Twilight Slumdog Millionaire Teen Choice Awards news 1357924

The "Twilight" phenomenon rolls on as the teen vampire romance leads with an even dozen nominations going into this Sunday's Teen Choice Awards.

"Slumdog Millionaire" may be the reigning Oscar champ, but it runs far behind "Twilight" with only six TCA bids. The two films face off for best drama as well as actor (Robert Pattinson and Dev Patel) and actress (Kristen Stewart and Freida Pinto). 

Six of the "Twilight" cast – Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, fresh-face nominees Taylor Lautner, Ashley Greene and Nikki Reed, as well as Kellan Lutz – are slated to appear on the Teen Choice Awards. The kudofest – held at the Gibson Amphitheatre in Universal City – airs Monday night on Fox. 

At the MTV Movie Awards in May, "Twilight" won five awards, including best film. The Teen Choice Awards boast many more categories, with seven surfboards handed out for top films as well as actor and actress in the following genres: action/adventure, bromantic comedy, comedy, drama, horror/thriller and music/dance.

In second place among the movies is "High School Musical 3," which has 10 nominations, including best music/dance movie and four acting nods (Corbin Bleu, Zac Efron, Vanessa Hudgens and Ashley Tisdale).

"Gossip Girl" leads the TV nominations with 10 as well, including best drama and four acting nods (Penn Badgley, Chace Crawford, Blake Lively and Leighton Meester).

This year's Teen Choice Awards hosts – the Jonas Brothers – contend in nine categories for their music and TV efforts as well as for their red carpet appearances and general "hottie"-ness. And Miley Cyrus – who is set to perform her new single, "Party in the USA," on the show – competes in seven races for her work in both TV and movie versions of "Hannah Montana" as well as for her music and red carpet appearances.
