Kristen Stewart was the big winner at the 26th annual Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Awards held at the University of Southern California's Galen Center in Los Angeles.

The 22-year-old actress won in the favourite movie actress category (The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2), beating strong contenders including The Hunger Games' Jennifer Lawrence, Journey 2: The Mysterious Island's Vanessa Hudgens, and The Avengers' Scarlett Johansson. She also won the female butt-kicker (Snow White and the Huntsman) award.

"Dude, I was too much of a coward to accept this," she said after receiving the award.

Stewart, who looked stunning in a blue Osman dress, got covered in the green slime after she hugged presenters Sandra Bullock and Neil Patrick Harris, who were slimed before presenting the award.

Christina Aguilera and Pitbull gave a power-packed performance with their duet Feel This Moment. There was a surprise for the rapper at the end of the performance, as the 32-year-old singer hit a button, covering Pitbull and the dancers in green slime.
