The Kids Choice Awards happened last night and they came with a whole lot of the traditional sliming.

Whether you go home with one of the blimp-shaped trophies or not, everyone’s a winner at the KCA, as long as they manage to avoid the sliming – which most of the A-list attendees didn’t do, as you might imagine. The first person to get a face full of the green goop was none other than rapper Pitbull himself, after he and Christina Aguilera opened the show with their song “Feel This Moment” along with a gang of mini-Me backup dancers. The performance went without a hitch, if you don’t count Aguilera sneakily sliming her co-star at the end of the show.

Johnny Depp and Kristen Stewart were among those honoured with an award – for favorite movie actor and favorite movie actress/female butt-kicker respectively. Remarkably, both of them managed a narrow escape from the sliming (well, almost). When accepting her award, Kristen commented: "Dude, I was too much of a coward to accept this," she exclaimed from the stage at the University of Southern California's Galen Center.

And that was just the beginning of the mock award show – and the sliming. Some other celebrities to catch a wave of goo were “Transformers” star Josh Duhamel, along with his co-presenter, LA Lakers player Dwight Howard. Later on in the Evening Neil Patrick Harris and Sandra Bullock also received a sliming – just for being on stage, really. No one ever said that the Kids Choice Awards producers were mature, you know.
