LOS ANGELES —
The awards show isn't much more than an excuse to slime some of today's top stars, and first-time host Wahlberg executed several slimings as he successfully escaped the green goo for the show's first 80 minutes. His first victims were actress Kaley Cuoco and Pharrell, who chose fortuitously to wear a pair of bright yellow SpongeBob SquarePants pajamas instead of his now-trademark poofy fedora.
It was Hart who eventually tricked Wahlberg into the goo, with an assist from the actor's three young children.
"I can't believe my own kids turned on me," Wahlberg shouted.
