THE KARATE KID’ WINS BIG AT KIDS’ CHOICE AWARDS


The story of “The Karate Kid” has charmed and inspired a whole new generation of young ‘uns, as the 2011 Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards has crowned (or “blimped,” rather) the 2010 re-imagining of the now-classic 1984 film as Favorite Movie.
The KCA also “blimped” Jackie Chan, who stars as the wise (and butt-kicking) martial arts mentor, Mr. Han, as Favorite Buttkicker.

(Let’s face it — it would be hard to beat Jackie Chan in such a category, no matter who you are.)
Jack Black hosted the 2011 KCA Awards with his usual boundless energy and devilish grin, arriving at the ceremony in a monster truck and kicking things off with a rollicking rendition of “I’ve Got a Feeling,” which led to a dance session with the Black Eyed Peas.
Black also proved to be a good sport when he lost the Blimp for Favorite Movie Actor to Johnny Depp, who won for his performance as the Mad Hatter in “Alice in Wonderland.” Depp showed his appreciation by taking a giant hose and unleashing gallons of the trademark Nickelodeon green slime upon the screaming audience.
Jim Carrey closed the evening by announcing that he won the Favorite Actor of All Time in the Universe Award. He was then promptly slimed.
