This weekend was all about Nickelodeons 22nd Annual Kids Choice Awards. I cannot believe I am about to admit this publically but I have already seen it twice. For the record I was watching it with kids though. Nickelodeon has been hyping it up for weeks with commercials with The Rock, who was this year’s host, along with commercials also done with last year’s host, Justin Timberlake. Not only were there commercials on TV and advertising in the magazines, we watched several web broadcasts from the team of " ICarly", with Miranda Costgrove and friends, one of Nickelodeons best new shows. And Nickelodeon did such a good job promoting the show they had over 90 million people vote online for this year’s favorites. That was definitely a record for the award show. I have to say The Rock and WWF wrestling have never been one of my favorites but he sure did change my mind last night. He was great and the kids loved him and anyone who is willing to get totally slimed like that gets my personal stamp of approval.
Here are some of the winners from the night. High School Musical 3: Senior Year as you can imagine was a big fan favorite. It won for Favorite Movie, and Vanessa Hudgens won for Favorite Female Star. Will Smith won for Favorite Males Star and Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa won for Favorite Animated Movie. Jack Black won for Favorite Voice from an Animated Movie for playing Po in Kung Fu Panda. With kids voting it is no big surprise that the Jonas Brothers won for Favorite Music Group, while Miley Cyrus and Jesse McCartney won for Favorite Female and Male Singers. Beyonce won Favorite Song for “Single Ladies (Put a Ring On It). In the TV categories Favorite Show went to my personal favorite, “ICarly” and Favorite Reality Show went to “American Idol”. Cutie David Archuletta and Paula Abdul accepted the award. Can I just say, no wonder people say strange things about Paula; she did seem just a bit off. Favorite TV Actor went to Dylan Sprouse from “The Suite Life of Zack and Cody”. Good for him but come on, you have to feel bad for his twin who he co –stars with. Selena Gomez from “Wizards of Waverly Place” won Favorite TV actress and of course Favorite Cartoon went to that cute little yellow guy “SpongeBob Squarepants”. Favorite Male Athlete went to Peyton Manning and Favorite Female Athlete went to Candace Parker. And last but not least, again no surprise here, Favorite Video Game went to the very fun and popular Guitar Hero World Tour and Favorite Book went the Twilight Series.
It was a fun night full of plenty of kid’s excitement and plenty of slime (be glad you were watching from home because it was a gooey ride home for a lot of kids in the audience.” The Rocks big goal was to be the best Kid’s Choice Host ever and he may have just succeeded. And speaking of slime, good job Jonas Brothers who really got it good. If you haven’t seen it I am sure it will be on plenty of times, sit down, relax and enjoy the sliming.
