Sure, it ain't Oscar material, but a certain vampire flick definitely delivered the goods at the Twilight Choice Teen Choice Awards.

Twilight sucked up 11 of the 12 surfboards it was up for, even smacking down the Academy Award-winning Slumdog Millionaire for Choice Drama. Pretty much everyone except the Twilight key grip carried home hardware, led by Robert Pattinson's four surfboards, including Choice Actor, Drama (yes, Kristen Stewart was Choice Actress) and Male Hottie.

But Pattz wasn't all that. He actually lost the overall trophy tally to Miley Cyrus, who accounted for a half-dozen Teen Choice Awards, including Choice Music/Dance Movie Actress and the oh-so-prestigious Hissy Fit.

Ms. Montana also had the honor of presenting the night's biggest award, the Ultimate Choice, to Britney Spears, declaring herself a "huge fan" of the Britster before bestowing the prize.

But wait, there's more...

The Jonas Brothers proved a triple threat, as hosts of the ceremony at Hollywood's Gibson Amphitheater, opening performers (with a shriek-inducing "Much Better") and one of the big winners, with a quintet of surfboards. (Little bro Frankie even rated a trophy for Breakout TV Star.)

Among the other top winners, fellow Disneyfied stars Zac Efron and Selena Gomez each tallied three awards, while Gossip Girl and Hanna Montana dominated the TV categories with four awards apiece, including Choice Drama and Comedy, respectively.

Also a special shout-out to E!'s own Chelsea Handler, whose Chelsea Lately beat back some major competition to win Choice Late-Night Show, and prompted her to crack, "I'm always honored to be included in anything that involves the Jonas Brothers and their rings."

In a new category, Ellen DeGeneres was named Choice Twit for her mad Twitter skills. We're sure she'll tweet about that…..or Kathy Griffin's date (Levi Johnston) later tonight.

With a whopping 88 surfboards presented (89 counting Britney's honorary prize), the ceremony will require some serious editing before airing in TV-friendly format Monday night at 8 p.m. on Fox.
