The Oscars may boast the grandest red carpet, and the Golden Globes have the booze, but the Kids’ Choice Awards have something that no other award show can compete with: celebrities coated in green slime. For 25 years, Hollywood’s biggest stars — from Harrison Ford to Johnny Depp to Justin Timberlake — have somewhat willingly been doused in the green goo that pours, erupts, and oozes from the stage at Nickelodeon’s annual celebration of its viewers’ favorite performers. Tonight at 8 p.m. ET, Will Smith — a 10-time KCA winner who was baptized into Gang Green back in 2000 — hosts the event’s 25th anniversary show. Of course, you know the difference between the Men in Black superstar and other mere mortals? He makes being slimed look good.
Take a look at some of the memorable messes in recent KCA history, and then check in on Smith’s hardcore training for hosting.
Who do you expect to win tonight? More importantly, who’s going home green — besides Kermit the Frog, that is? Would they dare target the First Lady?
