The Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards, also known as the KCAs or Kids Choice Awards, is an annual awards show that airs on the Nickelodeon cable channel, which is usually held on a Saturday night in late March or early April, that honors the year’s biggest television, movie, and music acts, as voted by Nickelodeon viewers. Winners receive a hollow orange blimp figurine, a logo outline for much of the network’s 1984–2009 era, which also functions as a kaleidoscope.
The show features numerous celebrity guests and musical acts. In recent years, slime stunts have been incorporated into the show. The KCAs also host live entertainment. It has also been known to overwhelmingly cover people with the network’s trademark green slime. The series SpongeBob SquarePants has won the most KCA awards, with twelve overall through the series’ run. Individually, Will Smith has won the most trophies with ten, followed by Selena Gomez, Miley Cyrus and Amanda Bynes, Britney Spears, Hilary Duff and Justin Bieber, Ross Lynch, Drake Bell and Taylor Swift. Whoopi Goldberg is the only person to have won a Kids’ Choice Award, along with the mainstream “EGOT” combination of an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony. Rosie O’Donnell and Jack Black have hosted the show the most times.
