Nickelodeon’s 22nd Annual Kids’ Choice AwardsHosted by Dwayne Johnson on Saturday 28th March 2009!
This year, as kids from all around the world honour their favourite stars from the worlds of film, music, TV and sports – and go green amid massive slime showers -- action star host, Dwayne Johnson, will rock at the helm of the 2009 Kids’ Choice Awards in LA.
Favourite stars who’ve notched a spot among the A-list of nominees for coveted Kids’ Choice Blimp trophies in Nickelodeon’s 22nd Annual Kids’ Choice Awards include: Jennifer Aniston, Beyoncé, Jack Black, Chris Brown, Jim Carrey, Miranda Cosgrove, Miley Cyrus, America Ferrera, Selena Gomez, Anne Hathaway, Vanessa Hudgens, The Jonas Brothers, Alicia Keys, George Lopez, Michael Phelps, Adam Sandler, Will Smith, Ben Stiller, Reese Witherspoon, Nat Wolff and Tiger Woods.
Making the grade again with kids, five-time Kids’ Choice winners/former ‘slimees’ Jim Carrey, Adam Sandler and Will Smith all nabbed nominations for Favourite Movie Actor: Carrey for Yes Man, Sandler for Bedtime Stories and Smith for Hancock. In fact, dual nominee Carrey’s up for Favourite Voice from an Animated Movie (Horton in Horton Hears a Who), too. First-timer George Lopez squares off against the trio of vets. Emmy and Golden Globe winner Jennifer Aniston got her seventh KCA nom with Marley & Me, and current Oscar nominee Anne Hathaway got her first, for Get Smart. Former KCA hosts Jack Black and Ben Stiller are back, this time with noms for Favourite Voice from an Animated Movie (respectively Po in Kung Fu Panda and Alex in Madagascar:Escape 2 Africa), and their flicks duke it out with the likes of Bolt and Wall-e. Meanwhile, The Dark Knight and Iron Man face Bedtime Stories and High School Musical 3: Senior Year for Favourite Movie.
Miley Cyrus, who took home two Blimps last year, not only picked up a pair of noms for Favourite Female Singer and Favourite Voice in an Animated Movie (Penny in Bolt), her Hannah Montana grabbed one for Favourite TV Show. Miranda Cosgrove clinched a nom for Favourite TV Actress, and her show, iCarly is up against the likes of Hannah, Zoey 101 and The Suite Life of Zack and Cody, whose stars Dylan and Cole Sprouse face each other, Nat Wolff and Jason Lee for Favourite TV Actor. Last year’s Favourite Reality Show, American Idol, could take that title again, and five-time Favourite Cartoon SpongeBob SquarePants absorbed yet another nomination, and will square off again against former Blimp winning animated family The Simpsons.
Last year’s Favourite Musical Group, The Jonas Brothers, are contenders in that category, competing against Linkin Park and KCA newcomers Pussycat Dolls and Daughtry. Beyoncé, who grabbed a pair of Blimps in 2007 (Favourite Female Singer and Song) got dual noms (Single Ladies). She’ll face off against former KCA winners Cyrus and Alicia Keys and Rihanna whose Don’t Stop the Music also is nominated for Favourite Song. Chris Brown, who seized a Blimp last year, is up again for Favourite Male Singer.
