Though nominated only in one category at the 21st Annual Nickelodeon's Kids' Choice Awards, the 20th Century Fox's comedy animation film about three singing chipmunks "Alvin and the Chipmunks" didn't come home disappointed on Saturday, March 29. The Tim Hill-directed film has been dubbed kids' favorite movie beating out three other strong contenders, including "Pirates of the Caribbean: At Worlds End".
By nailing the favorite movie prize, the Jason Lee starring movie managed to stop "Pirates" from landing multiple awards at the event hosted by comedian Jack Black. Further, beside losing from "Chipmunks", "Pirates" beauty Keira Knightley has to once again be satisfied with being nominated for Favorite Movie Actress prize as the award was given to Jessica Alba for "Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer". Knightley was also nominated for Favorite Movie Actress at the 2007 Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Awards, but lost to Dakota Fanning.
Despite the fact that "Pirates" was unable to land two of its three nods, the Jerry Bruckheimer-produced blockbuster movie has once again brought the title of Favorite Movie Actor to Johnny Depp. Depp has became two-time kids' favorite actor for his role as flamboyant and eccentric pirate Captain Jack Sparrow in the last two installments of the "Pirates" movies, "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest" and "At Worlds End".
Another film which shared similar disappointment as "Pirates" was "Shrek the Third". The DreamWorks' comedy animation featuring Mike Myers and Cameron Diaz, which was nominated for Favorite Animated Movie as well as Favorite Voice from an Animated Movie, only managed to bring home one kudo at the night for one of its actors Eddie Murphy. Meanwhile, in the category of Animation film, the Ogre-tale film was lost to the rat-turned-chef tale "Ratatouille".
