Robert Pattinson and his Twilight co-stars are celebrating after picking up more Teen Choice Awards.

The supernatural franchise has won 41 surfboard-shaped trophies since 2008, including two awards earned this year for the penultimate film instalment, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1.

R-Patz and co-stars Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner were on hand at Sunday's ceremony in Los Angeles to pick up this year's batch of gongs, which included the ultimate choice award - the teen-fuelled show's version of a lifetime achievement award.

"It's amazing you guys are still around and just as strong and just as loyal," Taylor said over screams from the crowd.

Kristen was honoured as the choice romance movie actress for Breaking Dawn - Part 1 and as choice female summer movie star for Snow White And The Huntsman.

Other multiple winners included the movie The Hunger Games, actress Emma Stone, TV show Pretty Little Liars, One Direction, The Vampire Diaries, and singers Justin Bieber and Taylor Swift, who picked up her 20th trophy - the most won by a female artist.

"I just feel so honoured that I get to have you guys in my life," a beaming Taylor told fans. She won five awards at the ceremony - choice female artist, female country artist, single by a female artist for Eyes Open, country song for Sparks Fly and choice movie voice for Dr Seuss' The Lorax.

Host and new X Factor judge Demi Lovato said 134 million votes were cast for the 14th annual awards, which honour film, TV, music and sports stars in such silly categories as choice hottie, villain, lip-lock and hissy fit.
