Small Fans Honor Big Stars at
Kids' Choice Awards
It was slime time in Hollywood Saturday night for Will
Ferrell. The green goo, a trademark prize, was the highlight
of the raucous 18th Annual Nickelodeon Kids' Choice
Awards, which also starred Johnny Depp, Usher and Jamie
"Extra" teamed up with C.J. Sanders,
who played little Ray in the movie "Ray,"
for the orange carpet arrivals. And in addition
to meeting the biggest and brightest stars of
film, music and TV, C.J. even got a little advice,
"I'm living an example that if you believe
your dreams, you can succeed," Usher told
The Kids' Choice Awards also marked a big anniversary
weekend for presenters Justin Timberlake and Cameron
Diaz. The couple first met at the award show two years
Meanwhile, Will Smith sent fans into frenzy when
he touched down on the orange carpet, and Halle
Berry signed autographs for her pint-sized fans.
The Oscar winner even broke some news to "Extra"
about her dream role. "I want to be on 'Desperate
Housewives,'" she revealed. "I am a
'Desperate Housewife,' I'd fit right in with those
But Halle cleared up one rumor: she is desperate
to become a mom. But is it true she's actually
looking for a donor to have a child of her own?
"Why, would you like to apply?" she
"Extra" also put Jada Pinkett Smith
on rumor control. One British paper has reported
Jada would let Will cheat on her, as long as he
told her. So is it true? "No, that's not
true at all," Jada said. "Will's just
basically saying that if he ever decided, hypothetically,
to do something, I would know about it before
you guys did. But it better be hypothetical!"
And big Willy, who opened the show, was among
the night's big winners, nabbing the Kids Choice
for favorite voice in an animated movie.
Queen Latifah was named this year's Celebrity Kids Wannabe,
"American Idol" was the Kids' Choice for Best
TV Show and Usher also took home top honors.
So Usher, how does this compare to all those Grammys?
"There is no comparison," he replied.
"Because the kids make up this one, and it's
all about the kids."
