Johnny Depp and Kristen Stewart didn’t get it at the Kids Choice Awards on Saturday. But Josh Duhamel, Neal Patrick Harris, the Lakers’ Dwight Howard, singer Pitbull and Nick Cannon definitely got it.
“It,” of course, was the trademark green slime bath of Nickelodeon’s annual event, held this year at the Galen Center on the USC campus.
Depp did get the young fans’ award — an orange mini-blimp — for favorite movie actor, and Stewart won for favorite movie actress and female butt-kicker. And she was thinking she might be in for a goo bath.
"Dude, I was too much of a coward to accept this," said the “Twilight” series star from the podium.
She was spared, as was singer Christina Aguilera, who opened the show in a duet with Pitbull, then dunked her partner and the dancers on stage with the green stuff.
“Transformers” star Duhamel hosted the event and said that a record-breaking 350 million votes had been cast for awards, which honor kids' favorites in film, music, sports and TV. Then he pulled the switch and green-gooped the Lakers star Howard.
“I guess that’s what we’d call a slime dunk” Duhamel said. Sandra Bullock and Harris got their green on after a messed-up magic trick.
Other winners included Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, who picked up the trophy for male butt-kicker, "Victorious" as favorite TV show, Katy Perry as favorite female singer, Adam Sandler as favorite voice from an animated movie for "Hotel Transylvania," race car driver Danica Patrick as favorite female athlete and "The Hunger Games" as favorite movie and book.
