'Harry Potter' Tops 'Twilight' at Teen Choice Awards

You can add another feat of magic to resume of Harry Potter: he beat "Twilight" at the Teen Choice Awards.

"Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1," last summer's penultimate installment in enormously profitable Potter series, was named Choice Movie, Sci-Fi/Fantasy at the Teen Choice Awards on Sunday night at the Gibson Amphitheater in Los Angeles, halting a seemingly unstoppable streak of the "Twilight" movies winning nearly every possible award at previous Teen Choice ceremonies.

This time around, the boy wizard movie beat the latest teen vampires 'n' werewolves movie, "The Twilight Saga: Eclipse," in several categories, also including Choice Movie Liplock (Daniel Radcliffe and Emma Watson's fantasy kiss beating out Kristen Stewart's smooches with both Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner), Choice Movie Villain (Tom Felton over Bryce Dallas Howard)

While the Potter saga won seven awards and received a special tribute at the end of the night, Harry's victory was not complete: among other "Twilight" triumphs, Lautner beat Radcliffe for Choice Movie Actor, Sci-Fi Fantasy.
