“Riverdale” and “The Greatest Showman” Win Big at Teen Choice Awards

Teen Choice Awards may not be the most coveted ceremony in Hollywood, but it’s offbeat, youthful and super fun. It lived up to its reputation this weekend and handed out the surfboards to the very best of popular culture – as voted by American teens. Riverdale and The Greatest Showman dominated this year’s ceremony, taking home all the major awards.

Nick Cannon hosted the ceremony alongside internet sensation Lele Pons. The show also featured several impressive musical performances, including the ones by Bebe Rexha, Meghan Trainor and Foster the People.

The most exciting moment, however, came when the biggest names in movies, TV, music and entertainment started climbing the stage to collect their awards. Some of them are probably still wondering what they’re going to do with those giant surfboards, but it’s a huge honor nevertheless.

Riverdale was the clear winner of the night and it really gave all the other contenders run for their money. The hit CW drama only lost to itself in categories where it was nominated twice! It won the coveted award for Choice Drama TV Show and snatched another eight surfboards in other categories.

The Greatest Showman was the big winner amongst the movies, earning four of its seven nods – including Choice Drama Movie. When it comes to music, Camila Cabello and 5 Seconds of Summer led the pack, with three awards each.
