Though this weekend was a harrowing time in several parts of the country, the Teen Choice Awards unfolded undeterred last night, so that at the start of the next Civil War, we’ll at least know who the last breakout film, TV, and music stars were. Riverdale was the big winner, picking up nods for best—sorry, Choice—TV drama, TV drama actor (Cole Sprouse), and TV drama breakout (Lili Reinhart, the other half of Bughead), among other high honors. There was a three-way tie for most awards in the film category: Wonder Woman, Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2, and Spider-Man: Homecoming scored three apiece, though in different genres (action, sci-fi, and “summer,” respectively). The teens also showed Fuller House, The Flash, Supergirl’s Melissa Benoist, and “Despacito” some love, though they appeared slightly out of touch by voting 2017 Grammy winner Chance The Rapper this year’s breakout music artist. We’ve posted the film, TV, and music winners below, but Deadline has the full list, which includes “digital.”
