Well, the coronavirus has shut down nearly every major pop culture event and that was the case with Nickelodeon’s 33rd annual ‘Kids Choice Awards’, subtitled “Celebrate Together.” But considering that kids don’t really watch regular television anyway, the decision was made to broadcast a “virtual telecast” hosted by Nick star Victoria Justice, with a live performance by Asher Angel (a.k.a. Billy Batson in ‘Shazam!’). This ceremony was broadcast on Sunday, six weeks after a more lavish spectacle was supposed to have taken place.
It should come as no surprise that kids love superheroes, and the champions of justice (not to be confused with Victoria) dominated. ‘Avengers: Endgame’ won Favorite Movie. ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ won the same prize last year. Spider-Man, himself, Tom Holland swung away with Favorite Superhero, appropriately taking the baton from last year’s winner, his mentor Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man.
Disney, who owns Marvel, dominated most of the other film categories, with Dove Cameron winning Favorite Movie Actress for the TV movie ‘Descendants 3’, ‘Frozen 2’ for Favorite Animated Movie, Beyoncé for Favorite Female Voice From an Animated Movie for ‘The Lion King’, and Josh Gad for Favorite Male Voice From an Animated Movie for ‘Frozen 2’.
Dwayne Johnson took home Favorite Movie Actor for ‘Jumanji: The Next Level’ and ‘Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw’, and was the only winner not affiliated with Disney or its subsidiaries.
The TV categories were a weird mix of kiddie fare and something that’s not supposed to even be watched by kids. Jace Norman won Favorite Male TV Star (second year in a row) for his Nickelodeon superhero series ‘Henry Danger’, which also won Favorite Kids TV Show. ‘Stranger Things’, which carries a “mature audience” label, won Best Family TV Show, which is… odd. Star Millie Bobby Brown won Favorite Female TV Star.
Nickelodeon scaled back on the sheer number of categories this year, ditching listings like Favorite Butt-Kicker, and separate categories for TV shows– Funny, Drama, and Reality.
