It was a case of tossing aside network alignments yesterday on the Orange Carpet at the Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards 2008.
As Dean Geyer and Toni Pearen showed, there were no network rivalries before the cameras or the screaming fans at the annual awards show.
At Hi-Sense Arena yesterday in Melbourne, the carpet was a bit like one of those cattle runs, with the stars shepherded by publicists in between fans and media. It was a delicate act trying to please everybody.
Out for the day were Bindi Irwin & minders, Australian Idol finalists (the remaining ones anyway), Mike Goldman & Bree Amer, Rebel Wilson & Lulu McClatchy, Rove, Natalie Bassingthwaighte, Ricki-Lee, Lincoln Lewis, Blue Water High, Pippa Black, John Cena, Operator Please, Shane Warne, Demelza Reveley, Charlotte Dawson, Project Runway’s Petrova and a pinkless Brian McFadden.
