Mar. 24 - A-listers get covered in green slime at the 2013 Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Awards in Los Angeles. John Russell reports.
Green slime spewed fast and furious at the Kids Choice Awards on Saturday (March 23), where "Twilight Saga" star Kristen Stewart and British boy band One Direction picked up two awards apiece. Stewart, 22, escaped the slime but plunged her hands into the green goo saying she felt like she finally "realized my kindergartner self," as she accepted trophies for movie actress and favorite female butt kicker. Organizers said more than 350 million votes were cast online in more than 20 categories spanning film, television, books, music and sport for the stunt-filled annual award show on youth channel Nickelodeon. Johnny Depp and Katy Perry accepted orange blimp-shaped trophies for favorite female singer and movie actor respectively and both stars had words of wisdom and praise for the audience of kids and young teens. Selena Gomez, 20, the ex-girlfriend of pop star Justin Bieber, took the female TV actress award for her Disney Channel series "Wizards of Waverly Place," even though the show came to an end more than a year ago. Bieber, who is on tour in Europe, was voted favorite male singer and was among several stars who did not make it to accept their award in person.
