The Vampire Diaries has already sucked up five trophies at the Teen Choice Awards.

The supernatural CW series kicked off Sunday's fan-favourite ceremony by winning five surfboard-shaped trophies. Vampire Diaries was honoured for fantasy/sci-fi TV show, Ian Somerhalder for fantasy/sci-fi TV actor, Nina Dobrev for fantasy/sci-fi TV actress, Candice Accola for TV female scene stealer and Michael Trevino for TV male scene stealer.

Other early winners included Ellen DeGeneres for choice comedian and Sophia Grace and Rosie for choice Web stars. The pair of young British girls became popular after a video of them singing Nicki Minaj's Super Bass went viral.

Teen Choice Awards host and new The X Factor judge Demi Lovato said 134 million votes were cast for the awards, which honours film, TV, music and sports stars in such silly categories as choice hottie, villain, liplock and hissy fit.

"Are there even that many teens?" asked ceremony co-host and Glee actor Kevin McHale.

The Hollywood frolic was televised live on Fox two days after the midnight massacre at a Colorado movie theatre showing The Dark Knight Rises, killing 12 and injuring 58.

Show organisers say that The Dark Knight Rises was not up for any Teen Choice awards this year nor was any reference to the tragedy planned during the show.

The show is also airing in the wake of a fog machine malfunction that forced the evacuation of a Hollywood nightclub then night before hosting a Teen Choice Awards pre-party featuring the boy band Midnight Red.
