'Kids' Choice Awards': Goo had it coming, Jim Carrey and Russell Brand!

Watching and listening to an auditorium full of shrieking children may not be the most relaxing way to spend a Saturday night, but nothing beats the sight of an A or even C-level celebrity getting an upper cut of slime on live television. Then again, even a Dolce and Gabbana-wearing Heidi Klum can make a marinade of green goo look amazing, which goes to show how fashionable — if not a little frightening — it has become to participate in Nickelodeon’s annual Kids Choice Awards in Los Angeles.

In fact, Jim Carrey can attest first hand how fraught with the danger the live, 90-minute show can be for the stars. While scurrying around backstage, Carrey lost his step on an errant pool of slime and almost took a spill before his big splash at the show’s end. Bravely, he came only to dump a mountain of gook on host Jack Black, who was back for this third time as the show’s jovial host.

Not everybody was prepared for the onslaught of ooze. “I’m never having children!” screamed Russell Brand, who was there to present an award with Modern Family’s Rico Rodriguez but found himself dodging unexpected handfuls of slime from the soaked kids in the mosh pit. “I am English! I am your royalty!”

Didn’t wife Katy Perry, who got a face full of muck last year, warn him of the dangers?

Nickelodeon likes to juxtapose zany moments  — like a contest to see who can produce the best armpit fart — with snapshots of class, like Justin Timberlake enthusiastically accepting the Big Help Award for his charitable work for Shriner’s Hospital. “Listen to your parents!” Timberlake shouted to the crowd. (Both philanthropic and wise!) Music also plays a big role in the annual celebration: Willow Smith performed “Whip My Hair,” while the Black Eyed Peas served as the opening act and end up receiving the prize for Favorite Music Group.

Fergie used her time on stage to tease her husband, Josh Duhamel, who showed up to the fete looking like a much taller Justin Bieber. (He came in a purple bow tie and purple glasses). The ribbing shouldn’t stop there: Duhamel ended up winning the prize for best armpit fart, beating out Kevin James and The Big Bang Theory’s Kaley Cuoco.

Eventually, awards were distributed based on a record 200 million votes from Nickelodeon viewers. Not every winner attended the show in the Galen Center on the University of Southern California Campus, but good sports like Johnny Depp, Eddie Murphy and Miley Cyrus were there to join KCA regulars like Will and Jaden Smith, Jane Lynch, Randy Jackson, Miranda Cosgrove and Joe Jonas. (Special what the $%$#!@ shout-out to Gossip Girl’s Taylor Momsen, who came wearing a ghastly pair of stilt-like pumps). Stevie Wonder was even in the house with his grandkids.

    eh. i only watched because i was bored.

    • Jenn

      Shaquille O’Neal is the favorite athlete?
      Did they take the survey 7 years ago?
      What a joke.
      The guy’s a fat cross-eyed slob who rides the bench and gets about 2 minutes a game of playing time.

      If anybody thinks they actually count the real votes in this farce of an awards show, they should be euthanized immediately.

      • Jakob Ross

        Keep in mind that children are voting here. Seven year olds probably have no idea who these athletes are and only voted because they had to vote for favorite athlete. Personally, I can’t believe that Black Eyed Peas won after their SuperBowl disaster and loss of credibility in the music world. But, I digress.

      • Couchtime With Jill

        It’s the Kids’ Choice Awards. They don’t care about the Superbowl performance or credibility. Have you met any eight year-olds recently? They love “I’ve Got A Feeling”.

      • Davis

        … Of course kids love Shaq. It’s “favorite” athlete, not best athlete.

    • Tom

      So snoop dog turned down Charlie Sheen to perform for these kids? Huh

  • Regina

    I thought Britney’s part was amazing. They’ve hyped it for weeks on end and let me tell you she didn’t disappoint…she OWNED those two seconds of screen time!

    • hermione

        I really hope you are the same person. For literacy and grammar’s sake.

      • WIlliam

        What language is that?

      • yepyep

        what heck kind of language is that, you need to sit down (dramatic pause) in a class room where it teaches at least the basic grammar.

      • Alyssa

        What a great list! And you’re absolutely right, way more fun (and human) than Disney!He that hath a beard is more than a youth, and he that hath no beard is less than a man; and he that is more than a youth is not for me, and he that is less than a man I am not for him!

  • rob

    this is why you need to be 18 to vote.

  • Mark

    Shaq?! What year is this??

    • steph

    • Marshal

      Well, last year they had Shaq vs.

  • catalina martinez

    why wold someone get goo om the because they lost

  • Mick

    The only awards show where the stars look like they have fun or totally hate it. Willow was ok, she can sing. But needs more notes on performing, which is expected she’s a newbie. I will say this though she has more confidence than some grown women I’ve seen perform.

    • Jenn

      You’re pathetic, Mick.

      • Odan

        Vicky Austin in the Meet the Austins series. I feel an afftniiy same initials, same last name. Same awesomely awkward and precocious teenagerhood. In other ways, there isn’t an afftniiy and I want to be more like her. I’m thankful for Madeline L’Engle’s creation of relatable female characters.

    • Liz Lemon

      Agreed. For an 11 year old, ADORABLE, LITTLE GIRL, she’s fantastic. People who hate on a baby have got some seriously issues that they need to get fixed PROMPTLY!!

  • Alex

    Can’t wait to play SHAQ FU on my Super Nintendo.

    Well, I still have my Super Nintendo.

    Shaquielle Oneil?

    I hear he has a new movie coming out called Kazaam. Let’s watch.:)

  • Liz Lemon

    OMG! Do none of these commenters know proper GRAMMAR!!!

  • memi

    The Kid’s Choice Awards brought to you by the People’s Choice Awards. May irrelevance and mediocrity continue to reign supreme. My kid is 11 and thought the show and winners were lame. I guess she’s “aging out”.

    • Chris

      I aged out around 11 as well (well over a decade ago, scary enough. Kids love it, though.

  • kpbelle182

    Hahaha shaq hasn’t played in months!!!

  • slightly irrelevant but…

    i miss Avatar: The Last Airbender

  • Ronsen

    It was a great show!

  • Summer

    Bieber? YUCK!!!!!!! What has happened to talent?
