Kids love Captain Jack Sparrow–Johnny Depp wins Kids' Choice Award

Nickelodeon’s 21st annual Kids’ Choice Awards were held in Los Angeles on Saturday night (March 29th), and Johnny Depp won the award as Favorite Movie Actor for his performance as Captain Jack Sparrow in PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: AT WORLD’S END. Although the film and co-star Keira Knightley were also nominated for Kids’ Choice Awards, they were edged out by ALVIN AND THE CHIPMUNKS (Favorite Film) and Jessica Alba (Favorite Movie Actress). Johnny Depp was not present at the ceremony, but AT WORLD’S END co-star Orlando Bloom was this year’s guest-green-slime recipient; Orlando and host Jack Black wound up covered in the green goo, and as always the young crowd was delighted.

The Zone thanks FANtasticJD for breaking the news. We congratulate JD on his victory; as there were more than 88 million votes cast in this year’s balloting, to be named Favorite Movie Actor is a considerable accomplishment. — Part-Time Poet
