It may have been seriously panned on release, but The Fault in Our Stars proves that teenagers have the last word where soppy stories about cancer and beautiful boys are concerned.

The film scooped a huge seven wins at the Teen Choice Awards on Sunday night, including Choice Movie: Drama and Choice Movie Actress.

The film follows the story of a young cancer sufferer (Shailene Woodley) who falls for an ex-sufferer in her support group (Ansel Elgort, who also received the Choice Actor award).

And because naturally the Teen Choice Awards always turns into The Breakfast Club, Shailene Woodley had some words of wisdom for her fans:

The truest form of bravery and courage is to wake up every single day, and to be ourselves. You do you. I'm gonna do me.

You tell 'em Shailene.

The night's other big winners included The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, teen mystery drama Pretty Little Liars and Selena Gomez, who won the Ultimate Choice award for career achievements. Fo' real.
