Johnny Depp nominated for Kid's Choice Award as Favorite Movie Actor!

Johnny Depp received two nominations for the 2006 Nickelodeon Kid’s Choice awards; Johnny is nominated as Favorite Movie Actor for his performance as Willy Wonka in CHARLIE AND THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY (which is nominated as Favorite Movie); Johnny also received a nomination as Favorite Voice from an Animated Movie for his work as Victor Van Dort in TIM BURTON’S CORPSE BRIDE. Alas, Johnny was prevented from scoring a nomination trifecta for his trio of films released in 2005 as the Kid’s Choice voters are all too young to see THE LIBERTINE.

The 19th Annual Nickelodeon Kid’s Choice Awards will be broadcast live from UCLA’s Pauley Pavilion on Saturday, April 1st, from 8:00-9:30 p.m. Eastern time (tape delayed to the West Coast), and will be seen in more than 200 million households. Jack Black will host this year’s show and will no doubt keep the proceedings perfectly in key with the April Fool’s Day holiday spirit–plenty of jokes and sight gags, and guests drenched in buckets of Nickelodeon’s signature green slime. Deppheads fondly remember last year’s Kid’s Choice Awards, when Johnny Depp was the surprise guest honored with a gloriously messy green sliming.
