Twilight star scoops two awards
Twilight star Taylor Lautner has picked up two orange, blimp-shaped trophies at the 23rd annual Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Awards.
Lautner snared the favourite actor honour for his New Moon role as hunky werewolf Jacob Black as well as the inaugural cutest couple award with his Twilight co-star Kristin Stewart.
"I have to admit I have always dreamt of winning one of these orange blimps," said Lautner.
The fan-favourite ceremony's host, Paul Blart: Mall Cop actor-comedian Kevin James, kicked off the show by performing a hip-hop dance routine as Adam Sandler serenaded him from above while dressed as an angel and fountains of green slime spontaneously gushed on the first few rows of the audience.
Katy Perry, wearing a bright blue wig and skintight flowery dress, was blasted with slime when presenting the favourite movie actress trophy to Miley Cyrus. The I Kissed a Girl singer chased the Hannah Montana actress around the stage, but co-presenter Jonah Hill grabbed Perry before she could embrace the 17-year-old singer-actress with a slimy hug.
"I can't see anything," complained Perry. "Why does it taste like boogers?"
Other favourites included Alvin and The Chipmunks: The Squeakquel for movie, Up for animated movie, Jim Carrey for voice from an animated movie for A Christmas Carol, Mario Kart for video game, iCarly for TV show, American Idol for reality show, SpongeBob SquarePants for cartoon, Dylan Sprouse for TV actor and Selena Gomez for TV actress.
First lady Michelle Obama won the ceremony's Big Help award for her Let's Move campaign to cut down on childhood obesity. The honour is part of Nick's own Millions on the Move campaign. Over the next few months, the network will feature public service announcements to encourage kids to stay active and promote activities that help the environment.
