For those who care, here is the complete KCA winners list, from the PR site, via Toonzone. Emphasis and commentary, beyond the headline, is mine.

Kids Cast Record-breaking 90 Million Votes for Favorites in 18 Categories
Leonardo DiCaprio Receives First-ever Nickelodeon Big Green Help Award, Presented by Cameron Diaz

Host Dwayne Johnson and The Jonas Brothers Doused in Biggest, Greenest Sliming in Show's History; Will Ferrell Sets World Record with First-Ever Slip n' Slime Stunt

Los Angeles, Calif. – March 28, 2009 – Lucky stars Beyoncé Smith, Vanessa Hudgens, Jack Black, Selena Gomez, The Jonas Brothers, Jesse McCartney and Miley Cyrus captured the coveted orange Blimp trophies at Nickelodeon's 22nd Annual Kids' Choice Awards live telecast, Saturday, March 28, (8-9:30 p.m. ET/tape delay PT). Hosted by Dwayne Johnson, the awards show at UCLA's Pauley Pavilion honored kids' favorite TV, movies, music and sports stars, and delighted the crowd with torrential superstar slime showers. Will Ferrell set the world record for the first-ever "Slip n' Slime" by traveling over 200 ft. on the green goop, The Jonas Brothers got a sliming like no other, Jesse McCartney was soaked with slime and Hugh Jackman and Sandra Bullock were surprised with the green goo. Going green, too, albeit in a different manner, Leonardo DiCaprio accepted the first-ever Nickelodeon Big Green Help Award for his environmental efforts from last year's Wannabe Award recipient, Cameron Diaz.

Kids honored their favorites by casting over 90 million votes March 2-28 in 18 categories. Votes were cast via and via Nick's new mobile website (

Bright orange blimps were bestowed upon Will for Favorite Movie Actor, Vanessa Hudgens for Favorite Movie Actress, High School Musical 3 for Favorite Movie and Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa for Favorite Animated Movie. Last year's host Jack Black clinched a blimp for Favorite Voice from an Animated Movie for his vocals as Po in Kung Fu Panda. Top TV awards went to iCarly as Favorite TV Show, American Idol as Favorite Reality Show, SpongeBob SquarePants as Favorite Cartoon, and Dylan Sprouse and Selena Gomez collected Blimps for Favorite TV Actor and Favorite TV Actress, respectively. In music, Favorite Female Singer went to Miley Cyrus, Favorite Male Singer to Jesse McCartney, Favorite Music Group to The Jonas Brothers, and Favorite Song went to Beyoncé for "Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)". Peyton Manning scored for Favorite Male Athlete, Candace Parker for Favorite Female Athlete, the Twilight series won for Favorite Book, and Guitar Hero World Tour won for Favorite Videogame.

In a show highlight, Leonardo DiCaprio accepted the first-ever Big Green Help Award for his extensive environmental efforts. Dedicated environmentalist Cameron Diaz, last year's recipient of The Wannabe Award, a former Kids' Choice Awards host (2004) and Burp Award winner (2001), presented him the award. In accepting, DiCaprio exclaimed, "We need all of you, the next generation, to be aware. You're the future".

The Jonas Brothers joined the elite ranks of superstars slimed when they helped Johnson fulfill his goal of being the best Kids' Choice Awards host ever. The mega-star trio finally found the key – the musical key of G (for green, of course) – that released the secret slime from the volcanic Slime Pyramid, spraying the stage with the most goo the Kids' Choice Awards has seen.

While they weren't getting saturated with slime, The Jonas Brothers rocked the house with their hit songs, "SOS" and "Burnin' Up". The Pussycat Dolls got the audience moving earlier in the show with rousing performances of "Jai Ho" and "When I Grow Up".

Noisier and more animated than ever, competitors for The Burp Award – judged on the Orange Carpet by iCarly's Jerry Trainor – were all Nickelodeon animated stars. Nick star Victoria Justice (Zoey 101, Spectacular) traveled by submarine all the way down to Bikini Bottom, where she encountered burp award hopefuls SpongeBob SquarePants and Patrick Squidward. And when Trainor declared The Penguins of Madagascar's Rico the best burper, the animated champ joined a roster of past proud best belchers including Cameron Diaz, Jessica Alba and Steve Irwin (shared honor), Justin Timberlake (two-time winner) and Hugh Jackman.

And the voting didn't stop there. During the award show, viewers were asked to vote live on which skill Johnson should learn. Almost 600,00 viewers opted to see him learn how to dress like Miley Cyrus, who was on hand for the tutorial, beating out learning how to sing opera or knit.

The star-studded telecast featured additional celebrity participants, including: Paula Abdul, David Archuleta, John Cena, Lily Collins, Miranda Cosgrove, Chase Crawford, Miley Cyrus, Zac Efron, America Ferrera, Megan Fox, Shia LaBeouf, George Lopez, Keke Palmer, Josh Peck, Chris Pine, Amy Poehler, Queen Latifah, Emma Roberts, Chris Rock, Ben Stiller, Marlon Wayans, Owen Wilson, Alex Wolff, Nat Wolff and many others.

Special programming began early on Nickelodeon with a Friday night pre-show starring the cast of Nick hit True Jackson, VP. Immediately preceding the award telecast, Nickelodeon kicked off the big night with a unique pre-show hosted by Lily Collins, Pick Boy and JJ featuring celebrity interviews on the Orange Carpet.

On the night of the live show, the KCA site served as the interactive broadband home base giving kids an insider's look at the entire live event. Coverage began at 7 p.m. (ET) with an exclusive one-hour live pre-show webcast from the Orange Carpet hosted by iCarly's Jennette McCurdy and Nathan Kress.

Nickelodeon kicked up the "green" factor a notch at this year's Kids' Choice Awards by giving actor Leonardo DiCaprio the network's first Big Green Help award at the March 28 ceremony.

Out with the celebration of mostly kid-friendly entertainment choices and in with eco-warrior propaganda.

DiCaprio, dubbed the "coolest guy on this hot planet" by presenter Cameron Diaz, used boilerplate fear-mongering in his acceptance speech to recruit more kids to his environmentalist cause:

I want to take a moment and ask you kids something. Do you like this planet that we live on? Is this an awesome place to live or what? I've got news for you. It's the only home we have, and right now, our mother, our mother, all of our mothers, mother earth, is hurting. And she needs a generation of thoughtful, caring and active kids like all of you, to protect her for the future.

The "Big Green Help" award is an extension of the same-named eco-warrior training ground Nick launched last year. A press release about Nick's new award reveals as much, "The Big Green Help aims to fashion a new generation of environmentalists for whom green will become not only a cause, but a way of life."

The Culture and Media Institute previously reported that "The Big Green Help is filled to the brim with throbbing dance music, bright colors (green most prominent, of course), grinning teen celebrities and feel-good phrases. Nick is indoctrinating kids into the secular cult of environmentalism, and it wants them to indoctrinate you in turn."

DiCaprio encouraged the current crop of the tiny-environmentalist set to spread the green gospel. "So I'm going to ask all of you to keep learning, keep learning about this great planet we all live on, get your friends, get your parents, get your teachers involved. Let them know how important it is to save this planet," he implored.

1998's Teen Dreamboat?

DiCaprio appears to be an odd choice to accept an award at a ceremony that's all about promoting current kiddy pop culture. Yes, pictures of DiCaprio graced the bedroom walls of many tweens and teens in the late 1990s following his romantic roles as Romeo in "Romeo + Juliet" and ill-fated Jack Dawson in "Titanic."

But five of DiCaprio's last seven major studio productions have been rated R. His latest, this year's "Revolutionary Road," is about a dissatisfied, 1950s suburban couple, and explores such adult themes as marital infidelity and abortion.

Besides his decidedly mature acting work, the last time DiCaprio made news off the silver screen was in 2000, when he caused a stir by interviewing President Bill Clinton about environmental issues.

Safe to say then that DiCaprio isn't exactly in demand with a demographic currently enthralled with the bubble-gum pop of Disney stars Miley Cyrus and The Jonas Brothers.

Connection to Radical Environmentalists

Nickelodeon noted DiCaprio's work as a "tireless promoter of green causes and events, and an avid environmentalist" in the press release announcing the first-ever "Big Green Help Award," all of which surely played a role in his win. Diaz highlighted DiCaprio's efforts in her introduction:

He talks about these things to anyone and everyone who will listen. But he doesn't just talk the talk, he walks the walk. He drives an electric car, recycles, and lives in a solar-energy powered home. In other words, he doesn't ask anyone to do anything that he isn't already doing himself.

Diaz failed to mention DiCaprio's position as a Trustee to the Natural Resources Defense Council, Nick's partner in its "green campaign. Nick did however acknowledge DiCaprio's connection to the group in the fourth paragraph of the previously cited press release.

NRDC, as CMI noted in January, is an environmentalist group that takes extreme positions on the effects of global warming and the role humans have played in contributing to it. The organization promotes big-government action as a solution to the perceived problem of global warming, including "new laws, regulations and technology mandates for industry," including regulation of the "appliances and equipment in our homes and offices to reduce our electricity needs."

What are the kids learning?

DiCaprio urged the audience to "keep learning" by going to Nick's "Big Green Help" site. But with partners such as the NRDC, the only thing kids are learning is that global warming is a fact.

Nothing on the site encourages critical thinking. Nick fails to provide links to educational resources, except to organizations such as NRDC and the Boys and Girls Club of America. No sources are cited for such facts as "About 20% of CO2 emissions in the United States comes from cars. That's a lot."

Instead, kids are treated to games in which they can battle a CO2 monster and message boards that allow them to sound-off about the latest environmental crimes witnessed and how to nag more people to join their cause. They're told to "turn off your lights, computer and electronics when you're not using them."

Funny, watching less Nickelodeon and spending less time on the "Big Green Help" site are not listed as ways to "stop the flow...of the Earth's energy and precious natural resources."

Nickelodeon and DiCaprio proved they don't want to teach kids; they want to indoctrinate them. They had a built-in audience of kids on Saturday night to preach environmentalism to and didn't waste the opportunity.
