Kids' Choice Awards: And the Nickelodeon Lifetime Achievement Award goes to... Dan Schneider!


Dan Schneider is the man behind nine of Nickelodeon’s most memorable shows, from All That to iCarly, and now the showrunner is getting recognized for his 20 years of work at the network with their very first Lifetime Achievement Award.

Schneider will be presented with the award at this Saturday’s Kids’ Choice Awards — an honor Schneider is overjoyed to receive, but also a bit confused by. “At first, I felt like, aren’t I too young for a lifetime achievement award?” the 48-year-old tells EW.

The self-described “perpetual adolescent” also talked about what set prop he’d keep if his house was on fire, why he won’t do another All That reboot, and his feelings on Nickelodeon’s notorious slime. Check out our interview with him below: READ FULL STORY

Nickelodeon announces new awards show: Kids' Choice Sports

Kids who would rather watch basketball than Big Bang Theory are in for a treat this summer when Nickelodeon premieres their first Kids’ Choice Sports awards show, a spin-off of the long-running Kids’ Choice Awards.

While the Kids’ Choice Awards focus on pop culture — TV shows, movies, music — this new awards ceremony will be all about sports. Michael Strahan, former Giants player and current host of Live! With Kelly and Michael, will host and showcase the year’s biggest moments in sports. Top athletes will be a major part of the show, competing in slime-filled competitions and showing off their skills, and the ceremony will even feature a half-time show complete with a live performance by a yet-to-be-announced act.

“Sports are a huge part of kids’ lives, and in the spirit of Kids’ Choice, we are going to celebrate it in the biggest, loudest, slimiest way possible this summer!” president of Nickelodeon Cyma Zarghami said in a statement.

Kids’ Choice Sports will air July 17 from the UCLA’s Pauley Pavilion.

Lea Michele, Andy Samberg presenting at the Kids' Choice Awards

Glee’s Lea Michele and Brooklyn Nine-Nine‘s Andy Samberg have been added to the list of this year’s Kids’ Choice Awards presenters, joining fellow TV stars Kristen Bell and Ian Somerhalder.

Big Bang Theory duo Kaley Cuoco and Jim Parsons will also present, along with Sister, Sister alum Tia Mowry-Hardrict and Live! With Kelly and Michael host Michael Strahan, according to People.

Tune in for the awards March 29 on Nickelodeon to see these presenters — and, more importantly, to see these presenters (maybe!) get slimed.

Kristen Bell, Will Arnett presenting at 'Kids' Choice Awards'

Looks like we’ll be seeing more of Kristen Bell even after Veronica Mars hits theaters March 14: She was just announced as one of the presenters for this year’s Kids’ Choice Awards.

The actress is one of the first presenters to be confirmed for the show, along with Ian Somerhalder and Will Arnett, a rep for Nickelodeon tells EW. American Authors, known for their hit “Best Day of My Life,” and Aloe Blacc, who co-wrote Avicii’s “Wake Me Up,” will perform.

Mark Walhberg is hosting this year’s ceremony, which airs on Nickelodeon March 29.

Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Awards 2013: Your slime recap!

Twilight‘s Kristen Stewart, One Direction, The Hunger Games, Selena Gomez, Victorious, and Katy Perry were all winners at last night’s Kids’ Choice Awards on Nickelodeon. But that’s not why you were watching, was it? When it comes to the KCA, it’s all about the slime. We were promised a Slime Dunk, a Mega-Slime, and more — and Nick, along with host Josh Duhamel in an array of silly costumes, mostly delivered. EW.com social media goddess Nika Vagner and I Vine-capped the whole affair on EW’s Twitter. Below we present, uninterrupted, all the squishy, icky, green-and-gooey goodness. (UPDATE: Check out the full winner’s list.)


2013 Kids' Choice Awards: And the winners are...

The kids were out in full force Saturday evening at USC’s Galen Center for the 26th Annual Kids’ Choice Awards. On the red carpet, dozens of kids in color coordinated neon pink and yellow outfits waited patiently for their favorite stars to arrive, screamingly wildly for their favorites, including Kristen Stewart, Miranda Cosgrove, Selena Gomez, and Katy Perry. On the famous Orange Carpet, Gabby Douglas told EW that she’s excited to start her acting career. “I’m doing a couple of cameos. Just getting my feet wet. Perhaps after my gymnastics career, I’m going to start trying for some acting roles,” Douglas said, wearing a very grown up Donna Karan dress. And that out of all the people she knows, the Olympic gold medal-winner told EW that she’d want to see Nick Cannon get slimed — and boy did her wish come true.

The Josh Duhamel-hosted show was a slime filled romp, and nobody was safe. Even Neil Patrick Harris’ magic skills couldn’t keep himself and Sandra Bullock from getting doused with the famous green goo. As for the winners, The Hunger Games may have won for best movie and book, but Oscar-winning actress Jennifer Lawrence couldn’t beat out Kristen Stewart, who took away the Favorite Female Buttkicker Award (beating Oscar-winner Anne Hathaway too) and Favorite Movie Actress.

Check out the full list of winners below:


Kids' Choice Awards host Josh Duhamel on pre-show nerves and becoming a dad

Josh Duhamel is not taking his Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards hosting duties lightly — it’s not all fun and slime.

“I’ve never done anything like this before, so I’m a little nervous. I’m trying not to think about the fact that I’m going to be compared to Jack Black and Will Smith and all these guys who I’ve always admired,” Duhamel told EW. “But then again, they hired me for me, so I’m just going to be me.”

The 26th Annual Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards will air  Saturday at 8 p.m. ET, and promises to be another fun romp with celebrity guests including Steve Carell, Kristin Wiig, Amanda Seyfried, Chris Pine, Sandra Bullock, and Neil Patrick Harris, and performances by Christina Aguilera, Ke$ha, and Pitbull. Over 326 million votes have been cast to date. Josh Duhamel sat down with EW to talk about the show, who he’s most excited to meet, and his plans for fatherhood.
