Teen Awards Favor ‘Spider-Man’
Mandy Moore and Shane West displayed the coolest chemistry in “A Walk to Remember,” but Tobey Maguire and Kirsten Dunst had the best “lip lock” for their rainy, upside-down smooch in “Spider-Man.”
So decreed the voters of the Teen Choice Awards, the fourth annual youth popularity celebration held Sunday at the Universal Amphitheater.
Britney Spears and Ja Rule were selected favorite female and male singers, respectively, while Usher was named best rap artist and his single “U Got It Bad” was chosen best love song.
The Adam Sandler comedy “Mr. Deeds” was chosen movie of the summer, while “Spider-Man” claimed favorite action film and last summer’s raunchy “American Pie 2” was named “Choice Movie Your Parents Didn’t Want You To See.”
Voters selected “Friends” best TV comedy, while MTV’s documentary series about rocker Ozzy Osbourne’s family received best TV reality show. “7th Heaven” won best TV drama.
Ice skater Michelle Kwan and Los Angeles Lakers star Kobe Bryant won favorite female and male athlete, respectively.
The Teen Choice Awards ceremony was taped for broadcast Aug. 19 on the Fox network. Votes for favorite actors, musicians and athletes were cast on forms published in Seventeen, a fashion and lifestyle magazine targeting teenage girls, and made available online.
