One Direction cleans up at Kids’ Choice

Robert Downey Jr. turned inspirational speaker at the Kids’ Choice Awards, Pharrell set another fashion trend, David Blaine lost his head during a slime-induced illusion, One Direction and Jennifer Lawrence cleaned up, and the green goo bath finally caught up with Mark Wahlberg – thanks to some unlikely slimers.

Nickelodeon’s 27th annual awards show was among its more entertaining, opening with a sprawling and colorful Todrick Hall-choreographed performance and closing with Wahlberg’s eventual sliming Saturday night in Los Angeles. Along the way, One Direction won two awards, producer Dan Schneider won the show’s first lifetime achievement award, and Robert Downey Jr. got real after winning best male buttkicker.

“This is the highest honor yet bestowed on me – I’m grateful, humble, the whole deal,” the “Iron Man” star said. “You know I wasn’t always a buttkicker. In fact, life has kicked my proverbial butt countless times in many ways for many years, until I decided one day to start kicking back. Now look at me!”

He slipped in a plug for “Avengers 2” before advising, “Remember, when life is kicking your butt, never forget to kick it back right in the face.”

One Direction won favorite music group and favorite song for “Story of My Life,” Lawrence won favorite movie actress and favorite female buttkicker, Selena Gomez was named favorite female singer, Adam Sandler won favorite male actor, and Kevin Hart took favorite funny star at the fan-voted awards.
