The 2011 Australian Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards! are almost upon us.

Everyone is getting ready to hit the orange carpet at the mega event.  It all takes place at the Sydney Entertainment Centre tonight. We've found out from our spies about a ton of great performers confirmed to take to the stage!

Joining Gold Coast teen idol and triple-nominee Cody Simpson will be ‘Aussie Idol’s’ Stan Walker, ‘X-Factor’ judge Natalie Bassingthwaighte, ‘Australia’s Got Talent’ winner Jack Vidgen, hip hop dance group Justice Crew and shuffle superstar Timomatic!

Even WWE’s outspoken CM Punk will taking to the stage, having caught a plane just for Australian fans (and viewers we suspect).

We also heard something about magician Cosentino to hit the stage.

Joining the impressive list of previously announced presenters - including Matt Preston, Guy Sebastian, Shannon Noll, Luke Jacobz, Bindi and Robert Irwin, Samantha Harris, Erin McNaught, Nathan Jolliffe and Tyler Atkins, Daniel MacPherson, Commando, Josh Thomas and Ellyse Perry - will be ‘Home And Away’ stars Samara Weaving, Rebecca Breeds, David Jones Roberts and Luke Mitchell. 

Hosted by 'iCarly' stars Jennette McCurdy and Nathan Kress, Australia’s biggest slime fest is also in the works.

Expect fun, and also expect the unexpected. Stay tuned for news you won't find anywhere else!

Nick Marketing Blur Reads...

The road to slime has begun and the 2011 Australian Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Awards will once again be the biggest party for kids on the planet! Featuring celebrity presenters, hot music acts, surprise reveals and gallons of gooey slime, this is the hottest family entertainment ticket in town!

New award categories will this year see KCA celeb veterans Rove McManus, Guy Sebastian, Natalie Bassingthwaighte and Bindi and Robert Irwin compete to be inducted into the HALL OF SLIME, while breakthrough Aussie stars Cody Simpson and Samara Weaving battle it out against American npminees Willow Smith and Victoria Justice for the SUPER FRESH award.

In a new and highly contentious hot topic category, will it be PM Julia Gillard or Opposition Leader Tony Abbott that gets voted by kids as the 'most green' to take out the SLIME MINISTER? And, will they be brave enough to accept the nation's dare to prove how green they really are - literally - and be SLIMED live on the KCA stage?

What's Your Number' sex comedy with Anna Faris wows, by Eva Rinaldi - 7th October 2011

What a year of raunch. Enter No Strings Attached (Natalie Portman and Ashton Kutcher) and then Friends with Benefits (Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis), now What's Your Number, another sexy and fun Hollywood comedy centered on a platonic relationship between two 20 year olds.

Anna Faris stars opposite Chris Evans, last seen on the big screen as Captain America. The two good lookers nurture their friendship, hang out in their underwear lots, and talks a great deal about the opposite sex.

Audiences soon will ponder how many sexual partners Faris' character Ally has enjoyed.

Faris, now 34, has become quite the go-to girl in Hollywood for roles requiring sexy and on the edge laughs.

The talented young lady told news media "It's important for me to appeal to the girls. Women want to see all kinds of women on screen, not just the really ambitious types we see a lot of, who are always trying to manage everything. We also need to see lost women, too. That's why I liked this role of Ally. She seemed real to me. She's messy, sarcastic, and she drinks a lot."

Faris loved the main message of the story. "This is a woman who's changing herself for everyone around her. She's trying to figure out who she is in terms of how people see her. Hopefully, the movie is about finding yourself."

Faris is married to actor Chris Pratt (from sitcom Parks and Recreation), who also features in What's Your Number as one of her boyfriends. "I loved working with my husband although it was pressure in that I was really nervous to act in front of him because I respect him so much. I suppose I don't mind strangers judging me, but it's tough when it's your partner," she says. "Actually, I was hoping he'd be a little jealous of Chris Evans, but that didn't happen. I thought, 'Finally, I'll have two men fighting over me'."

What's Your Number? opens next Thursday in Australia and stay tuned to see photos of Anna Faris on the red carpet in Sydney.
