Stalkward: And Then Miley Cried

Whomever set up the barricades at the 2009 Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Awards will likely not be returning for the next decade due to what you'll witness below at the 10-second mark.

Though not the scale of last week's America's Next Top Model audition stampede, the toppling over of about a dozen children is just enough to be laughable without seeming too insensitive-- at least, that's what I told myself as I rewound the five-second segment thrice (not including the fourth slo-mo look).

Here's what I ascertained from my multiple viewings. Miranda Cosgrove of iCarly (it's fine that you have no clue what either of those proper nouns is referring to) feigns surprise about winning "Favorite TV Show" at the only awards ceremony more staged than MTV's Video Music Awards. As she rushes the stage and holds out her hands for some obligatory fan high fives, a whole heap of them bust down the metal barriers, trying to escape after finally realizing the hold Nickelodeon has had on them likely since the original air date of Eureeka's Castle. After the only intelligent children in the arena eat it on the ground, Miranda clearly pauses-- but her intention isn't so apparent. Her outstretched arm either signifies she wanted more congratulatory contact or is trying to help out the fallen children. But then, she proceeds to the stage to take home her blimp, indicating that her actions were probably motivated by the former, which is fair considering those kids were literally slimey.

PS- As for the second most ambiguous and also unintentionally humorous moment of the show, Miley Cyrus cried upon receiving her award for Favorite Female Singer... for the second year in a row.

Whether this is genuine emotion or acting, I'm torn. But either way, I'm impressed... her cheek's get even puffier as the tears roll down 'em!
