Los Angeles – Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort of The Fault in Our Stars are riding a victorious wave at the Teen Choice Awards.

The pair picked up several prizes in yesterday’s fan-favourite extravaganza, including choice drama movie actor and breakout movie star for Elgort and choice drama and action movie actress for Divergent star Woodley.

The pair was also awarded the surfboard-shaped trophy for choice lip-lock for their Fault in Our Stars smooch.

“I don’t surf or anything, so I guess I’m gonna put this on my wall,” said Elgort of the unique prize.

Demi Lovato kicked off the Teen Choice Awards with a performance and a win. After belting out her tune Really Don’t Care, the singer-actress rode off with the award for choice summer song.

“I want you guys to know that instead of just getting up here and saying a speech, every single one of you deserves to have a happy and incredible life, so be the best you can be in everything because your dreams can come true if you work hard for them,” Lovato told the roaring crowd of teenagers.

Other winners on hand to claim their trophies included Pretty Little Liars star Lucy Hale as choice drama TV show actress, The Hunger Games co-star Josh Hutcherson as choice sci-fi/fantasy movie actor and Bethany Mota and Tyler Oakley as choice female and male web stars.

“You’re all amazing,” said Mota, echoing winners’ motivational acceptance speeches. “You all have the potential to be what you wanna be.”

Teen Choice co-hosts Tyler Posey of Teen Wolf and Sarah Hyland of Modern Family said 165 million votes were cast for the 16th annual awards, which honour movies, television, music, comedy, sports, fashion and web stars in such silly categories as choice hottie, smile and villain.

A recent water main break flooded the Teen Choice Awards’ original venue at University of California Los Angeles’ Pauley Pavilion and the show was hastily moved across town to the Shrine Auditorium adjacent to the University of Southern California campus.
