Once again, the Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice awards came, saw … and slimed.Hollywood’s finest gathered at USC’s Galen Center in Los Angeles on Saturday to celebrate the online-voting of young adults across the country, who picked their favorites in entertainment and beyond.

The biggest names in young Hollywood hit the orange carpet March 23 for the 2013 Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards, but not all of the nominees emerged victorious — or slime-free!

Hosted by Josh Duhamel, the 26th Annual Nickelodeon Kids Choice Awards may have been the slimiest ever…and who knew Duhamel could dance?!

Duhamel showed off some “Pitbull” moves in a pre-taped opening, and wasn’t afraid to shake it all over the stage in various getups: a wrestler’s onesie, suits and sneakers, and Spongebob Squarepants’ necktie and flood pants. He even dared to don a bandage dress and sport a baby bump in tribute to his pregnant wife Fergie.

Johnny Depp and Kristen Stewart avoided slime – mostly – while picking up blimp-shaped trophies at the Kids Choice Awards on Saturday.

In his oversized hat, countless bracelets, and big smile, Depp worked his usual look while telling the kids, “Thank you for being you, you’re the future.”

The “Dark Shadows” star won as favorite movie actor at the 26th annual awards extravaganza, while the “Twilight” leading lady was selected as favorite movie actress and female butt-kicker.

“Dude, I was too much of a coward to accept this,” she said embracing the slime slathered on the podium at the University of Southern California’s Galen Center.

KStew recalled a shirt she used to wear as a tot that read “Kick Butt First, Take Names Later” while accepting the blimp for Favorite Female Buttkicker, and added that the KCAs helped her realize her “kindergarten self.”

The pretty Twilight actress was gunged on stage when she went on stage to collect an award for best movie.

K-Stew was completely slimed in true Get Your Own Back style after scooping the Favorite Movie Actress for her role in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn: Part 2.

She collected the award from presenters Sandra Bullock and Neil Patrick Harris who weren’t safe from the green goo at the ceremony in Los Angeles.

When Victoria Justice and her castmates from “Victorious” took home honors for Favorite TV show, Justice teared up over the win thanking the fans for all their votes. How sweet!

Pitbull, who kicked off the award show with a performance complete with Christina Aguilera—and numerous mini-me’s—took on the first slime of evening just after his performance ended.

The pair was joined by young backup dancers resembling the smooth-headed rapper and blonde diva. At the end of the performance, Aguilera smashed a button, covering Pitbull and the dancers in the show’s signature green goo.

L.A. Lakers star Dwight Howard, Sandra Bullock, Neil Patrick Harris, and Nick Cannon. But Epic costars Josh Hutcherson and Amanda Seyfriend may have gotten it the worst—a very serious pelting!

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, who picked up the trophy for male butt-kicker, blasted a sumo-suited Nick Cannon and Duhamel with the goo. The first few rows of the audience were also doused.

Duhamel said a record-breaking 350 million votes had been cast for this year’s viewer-voted ceremony, which honors kids’ favorites in film, music, sports and TV, says the Huff Post.
