Poll: Was 'Twilight Saga: Eclipse' robbed at the Teen Choice Awards?

Twilight Saga Eclipse

In past years, "Twilight Saga" films always swept the Teen Choice Awards and "Eclipse" was the fave to lead the way again Sunday night, but it got –- well –- eclipsed in some top races.

"Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2" pulled off a real magic trick by doing what the previous Potter pix couldn't do –- that is, drive a stake into the award hopes of the trendy vampire flicks. According to the award pundits at Gold Derby, "Twilight Saga: Eclipse" was expected to win choice sci-fi/fantasy film; Robert Pattinson was supposed to win male hottie sci-fi fantasy actor and share the trophy for best lip lock with Kristen Stewart.

However, "Harry Potter" won the film prize; Daniel Radcliffe and Emma Watson won the smooch award; Justin Bieber was hailed as top hottie. Watson even beat Stewart for best sci-fi actress. "Twilight" did win the actor's prize for sci-fi/fantasy fare, but it went to Pattinson's studly rival Taylor Lautner.

Lesser "Twilight" stars Kellan Lutz and Ashley Greene won the scene stealer categories, and Pattinson won a token consolation prize -- choice vampire –- but otherwise there was little recognition for "Twilight" compared to previous years. Why? Is everybody just now caught up in hysteria over the release of the last "Harry Potter" film?
