Kristen Stewart and the 'Twilight Saga' were the big winners at last night's People's Choice Awards.

The 20-year-old actress beat the likes of Julia Roberts, Jennifer Aniston and Angelina Jolie to win Favourite Movie Actress, while 'Twilight Saga: Eclipse', the latest instalment in the vampire film franchise – in which Kristen plays Bella Swan – picked up three awards, including Favourite Movie.

Surpassing 'The Social Network' and 'Inception' for the gong, 'Eclipse' also won Favourite Drama Movie and Favourite On-Screen Team – for Kristen, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner - at the event, which was held at Los Angeles' Nokia Theatre.

Kristen said: "Thank you so much, I've never been to the People's Choice Awards before."

However, Kristen's boyfriend and co-star Robert – who plays Edward Cullen in the vampire franchise – wasn't able to match her success, and was beaten to Favourite Movie Actor by Johnny Depp, who was awarded the coveted accolade for his role as the Mad Hatter in 'Alice In Wonderland'.

Meanwhile, Zac Efron, 23, also beat the 24-year-old hunk to the title of Favourite Movie Star Under 25.

Elsewhere, Rihanna and Eminem also proved to be big winners on the night, taking home dual gongs for Favourite Song and Favourite Music Video for their summer hit 'Love The Way You Lie', while Rihanna took home Favourite Pop Artist.

The rapper further cemented his comeback to the music industry by winning Favourite Male Artist and Favourite Hip-Hop Artist.
