Check out the full list of winners here!
1. No Doubt Takes the Stage
Can you believe No Doubt have been together since 1986? Wowzers! Their first brand new, non-compilation album in eleven years is due out in September, and last night, we got a rockin’ performance of their new single, “Settle Down. Sure, we may not have been wild about Gwen Stefani’s awards show look, but they’ve still got it!
2. The Cast of Twilight Gives Back
Unsurprisingly, Twilight: Breaking Dawn – Part 1 won big last night; it snagged the awards for Choice Movie Romance, Choice Movie Actress, and Choice Movie Scene Stealer – Female, as well as taking the Ultimate Choice award for the whole Twilight Saga. Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, and Taylor Lautner were all on hand to accept the Ultimate Choice Award—where RPatz did something unprecedented: He gave his surfboard to the audience. Kristen followed suit, but it looks like Taylor was a little too attached to his board to give it up. Fun fact: The Twilight Saga has won a whopping 41 awards of the course of its run.
3. Happy 20th Birthday, Selena Gomez!
Anyone who has ever had a restaurant full of people sing “Happy Birthday” to them has experienced that feeling of desperately wishing for a hole to open up in the floor and swallow you so as to save you from the embarrassment. We can only imagine that what Selena Gomez must have been feeling when the entire awards show audience sang to her was something like the restaurant singing experience multiplied by eight million. Kind of sucks turning 20 on the night of a big awards show when you’re a star, doesn’t it?
