Parties: “The Twilight Saga: New Moon” Premiere Photo Gallery

It was a wild night in Westwood on Monday, November 16, as the premiere of "The Twilight Saga: New Moon" swept into the Mann Village Theatre. Screaming fans started lining up days before in the hopes of getting a glimpse - or even a kiss! – from one of the stars of this sequel to "Twilight." And they were not disappointed, as teen heartthrobs Robert Pattinson, Taylor Lautner, Kristen Stewart, and the rest of the "New Moon" stars all basked in the adulation, posing for pics, joking with the crowd, and even bestowing a smooch or two on their delighted fans. Our Christina Radish was there in the thick of it, and got some fantastic shots of the vampires, werewolves, and the humans who love them. The film opens everywhere Friday, November 20, 2009 (www.newmoonthemovie.com/). But you knew that already, didn't you? [...]

Events: Teen Choice Awards 2009 – Exclusive Photo Gallery

They gave out 87 surfboards (the night's unwieldy trophy) at the Teen Choice Awards held on Sunday, August 9, at the Universal Studios Hollywood Ampitheatre, and aired on Fox Television on Monday, August 10. That meant that just about anyone who is anyone in the hearts of teenagers right now took home a prize. And of course, everything "Twilight" is front and center right now as anticipation builds toward the November release of "Twilight: New Moon," so it's no surprise that the first film grabbed 11 Teen Choice Awards, including Choice Movie Drama, Drama Actress for Kristen Stewart and Actor for Robert Pattinson. It was a scream fest, as the lucky few teens in the audience, out of the 83 million teens that voted for the awards, let their favorites know loud and clear just how much they love them. [...]

It seems that Mel Gibson should have recruited WWE superstar “Miz,” a.k.a.
