Rebel Wilson's joke about One Direction might have made it onto Australian TV screens but US censors at the Teen Choice Awards thought otherwise.
Wilson made the joke in Los Angeles while on stage to accept her prize for Choice Actress in a Comedy, for her performance in Pitch Perfect.
The Aussie actress' appearance in a pink-and-black wetsuit with her name on the front got a huge laugh, given that the awards are handed out in the form of surfboards.
However Wilson didn't fare so well after telling the crowd that One Direction was the name she gave to her "arsehole," according to eonline.com.
Glee star Lea Michele made her first public appearance at the awards following the death of her co-star and real-life boyfriend Cory Monteith at Sunday's Teen Choice Awards.
Monteith, who co-hosted the Teen Choice Awards in 2010, was found dead on July 13 in Vancouver, British Columbia. An autopsy revealed the 31-year-old actor died of an overdose of heroin and alcohol.
Michele won Choice TV Actress in a comedy for her role on Glee and took the stage to tearfully address the audience while wearing a necklace that said "Cory".
"I just wanted to be here today to personally thank all of you and tell everyone out there how much all of your love and support has meant to me over these very difficult past few weeks," she said.
She dedicated the award to Monteith saying: "For all of you out there who loved and admired Cory as much as I did, I promise that with your love we're gonna get through this together. He was very special to me and also to the world."
Glee also won Choice TV Comedy and cast member Amber Reilly said: "Although we lost someone that we really love and that you guys love too we are very fortunate to come back to a show where we feel the love of family and Cory was like a brother to us."
There were also lighthearted, silly moments during the show, ripe for the screaming teens in the audience.
One Direction kicked off the night with their new song Best Song Ever while later in the show hosts Darren Criss and Lucy Hale got Harry Styles to twerk as the audience went wild.
Some of the show's celebrity presenters tried to use the opportunity as teaching moments for the younger audience.
"Tonight means your vote matters," said Scandal star Kerry Washington with The Vampire Diaries actor Ian Somerhalder, of the more than 150 million votes cast, setting a new record for the show.
Ashton Kutcher received the Ultimate Choice Award and afterwards joked, "Let's be brutally honest. This is the old guy award.
He said he wanted to impart some life-lessons to his younger fans.
"The sexiest thing in the entire world is being really smart and being thoughtful and being generous," he said.
