'Eclipse' Stars Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, Taylor Lautner All Winners At People's Choice Awards 2011.

It was a rough start for "The Twilight Saga: Eclipse" at the People's Choice Awards — a ceremony fans expected the vampire franchise to sweep. Surprisingly, "Eclipse" was left empty-handed until the show's final moments.

Early in the ceremony, Johnny Depp bested both Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner for Favorite Movie Actor, while Zac Efron won Favorite Movie Star Under 25 over both Robert and Kristen Stewart.

Some speculated that having two nominees in both categories split the vote, resulting in "Twilight"'s loss, though others argued that the winners were more deserving candidates.

Thankfully, that was the end of the "Twilight" pity party, because Rob, Kristen and Taylor cleaned up the other four categories they were nominated in.

Kristen won Favorite Movie Actress and was accompanied to the podium by Taylor to receive her award from "True Blood"'s Stephen Moyer and Malin Akerman.

"I've never been to the People's Choice Awards," she said during her acceptance speech. "This is so exciting." She then proceeded to spill a rather substantial plot point from "Breaking Dawn" (SPOILER!)

"Eclipse" won the big award of the night: Favorite Movie. All three actors took to the stage, joking about who would deliver their thank yous first.

Eager Taylor won, saying, "I can't believe this. You guys [the fans] are unreal. It still amazes me, for movie No. 3, 'Eclipse,' already. You guys have gotten us here today." After Kristen thanked the "Twilight" producers and Summit Entertainment, Rob chimed in, adding, "I couldn't hear what either of them said. I can guarantee they both wrote speeches...Thanks so much for everything."

"Eclipse" also scored statues in the Favorite Drama Movie and Favorite Onscreen Team categories.
