The 2011 Kids' Choice Awards: A Primer

by Rich Keller, posted Apr 2nd 2011 9:00AM
Jack Black, Kids Choice AwardsTonight marks the 24th annual Kids' Choice Awards on Nickelodeon. As usual, it's going to be packed with movie, television and music luminaries you normally wouldn't think would appear on a kids' award show. But that's the exciting thing about it -- it gives kids a chance to see people up-close who normally don't interact with people their age.

Here's what to look forward to -- in addition to several important Hollywood people getting slimed -- when the award show airs at 8PM ET on Nick.

The Host: Jack Black will be officiating this year's ceremony; the third time the 41-year-old actor has hosted the show since 2006. Jack really gets into his duties with his usual amped-up, kid-at-heart attitude, as seen in this clip from his "press conference" about the awards show.

Kathy Griffin wants a Tony, which is probably why she's heading to Broadway with a limited-run show called 'Kathy Griffin Wants a Tony.' The show will run from March 11–13 and 15–19, and the comedian will tackle "fresh material due to the revolving door of pop culture, political and celebrity missteps." [The Hollywood Reporter]

Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt might be interested in joining the 'Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' cast, but Andy Cohen isn't into it. "Hell no," tweeted the 'Watch What Happens Live' host yesterday when someone asked if he'd consider it. [Twitter]

Michelle Obama Honored at 'Kids' Choice Awards' (VIDEO)

Kids' Choice Awards 2010, Michelle ObamaFirst Lady Michelle Obama was honored with a Big Help Award at the 'Kids' Choice Awards 2010' (Sat., 8PM ET on Nick). She really is a great role model for encouraging kids to get healthy and stay that way.

It's probably good that she taped her acceptance speech, lest she get slimed on stage. Something tells us she probably wouldn't even have minded, though.

Watch the video after the jump.

Kids' Choice Awards 2010, Katy PerryYou just never know when that slime is going to hit you at the 'Kids' Choice Awards 2010' (Sat., 8PM ET on Nick), but there's a pretty good chance that it WILL hit you. It's still a shock, though, as Katy Perry can attest to when she got slimed while announcing the favorite movie actress winner.

Green goes good with her blue hair, though, doesn't it? Even if it does taste like "boogers"! Miley Cyrus, who won the award, was very, very grateful that Perry didn't try to hug her and mess up her gorgeous white top.

Kids Choice Awards Red Carpet: Allison Iraheta Talks Top 10, 'Slumdog' Star on His Next Role

by Anna Dimond, posted Mar 28th 2010 9:00AM
After a winter awards frenzy for some of Hollywood's most seasoned stars, it was the kids' turn Saturday to take center stage at Nickelodeon's Kids Choice Awards, just in time for spring break -- and with temps that felt like summer.

Forget Academy politics and catering to the foreign press. The annual award show allows fans to vote on categories that include include staples like favorite TV actress (Selena Gomez took the orange blimp this year) and demo-specific verticals like cutest couple ('New Moon''s fictional Jacob and Bella [Taylor Lautner and Kristen Stewart] beat out the Obamas) and favorite voice from an animated movie (Jim Carrey). Comedian Kevin James hosted the event, which featured performances from tween phenom Justin Bieber and Rihanna, plus the requisite celeb-sliming.

Sweltering afternoon heat didn't stop the likes of Rihanna, Will Smith and his family, the Jonas Brothers and more from swarming the orange carpet ahead of the show. While the KCAs is familiar turf for some, others were taking it all in for the first time.

Kevin James Hosting Nick's 'Kids' Choice Awards'

by Danny Gallagher, posted Feb 16th 2010 7:00PM
The actor, comedian and former 'King of Queens' star will host this year's Nickelodeon awards show.

Kevin James has been announced as the host of the 23rd annual 'Kids' Choice Awards' set to air on March 27.

What a shame. That means his breathtaking tour-de-force film 'Paul Blart: Mall Cop' won't be eligible for a nomination, per the 'Kids' Choice' voting bylaws pact of 1997 overseen and enacted by former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger, then-UN Secretary General Kofi Annan and the guy who played Barth on 'You Can't Do That on Television.'

Idol gossip: Howard Stern wants to 'kill' Idol, and other odds and ends

by Liz Finn-Arnold, posted Apr 2nd 2007 10:43AM
Howard SternThe self-proclaimed "King of All Media," Howard Stern, wants to "kill" American Idol, and Eric the Midget isn't happy about that at all. When Stern first joined Vote for the Worst to support Sanjaya, I really thought it was a one-time bit. But Stern seems committed to disrupting Idol's game and destroying the show's credibility. How far will Sanjaya get? I'm thinking Top 5. If Stern continues to rally his fans, Sanjaya could go all the way.

American Idol wins FAVORITE TV SHOW! At the Nickelodeon's annual Kids' Choice Awards. Randy Jackson and Paula Abdul showed up this weekend to accept the award, but Simon Cowell was a no-show. Too bad, if ever anyone needed to get slimed . . .

According to the Nielsens, the Kids' Choice Awards show was watched by more 6-to-11-year-olds than American Idol. Who says kids today watch too much TV?

Paula Abdul to release greatest hits on May 8

by Liz Finn-Arnold, posted Mar 30th 2007 12:21PM
Paula AbdulAre you ready for a pop snack? You're in luck because Paula Abdul - Greatest Hits: Straight Up! will be released on May 8, 2007.

The 18-track collection includes all six of Paula's #1 chart-toppers, including: "Forever Your Girl," "Opposites Attract," "Cold Hearted," and "Rush, Rush."

You kiddies might not know this, but back in the old days (the golden years of MTV), long before Paula became the weeping, slurring, iconic Idol judge, she was a chart-topping performer who sold over 30 million records. She also won a Grammy, along with seven MTV Awards, two Emmy Awards, two People's Choice Awards, and two Kids Choice Awards. Not bad for an ex-cheerleader.

Paula proves that you don't have to win American Idol or have the "best voice in the world" to sell a lot of albums.

Justin Timberlake to host Kids Choice Awards

by Anna Johns, posted Feb 6th 2007 10:07AM
justin timberlakeJustin Timberlake might be having an identity crisis. When his new album first came out, he tried to make everyone think he was a bad-ass. He gave an interview to the British magazine Observer Music Montly where he said that he tried drugs. I believe the quote was, "I've done my fair share of drugs and I've been caught with my pants down."

Now he seems to be backing off his bad boy image by hosting the Nickelodeon Kids Choice Awards. Although, it's not like previous hosts of that show haven't had a dirtier side. Jack Black, for example, does some great kids stuff but his band Tenacious D is definitely not for kids.

To see Justin get slimed and screamed at by a crowd of pre-teens, the Kids Choice Awards air on March 31 at 8 pm on Nickelodeon.

The kids, they love Jack Black

by Anna Johns, posted Feb 8th 2006 10:11AM
jack black nickelodeonI'm guessing that we'll see the School of Rock version of Jack Black, rather than the Tenacious D version when he hosts Nickelodeon's 19th annual Kids' Choice Awards on April 1. I'm pretty sure F*** Her Gently isn't considered family-friendly. Black says of the honor, "I have a lot of secret plans for when I host the awards, but I can tell you I'm going to bring the super-duper, freaky-deaky, ultra-clowny super dance!" That man is going to drive those kids wild.

Voting begins on March 6 at Nickelodeon's website. A few nominees in the television category are after the jump, or you can check out the full list (including movies) here. Let's just say it ain't the Oscars. And that's OK.
