The Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards 2013
Saturday, March 23
Nickelodeon, 8pm ET LIVE!
It’s time again for the only awards show we know of that douses celebrities in green slime (the Golden Globes only does this metaphorically when Ricky Gervais hosts). Famous victims in the past have included Tom Cruise, Halle Berry, Justin Timberlake, Will Ferrell, Steve Carell, Sandra Bullock, Hugh Jackman and Katy Perry.
Host Josh Duhamel will preside over the zany proceedings, trying his bland-leading-man heart out to prove that he indeed does have a personality. Seriously, the most thought I’d ever given to this guy was how to properly pronounce his last name. But he seems game for whatever, having shot several ads that have him doing such undignified things as aping Katy Perry’s whipped-cream bikini shooters, and bathing in green slime, all in the name of comedy.
The categories include the standard Favorite TV Show and Favorite Movie, as well as favorite actors, actresses and singers, but like all quirky awards shows there are a few outliers. You know, like Favorite (Male and Female) Buttkicker and Favorite App. If you want to take more ownership in who gets what award, head to the Kids’ Choice Awards website to vote on a full list of nominees.
As for possible highlights, there’s a decent chance that one of the actresses who won at the Academy Awards this year will also win Favorite Female Buttkicker. Anne Hathaway is up for The Dark Knight Rises, while Jennifer Lawrence could take it home for The Hunger Games. Then if you go for more gossipy match-ups, Taylor Swift and her ex-beau Harry Styles’ band One Direction will battle for Favorite Song supremacy.
