'Happyness' puts smile on voters

It was a good night for swashbucklers as the “Pirates of the Caribbean” series swept the Teen Choice Awards with wins in the action adventure pic category, as well as for Johnny Depp, Keira Knightley and Bill Nighy. The Disney pic also took home trophies for best fight scene and best smooch for Knightley and Orlando Bloom.

Other wins for the night went to “The Pursuit of Happyness” in the drama category, “The Holiday” for chick flick and “Knocked Up” for best laffer.

Will Farrell and Sophia Bush took home top honors for comedy, while Will Smith and Jennifer Hudson nabbed prizes in drama.

On the TV side, Disney Channel phenom “High School Musical 2” won best tube movie — as well as top star Zac Efron — and “Hannah Montana” took home the comedy title.

In the music department, Justin Timberlake won for favorite male artist and best payback track for “What Goes Around,” while Fergie was given the title of top female artist.
