The kids spoke on Saturday, and they weren't fooling. The 19th Annual Nickelodeon Kids Choice Awards took place at UCLA's Pauley Pavilion, and some of TV's biggest stars got honored and slimed in the annual event.

In a show of just how far-ranging his talent is, Timberlake won with a massive, chest-rattling belch. A beaten Jackman could only look stunned as his face was spattered with cream pies.
The night wouldn't have been complete without the obligatory celebrity "sliming," a Nickelodeon tradition wherein green slime falls from the ...Read more
Jack Black, star of the films King Kong and Shallow Hal, has been named the host of the 19th annual Nickelodean Kids Choice Awards. The show, which will take place on April 1 in Los Angeles, gives out awards based on the votes of kids polled on Nick.com.

Nickelodeon's executive vice president of development and original programming, Marjorie Cohn, said Black was a natural fit for the show. "With Jack as host, the surprise factor is naturally elevated. Even we can hardly wait to see what will happen," she said in a statement.
Black is no stranger to working with kids: He scored a hit with the ...Read more
