LOS ANGELES — Johnny Depp and Kristen Stewart avoided slime — mostly — while picking up blimp-shaped trophies at the Kids Choice Awards on Saturday.
The “Dark Shadows” star won as favorite movie actor at the 26th annual awards extravaganza, while the “Twilight” leading lady was selected as favorite 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 “Feel This Moment” and were joined by young backup dancers resembling the smooth-headed rapper and blonde diva. At the end, Aguilera mashed a button, covering Pitbull and the dancers in the show’s signature green goo.
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 honors kids’ favorites in film, music, sports and TV.
Kristen Stewart accepts the award for favorite movie actress for ‘The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2’ at the 26th annual Nickelodeon’s Kids’ Choice Awards on Saturday in Los Angeles.×
