The Twilight Saga has dominated the Teen Choice Awards, picking up 12 gongs - while fellow bloodsucker drama The Vampire Diaries picked up seven.

The Twilight movies won in the fantasy movie, villain and lip lock categories, while stars Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner took to the stage to pick up their awards.

R-Pattz picked up the gong for movie chemistry, for himself and Kristen Stewart, while Taylor won the award in the movie actor fantasy/sci-fi category.

New Moon was named best fantasy movie and Kristen won in the actress, fantasy category - and Kellan Lutz, Ashley Greene and Rachelle Lefevre won gongs for male scene stealer, female scene stealer and villain respectively.

Brit hunk R-Patz also won the movie actor award for his role in Remember Me. "It's great to win something outside of Twilight," he said.

It was a good night for vampire dramas, with TV show The Vampire Diaries also picking up seven of the surfboard-shaped trophies.

The ceremony was punctuated with several silly moments, including George Lopez appearing in drag as an older Kardashian sister, Betty White interrupting Sandra Bullock's acceptance speech for choice movie drama actress and host Katy Perry reliving high school days by dressing up as cheerleader, geek, hippie, prom queen and goth.

Katy hosted the show with Glee stars Kevin McHale, Chris Colfer, Mark Salling and Cory Monteith.

"Tonight is my chance to go back to high school - although this time people actually like me," she quipped.

There was also an on-stage appearance from David Beckham and his three sons. The footballer picked up his award for male athlete with the help of Brooklyn, Romeo and Cruz, before kicking a ball into the crowd.
