Twilight poised to eclipse awards

The Twilight saga is once again expected to dominate the Teen Choice awards

The Twilight Saga is once again expected to claw the competition at the Teen Choice Awards.

The third instalment of the supernatural saga is leading the pack of wannabe winners at Sunday's fan-favourite ceremony in Los Angeles, with 12 nominations in such categories as choice best movie liplock and villain.

The film franchise starring Robert Pattinson, Kristin Stewart and Taylor Lautner has dominated the Teen Choice Awards since the first Twilight flick debuted in 2008.

Pattinson, Lautner, Kellan Lutz, Nikki Reed and Ashley Greene are among the series' stars scheduled to appear Sunday.

If history is any indication, The Twilight Saga cast will make several trips to the podium to accept surfboard-shaped trophies at the over-the-top ceremony. Last year, The Twilight Saga: New Moon collected the most honours with 12 wins.

The Big Bang Theory leading lady Kaley Cuoco will host the 13th annual awards extravaganza at Universal Studios Hollywood's Gibson Amphitheatre, airing live on Fox. OneRepublic, will.i.am, Jason Derulo and Selena Gomez & the Scene are set to serve as musical performers.

Gomez is up for seven awards, including the TV actress and music single categories.

The awards, which honour celebrities in TV, film, music and sports, are selected by votes cast online. Other multiple nominees include the movies Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows and The Hangover Part II, as well as TV favourites Glee, Gossip Girl, The Vampire Diaries and Pretty Little Liars.
