Say what you will about Tim Burton's DARK SHADOWS (and we've said a hell of a lot) but Johnny Depp's performance was among the film's high points. Given a better script and the dialogue surrounding the film would a lot more positive, but we're left with a handful of fun performances, some terrific production design and enough missed opportunities to fill a baseball season for the Chicago Cubs.
So, it's kind of bittersweet to see Depp named "Favorite Movie Actor" for DARK SHADOWS, even one as vapid as the Nickleodeon Kids' Choice Awards. You can see video highlights of the awards "ceremony" below. Hopefully, this news won't open too many wounds for those of you still recovering from last year's Burton/Depp debacle.
