K-Stew: Favourite female butt-kicker

2013-03-25 07:32
Los Angeles - Johnny Depp and Kristen Stewart avoided slime - mostly - while picking up blimp-shaped trophies at the 2013 Kids Choice Awards on Saturday.

The Dark Shadows star won as favourite movie actor at the 26th annual awards extravaganza, while the Twilight leading lady was selected as favourite movie actress and female butt-kicker.

"Dude, I was too much of a coward to accept this," she said embracing the slime slathered on the podium at the University of Southern California's Galen Center.

Pitbull and Christina Aguilera kicked off the silly show with their song Feel This Moment and were joined by young backup dancers resembling the smooth-headed rapper and blonde diva. At the end of their performance, Aguilera smashed a button, covering Pitbull and the dancers in the show's signature green goo.

Slime dunk

That was just the beginning of the celebrity sliming.

In one of his first acts as show host, Transformers star Josh Duhamel dumped the goop on Los Angeles Lakers player Dwight Howard.

"I guess that's what we call a slime dunk!" Duhamel said.

Sandra Bullock and Neil Patrick Harris caught a wave of the green stuff after a magic trick from the How I Met Your Mother co-star went awry.

Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, who picked up the trophy for male butt-kicker, blasted a sumo-suited Nick Cannon and Duhamel with the goo. The first few rows of the audience were also doused.

Duhamel said a record-breaking 350 million votes had been cast for this year's viewer-voted ceremony, which honours kids' favourites in film, music, sports and TV.

Other winners

Other winners included Victorious as favourite TV show, Katy Perry as favourite female singer, Adam Sandler as favourite voice from an animated movie for Hotel Transylvania, race car driver Danica Patrick as favourite female athlete and The Hunger Games as favourite movie and book.

"Always be nice to your parents," Sandler told the crowd of screaming kids while accepting his awards. "Always be nice to your teachers."
