Hollywood's A-listers have gone home covered in slime, following the 21st Annual Nickelodeon Kids Choice Awards.

The night's big winner was 15-year-old Miley Cyrus, star of Disney's Hannah Montana show, who received favourite TV actress and favourite singer.

Johnny Depp was named favourite actor, while Diaz won an inspiration award.

The "Wannabe" prize goes to a celebrity role model who children look up to.

Diaz used her time at the winner's podium to promote environmental causes, saying to the audience of children: "You're going to change the world.

The actress added that the Wannabe prize was "the biggest honour of my entire life". She previously won a Kids Choice award for burping in 2001.

Other winners on the night included Eddie Murphy, who picked up favourite voice from an animated movie for Shrek the Third, American Idol, which won favourite reality show and the Jonas Brothers for favourite music group.

Balloon popping

Teenage heartthrob Drake Bell was the recipient of two prizes - favourite TV actor and favourite TV show for sitcom Drake and Josh.

But the show was mainly about anarchic fun.

R&B singer Akon crashed a dune buggy into giant containers of green slime, while Usher blasted a sumo wrestler with goo fired from a cannon.

German supermodel Heidi Klum, meanwhile, flew from the roof on a bungee cord and had to pop balloons with a spike attached to her backside.

The ceremony also featured a host of celebrities burping the tune to the Village People's YMCA.

Host Jack Black announced that 88 million votes had been cast this year, more than twice last year's record number of 40 million.

The show concluded with Black and Orlando Bloom sitting in chairs high above the audience being drenched with what Black claimed was "27 million gallons" of green slime.
