The question now is, can Justin keep up with the Jonases?

Hot on the trail of a certain hunky pop star, the Jonas Brothers took home six ceremonial surfboards Sunday at the 10th annual Teen Choice Awards, aka TC08, giving the fraternal rockers just 15 more to go until they match Justin Timberlake's grand total of 21 collected over the last decade.

More than 30 million Internet-savvy youngsters, none of whom had to actually be of an age ending in "teen" to vote online, deemed the dapper trio Choice Breakout Band, Male Hotties and Male Red Carpet Icons, as well as the purveyors of the Choice Single (beating out Timberlake), Summer Single and Love Song (all for "When You Look Me in the Eyes").

Joe, Nick and Kevin's tally was matched only by the CW's teen-soap-with-claws, Gossip Girl, which also notched six wins (on a bedpost, naturally): Choice TV Drama, Breakout Show, breakout acting nods for Chace Crawford and Blake Lively and top villain for the diabolical Ed Westwick.

"I feel like I'm still a teenager because I'm perpetually in high school," Crawford, 23, said backstage.

And, because today's youth has a lot of opinions, the honors bestowed upon the genetically blessed youngsters mentioned above were only the tip of the iceberg at the incredibly thorough (reality dance show is a category unto itself) kudosfest, which honors "choice" talent from the worlds of film, TV, music, comedy, sports and fashion.

Teen Choice Awards host Miley Cyrus was no slouch, toting home three of the show's unwieldy marks of distinction after opening the ceremony at Universal Studios' Gibson Amphitheatre with a performance of her new hit single "7 Things."

The 15-year-old queen o' the teens also scored bragging rights tonight when she and pal Mandy Jiroux took on Adam Sevani and Jon Chu's ACDC troupe in a dance-off. Judge Fergie, going largely by the audience's reaction, named M&M Cru the winner.

A quick testament to just how heavy those surfboards are: David Beckham, named Choice Male Athlete, brought sons Cruz, Romeo and Brooklyn onstage to help him haul his board away. (Admittedly, he could have brought them up because they made for an enchanting photo op in their matching yellow shirts.)

Will Smith, an elder statesman at these types of events, also popped up onstage three times, first to collect Hancock's Choice Action-Adventure Movie surfboard, and twice in honor of I Am Legend. The apocalyptic thriller was named top horror flick and Smith won for best actor in that genre. (He left sons Trey and Jaden sitting in the audience, however.)

Meanwhile, Fox, which will air the Teen Choice Awards Monday at 8 p.m. ET/PT, continued to feed the beast: Lauren Conrad was named Choice Female Reality Star for the third year in a row.
