Jennette Mccurdy arrived at the Sydney Entertainment Centre on October 7, 2011 in Sydney, Australia to co-host the 2011 Nickelodeon Kid’s Choice Awards with iCarly’s Nathan Kress. Much to her surprise, she won the LOL Award! She emerged from a large spaghetti taco to receive her award and made her acceptance speech:

This is unreal! Wow, uh I feel really obligated to say something funnyâ€¦ I did just pop out of a taco though so hopefully that will suffice. Um, thank you so much to Dan Schneider for being a creative genius and one of my best friends! Um, thank you to our incredible writers for writing hilarious jokes! To my crew and cast mates! The lovely shelia, Miranda and the uh unruly blokes, Nathan and Jerry and Noah! Um, thank you to Seema and Paula and everybody at Nickelodeon! To my mom for being, my biggest inspiration and for teaching me to find the humor in all things, and to THE FANS! This award goes to anybody who has ever chortled, chuckled or giggled or laughed or guffawed at me, I thank you so much! Um, if I was able to give you laughs then thats the greatest thing in the world because laughters the best sound I have ever heard. Uh, thank you guys! Thank you Australia for your kindness and your hospitality and your accents! AUSTRALIA! WOOOOO! WOOOO! WOOOOO! WOOOOOO!
She is now officially listed as an award winner on the Australian Nickelodeon site:
She then tweeted soon after winning the award and getting slimed:
Had absolutely one of the best days ever hosting the Aussie KCA. I can’t believe I won the LOL Award! THANK YOU AUSTRALIA, FOR YOUR KINDNESS
On a sadder note, according to The West Australian, Jennette’s album is not due to be released until early of next year.
Like many tween television stars, the 19-year-old has launched a music career and while she may not have found commercial success in Australia yet, her loyal iCarly fans will be eagerly awaiting her next musical steps. She has a new album due out early next year
