LOS ANGELES (AP) - “iCarly” has downloaded the first blimp-shaped trophy at the Kids Choice Awards. The Web-centric comedy picked up the award for favorite TV show at the 22nd annual slime-filled Nickelodeon spectacle at UCLA’s Pauley Pavilion.

Other early winners Saturday are “Guitar Hero World Tour” for video game and “Wizards of Waverly Place” star Selena Gomez as TV actress.

The hijinks kicked off with host and “Race to Witch Mountain” star Dwayne Johnson zip-lining over the audience of screaming teens and tweens into a “slime temple.” Johnson proceeded to spray the first row with gooey green slime. Last year’s host, Jack Black, picked up the trophy for favorite voice from an animated film for “Kung Fu Panda.”
