On Saturday, Kristen Stewart and Johnny Depp were almost successful in avoiding slime while receiving the blimp-shaped orange-colored trophies at the Kids Choice Awards held on the Galen Center at the University of Southern California.
At the 26th event of the annual awards, Depp won the award in the category of favorite movie actor for the movie ‘Dark Shadows’. On the other hand, Stewart grabbed two titles – female butt-kicker for the movie ‘Snow White and the Huntsman’ and favorite movie actress for the movie ‘The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2’. While embracing the slime smeared on the stage, she playfully said that she was too much of a coward to accept that.
Christina Aguilera and Pitbull started the show with a duet performance of the song ‘Feel This Moment’. A group of young backup dancers resembling the blonde diva and the shaved-head rapper shared the stage with the duo. Aguilera covered the dancers and Pitbull with green goo by pushing a button at the end of the performance.
However, it was just the start of the celeb sliming. As the show host, one of the first acts of Josh Duhamel was to unload the goop on Dwight Howard, the star player of Los Angeles Lakers.
The star of the TV series ‘How I Met Your Mother’ Neil Patrick Harris and Sandra Bullock took a dip in the green stuff after a magic trick from Harris went out of kilter. Dwayne Johnson, widely known as WWE’s wrestler ‘The Rock’, won the award for male butt-kicker. He blasted Duhamel and Nick Cannon with the goo.
Duhamel revealed that 350 million votes had been cast for the event, which is a record for any viewer-voted ceremony this year. The event gives recognition to kids’ choice by honoring their favorites from music, movie, TV, and sports.
