Roll out the orange carpet and grab an umbrella, because the 2015 Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards slimed celebrities left and right! The big winners of the night were The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 and the TV show Austin & Ally. Favorite Movie went to Mockingjay, which also scored Favorite Male and Female Action Star awards for Jennifer Lawrence and Liam Hemsworth. Austin & Ally won Favorite TV Show, as well as Favorite TV Actor and Actress for Ross Lynch and Laura Marano.
Other mega stars made appearances on this slimy night, like Chris Pratt and Angelina Jolie, whose villainous role in Maleficent earned her Favorite Villain. She gave a truly inspiring speech, telling kids that it’s okay to be different, and that she was definitely an oddball when she was younger. Just like the fairy Maleficent!
Nick Jonas, who won Favorite Male Singer, hosted the show, and he was joined by performers like Fifth Harmony, Meghan Trainor, and Echosmith. The only thing more animated than Jonas on stage was Favorite Cartoon SpongeBob SquarePants and Favorite Animated Movie Big Hero 6.
Who else was honored with the orange Nickelodeon blimp? In TV land, Modern Family took Favorite Family TV Show, Dance Moms waltzed away with Favorite Reality Show, The Voice was singing a happy tune as Favorite Talent Competition Show, Ben Stiller took a bow for Favorite Movie Actor, and Emma Stone turned redder than her hair while accepting Favorite Movie Actress. Fifth Harmony came in first place for Favorite New Artist, One Direction was above the rest as Favorite Music Group, Selena Gomez basked in the limelight of Favorite Female Singer, and top song went to “Bang Bang” by Jessie J, Ariana Grande, and Nicki Minaj.
More into books and video games? Then definitely check out the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series, which won Favorite Book, and Minecraft, which mined its way to a Most Addicting Game win.
