UPDATE! Daisy Ridley and Adam Driver Both Won Teen Choice Awards!

DaisyDaisy Ridley had a big night at the 18th annual Teen Choice Awards, held in Los Angeles on Sunday. The 24-year-old actress won the award for Choice Movie: Breakout Star in a direct competition with her friend and Star Wars: The Force Awakens co-star John Boyega! Daisy was also nominated in the category Choice Movie Actress: Sci-Fi/Fantasy.



The Teen Choice Awards celebrate the year’s achievements in music, film, television, sports, fashion, comedy, and the Internet, and were voted on by viewers aged 13 through 19 through various social media sites.

Ridley surprised her fans with a new ginger hair when she went out on the stage to receive her award. She gave a shout-out to her co-star John Boyega, who was also nominated in the same category:

It feels incredible to be in this category, with amazing people, especially my boy John!


It didn’t take long for John Boyega to respond on Twitter:




As you probably remember they both used the “peanut” nickname which they used to call each other during the production of The Force Awakens.


Daisy also didn’t forget to thank director J.J. Abrams for creating the character of Rey:

And after all the incredible people we just saw on stage, it feels especially important to be apart of a film that represents diversity in such a positive way.

So, thank you J.J. and Larry (Kasdan) and Michael (Arndt) for creating this character, and Disney, and everyone for letting me be Rey.



Here’s Daisy’s full acceptance speech:




She expressed her gratitude via her Instagram as well:



Star Wars: The Force Awakens was also nominated in the category Choice Movie: Sci-Fi/Fantasy, but it was Captain America: Civil War who grabbed the award.

It appears that also Adam Driver won the award in the category “Choice Movie: Villain”. For some reason most of the sites are only reporting Daisy’s win, but Driver’s achievement is not less important since he won against such actors like Daniel Brühl (Captain America: Civil War), Jesse Eisenberg (Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice), Aidan Gillen (Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials), Charlize Theron (The Huntsman: Winter’s War) and Ed Skrein (Deadpool). It seems that Driver was not present at the ceremony.


Also Rogue One was nominated in the category “Choice AnTEENcipated Movie”, which was won by Suicide Squad. And Daisy Ridley, and John Boyega were nominated in the category “Choice Movie Chemistry”, won by Thomas Brodie-Sangster & Dylan O’Brien (Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials).

    Who the hell is “Lowry”? (Just a spelling mistake I hope?) She obviously is thanking JJ and Larry, as in Larry Kasdan…Obviously.

    • August 1, 2016 at 6:22 pm

      Yes, I fixed that. It’s J.J. Abrams, Lawrence Kasdan and Michael Arndt

    Congrats to Daisy!

    Her legs are fantastic!

  • August 1, 2016 at 6:36 pm

    That’s the girl! Congratulations Daisy!

    Wtf, Jesse Eisenberg was nominated? His portrayal of Luthor was a disgrace to whole humanity… The only award he should get for it is the razzie.

    Holy God she is a doll with those dimples. Looks like Rey bulked up a bit to give Kylo Ren his second ass-whipping! He’s gonna need more training hahah.

    Captain America: Civil War won best Sci-Fi/Fantasy? I still can’t believe how overrated that movie is.

  • August 2, 2016 at 2:27 am

    The Teen Choice Awards still exist? I thought that crap died out a long time ago. But congrats anyway.

  • August 2, 2016 at 8:02 am

    Congrats to both! And Adam Driver was robbed in the “Best Hissy Fit” category! How did Kylo Ren lose that one?

    daisy ridley took down her account… what happenned? I heard she was again insulted by haters… poor girl…

    • August 3, 2016 at 12:00 am

      Seriously?! She’s the sweetest most inoffensive person to ever have an account! The trekkie in me would love to have a chat with these sad lonely people picard style to show them the error of their ways.

      • August 3, 2016 at 2:37 am

        “Picard style” – that’s where you bore the ever living shit out of someone until they go away, right? No, wait, that’s “Sisko style”. Picard style is the one where you bore the shit out of them and then YOU go away…but in a cloud of insufferable smugness.

          he he….sure 🙂

    • August 3, 2016 at 2:07 am

      She is way to sensitive. Like seriously she was in STARWARS of course she is gonna get criticized. Is she that ignorant.

      • August 3, 2016 at 4:17 am

        So because she acted and starred in a piece of entertainment that gives people the right to insult her as if she’s done something to them personally? okkkaaayyyy….

        • August 3, 2016 at 7:24 am

          Never said that. But when you’re in a movie like starwars you need to expect haters.

      • August 5, 2016 at 5:07 am

        eh…she probably just deleted it because she just didn’t want to be part of all of that nonsense and didn’t want it to escalate into something more stupid than it already was…better to just nip that shit in the bud before it becomes some stupid headline and made out to be something it wasn’t…America is getting pretty ridiculous with that crap these days… I am sure after the smoke clears she will be back online..if not…who can blame her? calling her ignorant is a bit of a stretch dude.after all…like you said..she is in Star Wars..I doubt she got to be the Luckiest woman in the world by being ignorant. What does that say about you ? I mean. its kind of odd to see some little Mexican guy who sits behind his keyboard all day on here arguing with people call someone who has a life and has actually done something with their life and gets be a part of something that you never will…”ignorant”…That woman has accomplished more in one year than you or anyone in your entire family will accomplish in their entire lifetime for generations…

      Yeah she said he was moved by the teen victims and family members of victims of gun violence that spoke during the awards and said she hoped that we could stop the violence. So she was viscously attacked in mass by a bunch of horrible people until she deleted her Instagram. Sad.

  • August 3, 2016 at 12:04 am

    Congrats for both. Shame that the oscars didnt nominate her for breakout perfornance or best actress. That title instead was given to Ms Ive been nominated four times for playing the same role in a more blander way Jennifer Lawrence. Gotta love Hollywood politics 😉

  • August 3, 2016 at 3:44 am

    I don’t like that look. Nope, not at all…

  • August 5, 2016 at 4:45 am

    she is getting thick and looking outstanding!! Her Jedi Training is going to be brutal and she is going to be a badass!
