Slime Time at Kids' Choice Awards
Kid Reporter has the winners and the slimers
Kids get to choose the Nickelodeon's Kids' Choice Awards and this year a record number of 115 million voters had their say. The Saturday special was filled with awards, jokes, and lots of green slime.
Everything is more kid-friendly at the Kids' Choice Awards, from the orange carpet to the high energy of both the nominees and the fans lining up to get a glimpse of their favorite stars.
"I'm very pumped," said iCarly's Jennette McCurdy before the show. McCurdy was dressed in green to "respect the slime."
Host Kevin James made it his goal to become "beyond awesome," with a little help from pal Adam Sandler. According to an "awesome" meter, he succeeded by the show's conclusion when he was finally covered in sticky green slime.
"Join the club," said Sandler a former host who has also done some "slime time" as a former host.
But let's get to the winners! For Favorite Movie, the blimp went to Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel. iCarly won Favorite TV Show for the second year, although Selena Gomez from Wizards of Waverly Place took home the blimp for Favorite TV Actress.
Dylan Sprouse beat his brother Cole Sprouse for Favorite TV Actor. The Sprouse twins are stars of The Suite Life on Deck. Taylor Lautner won Favorite Movie Actor for Twilight: New Moon. Miley Cyrus won Favorite Movie Actress for Hannah Montana: The Movie.
The President and Mrs. Obama lost the Favorite Cutest Couple award to Jacob and Bella from the Twilight movies. First Lady Michelle Obama did win the Big Help award, however, for her work with Let's Move, a national initiative she began this year to keep children fit and healthy.
Diary of a Wimpy Kid also won Favorite Book for the first time, after having been nominated numerous times before.
"You just can't compete with Taylor Lautner's abs," says Jeff Kenney, author of the series. This year, Wimpy ruled!
But let's get back to that slime. You can see all the rest of the winners on the Kids' Choice Awards website.
Olympic gold medalist Apollo Anton Ohno broke a new world slime record Saturday night when he was catapulted 60 feet into a vat of cold gooey slime.
"Would it have killed them to heat up the slime," he remembers thinking as he was submerged.
