‘Step Up 2: The Streets’ Beats ‘Diving Bell and Butterfly’ at Teen Choice Awards

23332_StepUp2Body.jpg Hollywood, CA- At last night’s Teen Choice Awards, Step Up 2: The Streets took home the award for best movie drama, beating other nominees The Diving Bell and Butterfly , There Will Be Blood , and the Romanian abortion drama, 4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days . The award for Best Chick Flick went to the Katherine Heigl comedy 27 Dresses , narrowly beating the Julie Christie Alzheimer’s film Away From Her .

The 10th Annual Teen Choice Awards were co-hosted by Hannah Montana star Miley Cyrus and American humorist Garrison Keillor. The highlight of Fox’s broadcast was Cyrus grooving with friend Mandy Jiroux and their dance team M&M Cru as part of a dance-off with Adam Sevani and Jon Chu’s dance troupe ACDC. The dance-off was followed by a 90-minute modern dance competition between two troupes representing the choreography of Martha Graham and Doris Humphrey respectively.

In the television categories, the CW soap Gossip Girl scored six awards, shutting out PBS’s 4 1/2 hour Frontline documentary Bush’s War .

“The Teen Choice Awards carries on a tradition of excellence, honoring the best in motion pictures, music and television,” said Cyrus. “No film has ever spoken to the American youth like Step Up 2: The Streets . As an allegory for modern race relations and the age-old American class struggle, it towers over the other nominees as this year’s cinematic masterpiece.”

Special honors at last night’s ceremony included a Lifetime Achievement Award given to High School Musical star Zac Efron and a tribute to deceased Swedish director Ingmar Bergman.
