Johnny Depp 'slimes' kids at awards

JOHNNY Depp "slimed" the audience at the Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Awards last night.

The 47-year-old star picked up the accolade for Favourite Movie Actor for his role as the Mad Hatter in 'Alice in Wonderland' and celebrated his victory by dousing the front rows at Los Angeles' USC Galen Centre with green goo.

Before turning his slime gun on the crowd, Johnny said: "You guys are the future. Take good care of us."

Singer-and-actor Justin Timberlake was also honoured at the ceremony, but for his charitable efforts.

Picking up the Big Help award, he said: "I want to dedicate this to all of you very cool, very loud kids. This is your world."

Absentee Justin Bieber was the night's biggest winner, picking up Favourite Male Singer and Favourite Song for his hit 'Baby', while 'The Karate Kid' took Favourite Movie and its star Jackie Chan was named Favourite Butt-Kicker.

Jack Black returned to host the ceremony for the third time, kicking off proceedings by dancing down the orange carpet to the Black Eyed Peas' hit 'I Gotta Feeling'.

He then joined the band on stage as they performed 'Time of my Life' and 'Just Can't Get Enough'.

The band were later honoured as Favourite Music Group, and in her speech, Fergie jokingly renamed themselves the Jack Black Eyed Peas.

Award presenters included Heidi Klum, Josh Duhamel, Joe Jonas, Russell Brand, Jane Lynch and Kim Kardashian, while performers included Willow Smith and Big Time Rush.
