The vampire love story's stars Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart picked up prizes for Breakthrough Performance (Male) and Best Female Performance, respectively, and they shared the night's Best Kiss honor at the ceremony on Sunday.

Pattinson also shared the Best Fight award with another Twilight co-star, Cam Gigandet.

Meanwhile, Pattinson and Stewart joined Taylor Lautner to introduce the world premiere trailer for Twilight sequel New Moon.

The award show's other multi-winner was High School Musical 3: Senior Year. Oscar-winning movie Slumdog Millionaire, which had six nominations, won nothing.

The event featured live performances from Eminem and Kings of Leon and was capped off by a series of hilarious skits, hosted by comedian Andy Samberg.

The show's most jaw-dropping moment came when bare-bottomed British comedian Sacha Baron Cohen, dressed as a giant dove and in character as Bruno, fell from the roof of the Universal Amphitheater onto rapper Eminem's lap.

The prank appeared not to be a joke -- and the rapper stormed off with his entourage in tow.

The list of winners is:

Breakthrough Performance (Female) - Ashley Tisdale (High School Musical 3: Senior Year)

Best Fight - Cam Gigandet & Robert Pattinson (Twilight)

Breakthrough Performance (Male) - Robert Pattinson (Twilight)

Best Male Performance - Zac Efron (High School Musical 3: Senior Year)
