Avengers: Endgame and Riverdale were the night's biggest winners at the 2019 Teen Choice Awards, which aired last night (August 11th) on Fox. The evening celebrated the best of music, film, the internet, television and more, according to teenagers who vote. Instead of snagging statuettes though, winners land surfboards, because #teens.
Pretty Little Liars star Lucy Hale and YouTube sensation David Dobrik took on hosting duties, and set the fun tone for an upbeat, empowering celebration with 10,000 teen revelers on the beach and millions watching on TV and online.
The CW's Riverdale took home the award for Choice Drama TV show, while Cole Sprouse and Lili Reinhart took home the award for Choice Drama TV actor and actress respectively for their work on the show. They also snagged Choice Ship for their mysterious are-they-or-aren’t-they-dating-anymore romance.
Netflix's Stranger Things also won big, snagging Choice Summer TV Show, and Summer TV Actor and Actress for Noah Schnapp and Millie Bobby Brown, respectively.
On the movie side, Avengers: Endgame took home the trophy for Choice Action Movie.
Another big winner was Taylor Swift, who took the first-ever Icon Award and gave fans a pep talk about gender equality, making mistakes, the crazy world we live in, and the joys of cute kitties. Swift, per usual, saved her major scoop for the end, telling viewers that they can expect a new single, “Lover,” from her on Friday, August 16th.
The Jonas Brothers, who snagged the Decade Award, also brought the pep rally spirit and reminded viewers that they were bullied once too … and that it does get better.
One Republic performed “Counting Stars” and “Rescue Me.”
Monsta X rocked “Who Do U Love?”
CNCO hit the stage with “Pretend.”
Jordan McGraw and Sarah Hyland brought their collaboration “Met at a Party” to the stage.
Blanco Brown showed the kids how to do “The Git Up.”
Mabel said just don’t bother, “Don’t Call Me Up.”

["Thank you, my fellow millenials. Thank you. Thank you for everyone who voted for Crazy Rich Asians. I'm accepting this on behalf of Awkwafina, Michelle Yeoh, Constance Wu, Henry Golding, Jemma Chan, everybody, Jimmy, Nico, Ronnie, everybody in our What's App Crazy Rich Asian chat. Director Jon Chu, creator Kevin Kwan, and I've been very fortunate to be a part of a lot of movies in my career. But Crazy Rich Asians is by far the most important. You know why? Because representation matters. Diversity is what makes America great. It is important for us to see people who look like us on-screen and as Jon Chu says, it's not a movie, it's a movement. Thank you so much. Love you, guys."] SOUNDCUE (1:02 OC: . . .Love you, guys.)
In clip two, Jack Black introduces the Jonas Brothers.
["Today, we're celebrating over a decade of Nick, Joe, and Kevin absolutely killing it. I mean, these guys are like superheroes, right? Sure, they're awesome and gifted musicians, but really, their superpower is their good looks. I mean, I can sing. I can sing my butt off. But these guys were hit hard with the handsome stick. These are some striking gentlemen. And how about that song, Sucker? Did you know that Sucker debuted at number one on the Billboard Hot 100? That is hot."] SOUNDCUE (:40 OC: . . .That is hot.)
In clip three, Joe Jonas accepts the Choice Decade Award.

In clip four, Kevin Jonas accepts the Choice Decade Award.

But at the same time, I want on my very first acting audition. It was for an AT&T advertisement. And then they hired me because they liked my frosted tips. The same haircut that got me called… is was what started my actual career, and it's also the reason I am standing on the stage receiving this award today today."] SOUNDCUE (:45 OC: . . .this award today today.)

(Lucy) Of course it is Teen Choice 2019, and we thought we would go pretty big this year.(David) That's right, we are making history for the first time ever, Teen Choice is at the beach.

In clip seven, Nick Jonas accepts the Choice Decade Award.
["Something strange happened to me at school as well. I also got bullied but not by the other students, by my teachers. I love music and at an early age, I was lucky enough to land a role performing in Broadway shows. So my teachers felt it was their job to keep me in my place by singling me out and giving me a bit harsher treatment than everyone else. I still remember one birthday in particular, I was quite young, very excited as we all get on my birthdays. My teacher yelled at me, saying, stop drawing attention to yourself. I had enough self doubt as it was, I did not need to be told how little I really was. But if I had stopped what I was doing, because at that moment, or any of the other things that happened in school, I would not be here today accepting this award."] SOUNDCUE (:47 OC: . . .today accepting this award.)
In clip eight, Noah Centineo accepts the Award for Choice Comedy Movie Actor.

You know, I never plan these, like, there's a teleprompter in the back and I never really know what to say. But right now I got to think Netflix, Awesomeness, Matt Kaplan, Robert Marshall, Laura Marano, you are amazing, Odysseus. You know, I really want to honor all the kids out there that are bullied, you know, that have it hard, and come from a really messed up situation. I just love you guys and you can't let anyone tell you you can't do anything. You cannot. If I am from south Florida, I made it here. You can come too."] SOUNDCUE (1:07 OC: . . .You can come too.)
In clip nine, Pro skateboarder Sky Brown gives her fellow tweens and teens a message of empowerment.

Not only winning the World Cup with her amazing teammates, right? But while they were winning the World Cup, they were also taking a historic stand in terms of gender equality, gender pay gaps. Please, please, please support her and her teammates because this is not over yet. It's not resolved. Get online, talk about it, let people know how you feel about it because what happened to them is unfair. It's happening everywhere, and they are heroes and icons for standing up."] SOUNDCUE (:54 OC: . . .and icons for standing up.)
In clip thirteen, Taylor Swift accepts the Icon Award 2.
["Second of all, I want to just shout out whoever it was at the Teen Choice Awards who decided to put the itty bitty pretty kitty committee on this surfboard.
