Pop hunk Justin Timberlake was handed the ultimate award of his career on Saturday (12APR03) - a trophy for best celebrity burp.

The 'N Sync frontman, 22, received the honour at the 12th annual NICKELODEON Kids' Choice Awards at SANTA MONICA AIRPORT's BARKER HANGAR in California.

The singer proudly declared, "I take a lot of pride in my burping, and I'm really good at it. And you guys better be glad it wasn't a farting contest, 'cause I would have won that too."

But no such luck: that honour went to Matthew Lillard's posterior performance in Scooby-Doo.

Actor Will Smith was this year's (03) recipient of the WANNABE AWARD, given annually to a celebrity role model.

Guests at the show, hosted by ROSIE O'DONNELL, included Brad Pitt, Michelle Pfeiffer, Mike Myers, Britney Spears, Sylvester Stallone, Damon Wayans and Jim Carrey, who put in a surprise appearance - and ended up covered in slime.
