Kids' Choice Awards: Katy Perry, Kristen Stewart & One Direction Among The Winners
Nickelodeon’s 26th Kids' Choice Awards was broadcast on Saturday night from the Galen Center at USC in Los Angeles, and was hosted by actor Josh Duhamel.
The night, for which kids around the globe cast a record-breaking 387 million votes, awarded entertainers in 22 categories. Among the winning actors were Kristen Stewart (who took home two awards), Johnny Depp for Dark Shadows and Selena Gomez for her work in TV. Katy Perry, One Direction, and Justin Bieber took home music awards. And LeBron James and Danika Patrick were the kids’ favorite athletes. Spongebob Squarepants won for favorite cartoon, and The Hunger Games won the awards for favorite movie and favorite book.
Duhamel accessed his inner child, pulling out all of the stops to host the kid-friendly awards show. He opened the show by singing a reworked version of Pitbull’s “Don’t Stop the Party” and continued to entertain throughout the night. Duhamel even thumb wrestled former Real World cast member Mike “The Miz” and donned the same dress as his pregnant wife Fergie.
It wouldn’t be a Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Awards without celebrity sliming. Sandra Bullock, Josh Hutcherson, Amanda Seyfried, Neil Patrick Harris and even host Duhamel got covered in the lime green goo.
