Teen Choice Awards
The Teen Choice Awards, are an annual awards show that air on the Fox cable channel, that honor the year’s biggest achievements in music, movies, sports, television, fashion and more, voted by teen viewers aged 14 through 17. Since the ceremony’s inception, the show has given out genuine custom-made surfboards to individual winners (they cost over $800 each to manufacture). They create a new original design every year. The surfboard was chosen as the award because it represents the freedom of the summer vacation for teens, whether they surf or not. Some celebrities have used them to surf (Jennifer Love Hewitt); Marlon Wayans famously said “Brothers don’t surf” and in 2009, Hugh Jackman, upon winning his first one, said he was no longer the only Australian without a surfboard.
The program features a number of celebrities and musical performers that were famous at the time. The ceremony has also created spin-off teen awards on YouTube. The format of the show has remained the same, awarding the achievements of those in the entertainment and athletic industries with non-traditional categories fixed into the ceremony. The show was held at the Barker Hangar at Santa Monica Airport for its first two shows in 1999 and 2000. However, since 2001, it has been held at the Gibson Amphitheatre in Universal City, CA.
