Boy band One Direction have landed eight Teen Choice awards, bringing their “lifetime” total to 23.
The night will also be packed with varoius performances by top stars, so it is sure to be a show that fans will not want to miss. She took home the award for “Choice TV Summer Star: Female” for her sassy role as Hanna in the ABC Family drama.
Walker was then honored posthumously as Choice Movie Actor Action/Adventure. She cracks a few jokes at the expense of adults everywhere, and concludes with “I didn’t used to feel chosen”, explaining that the stuff that makes you weird in adolescence is the same stuff that makes you great as an adult. You should be proud of who you are. Finally DeGeneres finished up her speech by pointing out that it was the seventh anniversary of her wedding and wishing her wife a happy anniversary.
On the small screen, numerous actresses have also been nominated, with Hayden Panettiere, Kerry Washington, Lucy Hale, Shay Mitchell and Maia Mitchell all being given nods.

Empire stars Jussie Smollett and Bryshere “Yazz” Gray performed “You’re So attractive”, a tune from the hit TV show’s first season, and, in a surprise cameo, Sidibe joined them mid-song. With a blend of her signature humor and a more serious tone, the comedian showcased just how powerful her words really are.

DeGeneres’ touching speech was a nod to her struggle to come out as gay in the public eye. “It’s going to be fun”. “Paul Walker is her in spirit with us”, said the co-producer of the latest Fast and Furious installment.
