Most teens aren’t old enough to vote in U.S. elections or buy a drink, but that doesn’t mean they don’t have as much power (if not more) as the rest of us in determining what’s hot and what’s not in pop culture.
Last night, America’s teens had a chance to choose their absolute faves in movies, music, TV, and the internet — forget what the critics have to say — for the 2019 Teen Choice Awards on Fox.
Marvel came away as the clear winner of the evening. Avengers: Endgame won choice action movie, with Robert Downey Jr. and Scarlett Johansson winning Choice Action Movie Actor and Actress for their roles as Iron Man and Black Widow in the movie (RIP). Josh Brolin also won an award, Choice Movie Villain, for playing Thanos in the movie.
For TV, Riverdale swept the Choice Drama TV categories, with Cole Sprouse and Lili Reinhart nabbing the acting awards. (The pair also won the “Choice Ship” award, which just might be the most teen award to ever exist.) Stranger Things also did well, winning Choice Summer TV Show. Leads Noah Schnapp (Will) and Millie Bobby Brown (Eleven) also won Choice Summer TV Actor and Actress.
There were more than 70 Teen Choice Awards in all, selected by more than 55 million voters. Check out a full list of winners here.
