Voted by kids for kids, this year's nominees list is dominated by Sprouse twins' 'The Suite Life on Deck' and Miranda Cosgrove's 'iCarly'.
Kids are actually watching Disney and Nickelodeon shows. Picked by kids, almost all the TV nominees at this year's Kids' Choice Awards are from those two networks. "The Suite Life on Deck" and "iCarly" tie at four while "Wizards of Waverly Place" scores three, including a nomination for Selena Gomez for the umpteenth time.
The nominees under Favorite TV Show are almost the same to last year's except for "Sonny with a Chance" which is now replaced by "Big Time Rush". The series starring Demi Lovato is not getting some love this year, walking away with none.
As for Favorite Reality Show, "American Idol" once again has the chance to snap the prize, fighting against "Wipeout", "America's Got Talent" and "America's Funniest Video". Over at Favorite Cartoon, last year's winner "SpongeBob SquarePants" is to beat "The Penguins of Madagascar" and "Phineas & Ferb" once again in addition to "Scooby Doo! Mystery Incorporated".
24th Annual Kids' Choice Awards would be held April 2 at 8 P.M. Back by popular demand, Jack Black would be the host once again. "Jack is always an exciting host because of his unpredictability, incredible comedic timing and ability to connect with our audience. We're really excited to have him back," Marjorie Cohn, President, Original Programming and Development of Nickelodeon said.
Kids will be able to cast their votes online at Nick.com beginning March 7 in a total of 20 categories, including music, sports and movie. Surprise awards also will be announced during the show.
