Cameron Dallas, Bethany Mota, Kian Lawley Win Big At 2015 Teen Choice Awards

At this year’s Teen Choice Awards it wasn’t just the biggest names in movies, music, and television in attendance. Oh no. For the first time, the teenage voters at the TCAs were (supposedly…) responsible for picking the categories as well as the nominees and winners. Considering the latest generation of rock stars are usually, vine, insta, or YouTube famous, more internet celebrities went home with surfboards this year than ever before.

The awards got off to an unusual start with the cast of Straight Outta Compton, the music documentary chronicling events that took place close to two decades before any of the kids in the audience were even born, introducing the show. Still, the crowd cheered politely before erupting into a roar at the sight of boy band 5 Seconds of Summer taking to the stage to perform their hit single “She’s Kinda Hot.”

After the performance, Ellen Degeneres won the first award of the night; Choice Comedian. The daytime television host has enjoyed a resurgence in her popularity, particularly among younger audiences, after finding great success posting memorable clips from her show to her YouTube channel, which now has over 12 million subscribers and 4 billion views. She made a few jokes, but no one was expecting the level of feels when she opened up about her life to encourage young people to embrace their quirks:

“I wanna say also it feels good to be chosen, but there was a time in my life that I was not chosen,” Ellen said, referring to her coming out in 1997 while starring in a hit ABC television show. “I was the opposite of chosen because I was different, and I think I wanna make sure that everyone knows that what makes you different right now makes you stand out later in life. So you should be proud of being different. You should be proud of who you are.”

Cameron Dallas - Teen Choice

Self acceptance continued as a theme for the night when vlogger and beauty guru Bethany Mota accepted her award for Female Choice Web Star.

“I just want to tell everyone here that you are capable of so much. I used to limit myself all the time and I would think of things that I wanted to do and I’d be like ‘there’s no way I could do that.’ But making YouTube videos is one of those things that I just went for,” Mota told the audience. “I want to thank you guys for everything and remind you that you are all strong and powerful so don’t allow anyone to limit you. And, most of all, never limit yourself becase you’re all incredible.”

Male Choice Web Star winner Cameron Dallas echoed that sentiment, saying: “I just want to remind you guys that if you’re struggling, that you will get through it. There’s nothing you can’t do.”
