Yesterday, the Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Awards hit Los Angeles, for all those young and young at heart. Despite the rumours, Britney Spears didn't show – but that certainly didn't stop the fun! Orlando Bloom, host Jack Black and Harrison Ford had Nick's trademark gunge poured all over them, Miley Cyrus performed to the delight of the tween audience and many TV, movie and music stars showed, including Will Smith, Cameron Diaz, Rihanna, Usher, Ashton Kutcher and Janet Jackson.
Big winners were Miley, who won the Female Singer and TV Actress (for Hannah Montana) blimps, and Drake Bell, who picked up his third TV Actor award, and won the TV Show blimp with his castmates from Drake & Josh. I love seeing the stars out with their families at this event each year – Amber Valetta, Usher, Will, Chris Brown and more showed up with their kids / siblings / nephews / young friends to give them a great afternoon. Oh, and not forgetting Jessica Alba, who brought her growing baby bump along to pick up her award.
