The first award of the night at Nickelodeon’s Kids’ Choice Awards Saturday (April 2) was a bit of an upset, but shows the kids know good acting when they see it. Johnny Depp won Favorite Movie Actor for “Alice in Wonderland” beating out Jaden Smith in “The Karate Kid,” Dwayne Johnson in “Tooth Fairy,” and host Jack Black in “Gulliver’s Travels.”
“Thank you so much. This is truly a pleasure. It comes from you guys,” Depp says in his acceptance speech. “My apologies to Jack. It’s an honor to be in the same categories as these other nominees. I’m very happy to be here and I appreciate it. You guys are the future. Take good care of us.”
He then promptly thanked the future by turning the slime hose on the audience of kids, sliming them pretty thoroughly. Sorry, moms.
And to Black who not only had to keep a smile on his face after losing to Depp, but will also have to keep it for the entire show? We know. Awkward.
