At the 2012 Teen Choice Awards, we saw a numbers of young Latinos take home awards.
Demi Lovato did double duty as both a nominee and as host and took home the awards for Choice Summer Music Star: Female and Choice Twit (for her activities on Twitter).
Fellow Latinos/Hispanics who won awards:
Lea Michele for Choice TV Actress: Comedy
Zoe Saldana for Choice Movie Actress: Action for Colombiana
Jennifer Lopez for Choice TV: Female Personality for American Idol
Adam Rodriguez for Choice TV Actor: Action for his role on CSI: Miami
Selena Gomez and the Scene took home the award for Choice Music Group. The day of the award show just happened to land on Gomez’s 20th birthday and she was presented with a sparkler-topped cupcakes as fellow celebrities sang “Happy Birthday.”
When she and her band nabbed their Teen Choice Award, Gomez told the audience, “This is the best birthday present ever.”
Following the awards show, Gomez and her 18-year-old boyfriend Justin Bieber reportedly had a romantic dinner at Beverly Hills’ Il Cielo.
On Monday, Gomez raved about her birthday festivities on Facebook, gushing, “Beyond blessed. So much love. Thank you for the most incredible birthday yet! I’m truly, truly grateful. I love my family, friends and all of you.”
We’d also like to make special note of awards won by shows with Latino/Hispanic cast members:
