly hilarious in The Proposal. How can you compete with such a talent who has ceaselessly amazed the world with her performance?
What happens when you sleep? I don’t wanna know. This movie’s scary as hell! It really freaked me out! It’s like sleep… if you dare. So, yeah, the surfboard’s all yours.
This movie’s just a fantastic one, with Teddy Daniels (Leonardo DiCaprio) spinning your mind scene by scene. Real thriller. Super deserving of this award!
Well, Megan Fox is an actress, but she’s not really in that level where you’ll call her an effective one. At least not yet, I hope. So, I’m not totally convinced that people voted for her because she acted well in Jennifer’s Body, but I would like to think that they voted for her because they thought she was hot.
And nothing beats a disastrous formal date of two of the funniest people in the entertainment business! Although I thought Get Him to the Greek was a strong contender, but it looks like a date night gone wrong still proved to be funnier.
Can’t resist the Tina Fey comedic charm now, can we? She’s always an interesting character to watch, and Date Night is just the perfect film. Well, and of course partnering with Steve Carell, I think that doubles the fun.
Well, real couples show more intimacy, right? And if you’ve been working together on a cheesy love story for three sequels and living a real-life love story yourself for the rest of your non-filming days, you’d probably have mastered how to give that perfect kiss as a couple. So, Kristen and Rob winning these is super expected from everyone who knows them.
When a film gets a 99% rating in RottenTomatoes, it’s probably because almost all who watched it liked it, which means that if you put it in a category in a contest where people vote, it’s most probably, if not certain, that it’ll win. But, it’s deserving, really. Toy Story 3 is a film that moved the audience at certain parts and at the same time, kept all of us amused with fun.
Not just because there are vampires in the film means it’s already an amazing take on fantasy. It may be the first vampire film that became a phenomenon, but I am pretty sure Twilight isn’t the first vampire movie to be shown (think those about Dracula). And besides, the effects weren’t even that cool for a fantasy. Like seriously, the sparkly skin and the super speed and super strength (hello Incredibles?)? I don’t know. I’m not that convinced of its awesomeness.
Looks like Team Jacob really worked hard on bringing down Team Edward this time. The vampire just lost his surfboard to a wolf. Not sucking enough blood now, are we? Don’t worry. You got one anyway for another category.
I wouldn’t want to think that this was a landslide win for Bella, but I think that’s what happened. She has been a worldwide sensation ever since Twilight came out, and it seems that whenever she’s part of some awards competition, she emerges most of the time, if not always, as the winner. Well, at least that excludes the “professional” or “formal” awarding ceremonies where the results are given by critics or movie experts.
Victoria, Victoria, Victoria… she may not be the most badass villain that there is, but she’s definitely one that consistently makes her “villain-ness” known, always hunting, or I should say, sniffing for human blood. She’s just everywhere. Even her own vampire kin fears her (or maybe it’s just Edward’s family). Fierce!
This movie was certainly his big break but his performance is certainly not one that is worth praising. He may look very comfortable with his co-star (well duh, it’s his real-life sweetheart, he should be very comfortable by now), his acting looked rather dull or stiff. Not really that fun to watch. It just didn’t give Nicholas Sparks’ novel-turned-movie enough justice.
This is a shocker, really, considering that Taylor did get a lot of negative comments on her first debut into film from numerous critics after Valentine’s Day was released. Although I am a Taylor Swift fan, I think she should just stick with the music industry. Acting… is probably not her thing. Or maybe she just needs more development. Or, yeah, just make more music.
When a hot, sexy vampire is in the scene, how can you not get distracted? And even if he’s not the main star, you’d constantly switch your gaze from Rob to him, from Taylor to him (sounds like the Old Spice commercial), and how you’d wish he had more scenes, so you can stare at him more.
Who doesn’t love Alice Cullen? I know I do! She’s super cool, like the vampire with the best power and the coolest hair. And she looks super calm and sweet that you’d probably forget Bella for a while. But seriously, why is she partnered with Jasper? I know vampires are supposed to be pale, but Jasper is freakishly freaky, and Alice looks… normal and energetic.
LOL – both for their dance on the movie and for their bumping butts onstage during the awards. Love these gals!
Is this even a surprise? I don’t think so. What’s going to be a surprise is when they get beaten in a competition whose decision of winners lie on the hands of voters (read: fans). Everywhere you go, at least half of the population is gaga for this series.
Since Eclipse won ‘Summer Movie’ this year, it follows that its lead actors should win the ‘Summer Stars’ award. No shocker, really.
And there you go – the winners of 2010 Teen Choice Awards for Movies. Congratulations to all who brought home surfboards! You earned that (or those for those who won multiple times)! Good job everyone!
Tomorrow: the list of the winners of 2010 Teen Choice Awards for TV.
See if your favorite TV stars and shows surfed home with a brand new surfboard last Sunday.
