Honoring kids' favorite athletes, teams and sports moments in one big, slimy sports celebration, the awards show was hosted by Michael Strahan and featured star players including David Beckham, Kevin Durant and Henrik Lundqvist.

Nickelodeon brought the slime out once again — but this time, athletes were the target on Thursday, with host Michael Strahan being the first one to get blasted before any of the winners were even announced!

The cable network's inaugural Kids' Choice Sports Awards aired live at 8 p.m. ET/PT from UCLA's Pauley Pavilion in Los Angeles.
