March 29th, 2009 Posted in Entertainment

“High School Musical 3: Senior Year” graduated with honors Saturday at the Kids’ Choice Awards.

The Disney musical was selected as the favorite movie by audience votes at the 22nd annual slime-filled Nickelodeon spectacle held inside UCLA’s Pauley Pavilion. “High School Musical” star Vanessa Hudgens was also selected as the favorite movie actress.

Winners included “iCarly” for TV show, “American Idol” for reality show, Jonas Brothers for music group and “Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa” for animated movie. Jack Black arrived in motorcycle sidecar to pick up his award for favorite voice from an animated film for “Kung Fu Panda.”

Miley Cyrus was brought to tears when she was announced as favorite female singer.

Over 90 million viewer votes were cast at Nick’s Web site. Instead of envelopes, blimp recipients were revealed from inside spy-like steel briefcases. Some held surprises throughout the show. Before presenters Sandra Bullock and Hugh Jackman announced the “Twilight” series as favorite book, a briefcase doused the pair with green slime.

The green theme took on an entirely different meaning when Cameron Diaz presented her “Gangs of New York” co-star Leonardo DiCaprio with the first-ever Big Green Help Award. The “Titanic” and “Revolutionary Road” actor was selected to receive the green blimp trophy because of his contribution and promotion of environmental issues.

Other blimp recipients were “Wizards of Waverly Place” star Selena Gomez for TV actress, “The Suite Life of Zack and Cody” star Dylan Sprouse for TV actor, “SpongeBob SquarePants” for cartoon, Jesse McCartney for male singer, Beyonce’s “Single Ladies” for song, Will Smith for movie actor, “Guitar Hero World Tour” for video game, Candace Parker for female athlete and Peyton Manning for male athlete.
