    Twilight was the big winner at the US People's Choice Awards, taking home four prizes for favourite movie, drama, actress and on-screen team.

    Star Robert Pattinson had an awkward moment in the front row with rumoured girlfriend Kristen Stewart, when it looked like he was trying to hold her hand to help her up the stage steps.

    Katy Perry could hardly contain her excitement when she picked up two awards for favourite female and online sensation.

    Russell Brand's new wife said: "I'm so happy to be here, and I have had an incredible year and I'm really excited."

    Also taking home two trophies was musical television show Glee for favourite TV comedy and comedy actress for Jane Lynch, who plays Sue Sylvester.

    Meanwhile, Taylor Swift, whose Speak Now album was one of the biggest sellers of 2010, won best country artist.

    New father Sir Elton John presented the 21-year-old with her gong, and Taylor took the opportunity to congratulate him: "Wow. Elton, congratulations to you, you're a dad now! It's beautiful."

    Other Peoples Choice Awards went to Johnny Depp who won favourite movie actor for a second year running, Zac Efron who won a prize for favorite movie star under-25 and Adam Sandler won the award for favorite comedic star.

    Organisers of the ceremony, which is totally fan-driven, say a record 175 million votes were cast for favourite stars of television, movies and music.
