Nickelodeon made a splash on the other side of the Atlantic on Saturday, debuting the U.K. edition of its Kids' Choice Awards in London.

Notably absent were any big-name celebrities being doused in Nick's traditional green slime. That, of course, was good news for Emma Watson, who also was named Nickelodeon's Best Movie Actress.

"This is so cool. I'm so thrilled," the 17-year-old Harry Potter star said.

Watson – who was wearing a gold-sequined top and Diesel jeans – beat out Cameron Diaz, Dakota Fanning and Keira Knightley for the award.

Online Voting

For the past few months, kids have been voting online for their top choices in 16 different categories, including Best Movie Actor (Johnny Depp), Best Sports Person (David Beckham), Best Female Singer (Avril Lavigne) and Best Movie (The Simpsons Movie).

Although they were unable to attend, High School Musical stars Zac Efron and Ashley Tisdale won Best TV Actor and Actress. The Greenie Award – created to encourage kids to recycle – was accepted by Nancy Drew's Emma Roberts, who pledged to become more environmentally conscious.

Jamie Lynn Spears was a no-show, but she did send a video message saying, "I'm so sad I'm missing out on all the fun you guys are having there."
