MUMBAI: Rock group Green Day, Will Smith, Lindsay Lohan and Chris Rock were among those who captured Kids' Choice Blimp Awards at Nickelodeon's 19th Annual Kids' Choice Awards

US kids honoured their favourites at this year's inimitable kudos/mess-slime fest hosted on April Fools' Day by actor Jack Black at the University of Califronia.

Smith was voted as Favorite Movie Actor for Hitch. This marked Smith's fifth Blimp. Lindsay Lohan nabbed the award for Favourite Movie Actress for Herbie Fully Loaded. Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire won for Favourite Movie.

Chris Rock clinched the award for Favorite Voice in an Animated Movie for Madagascar. Nick's own SpongeBob SquarePants absorbed honours for the fourth consecutive year as Favourite Cartoon. Drake & Josh won for Favoyrite TV show. Lance Armstrong scored a Blimp for Favourite Athlete.

In music, Green Day picked up a pair for Music Group and for the song Wake Me Up When September Ends. Jesse McCartney and the winner of the first edition of American Idol Kelly Clarkson won for male and female singer

A highlight of the show was a aerial skiing slime stunt. US Olympic Freestyle Aerial Skier Ryan St. Onge nailed a gravity-defying freestyle ski stunt off a snowy slope, plunging into a 10,000-gallon tank of Nickelodeon's signature green slime.

Skateboarding Slime Diver Tony Hawk hosted the stunt.To the crowd's delight, slime flowed freely throughout the show, targetting kids in the mosh pit as well as celebrities. An elated Adam Sandler got down and messy. In a climatic moment of mess, slime showers splashed down on a surprised Robin Williams drenching him from head to toe. Then in a "gotcha" moment, the impish Williams took the reins and turned to spread the goo, turning Jack Black a gleeful green.
