Riverdale was the stand-out winner of the night, taking away big awards like the drama TV show award, TV villain award, drama TV actor and actress.

The cast were given their awards (huge surfboards) early on in the evening and then were sent straight back on a plane to Vancouver to resume filming for series three of the hit show.

Archie Andrews himself, played by KJ Apa, thanked the audience on stage.

"There's a lot of great shows, so we feel really grateful to be up here," said Apa.

"We started the show two years ago, and I think we're all kind of surprised about where the show has gone and how it's been accepted... thank you guys so much for watching the show."

Other highlights included Zac Efron continuing his bromance with The Greatest Showman co-star Hugh Jackman.

Efron took home the first award of the night for best drama movie actor and went on to win awards for Movie Ship with Zendaya and for the song Rewrite the Stars, which is also from the film.

Efron dedicated the best actor award to Jackman, saying: "From the bottom of my heart, I couldn't ask for a cooler, more amazing person to work with.

"He's my best dramatic actor - and a hero, and a mentor, and a good friend. Thank you, Hugh Jackman."

Anna Kendrick keeps Ryan Reynolds "feud" alive

Pitch Perfect 3 star Anna Kendrick accepted the award for comedy movie actress and also picked up the surfboard for best celebrity Twitter user.

Kendrick beat Ryan Reynolds to the Twitter prize and used it to take a little dig at the Deadpool actor.

"I know that Ryan Reynolds was nominated, so in your face, Ryan!" Kendrick said. "I beat you! Stay in your lane!"

The joke feud began when Reynolds's wife Blake Lively posted on Instagram about a new movie the two were starring in and called Kendrick "the hotter, femaler version of my husband".

Responding at San Diego Comic Con last month, Reynolds said of Kendrick running off with his wife: "I know a lot of guys that would be fine with that, but not me.

"I would like to hang on to her, I mean, she'd be well taken care of with Anna, though. I think she's got the goods, yeah, but no, access denied."
