Taylor Swift A Big Winner At Teen Choice Awards
Taylor Swift might be in her 20s now, but her appeal among 13-to-19-year-olds doesn't appear to be waning. The country-pop crossover sensation took all five categories in which she was nominated at Sunday's Teen Choice Awards, which aired on Fox. In her acceptance, Taylor expressed her gratitude to her fans for all their support.
Swift added that she's glad there's an awards event specifically for teens, because she really enjoys winning surfboard trophies. Taylor's wins include Choice Female Artist and Choice Female Country Artist, as well as Choice Movie Voice for her portrayal of Audrey in the animated feature "Dr. Seuss' The Lorax." Her songs "Spark Fly" and "Eyes Open" also took awards. Swift's five new surfboards give her a total of 20 Teen Choice awards, and makes her the most awarded female celebrity in the history of the event.
But other country nominees didn't fare quite as well. Lady Antebellum was in the running for Choice Music Group, which went to Selena Gomez & The Scene, while the Eli Young Band was up for Choice Music: Breakout Group but lost to the pop band One Direction. And Julianne Hough was a nominee for Choice Movie Breakout with"Rock Of Ages," but the nod went to Rihanna for "Battleship."
