6 Slime-tastic Facts About the Kids Choice Awards

Adults have the Oscars, the Grammys, the Golden Globes, and other stuffy black-tie events to celebrate movies, music and stars. Kids have the Kids’ Choice Awards to do the same thing… only with way less Prada and 100% more slime! And everyone knows there’s a direct equivalence between green goo and a good time— you can’t spell good without goo, after all.
The amazing awards event has evolved a lot over the years, and even made our jaws drop from time to time and slime to slime. Here are some of the zaniest facts and moments from the KCA’s epic history!

1. A Ballot is Born

The KCA have been an annual event for almost 30 years, with the first-ever show airing on April 18, 1988. At that time, they were called “The Big Ballot,” named for the ballots kids would send in to vote for their favorite movies, shows, and stars. The show was co-hosted by Tony Danza, Debbie Gibson, Brian Robbins, and the one-and-only Dan Schneider!

2. A Blimpy Debut

Two years later, in 1990, the iconic blimp award joined the party. It was configured to replicate Nickelodeon’s logo, and for those that don’t know, it doubles as a kaleidoscope! Trying seeing the world in technicolor with your Oscar. We bet you’ll be disappointed.

3. Pizza My Mind

Today, kids can vote online and through text. But before the Internet, everything was different. At first, voting was a combo of call-in votes, mailed-in ballots, and ballots completed at Pizza Hut!  With the Internet, voting moved online exclusively, then text was added in 2007.

We get why it’s more convenient now, but Pizza Hut sounds like the best incentive to vote ever.  This should be implemented in every election. And on an unrelated note, is anyone else hungry?

4. Slime of My Life

Celebrity sliming is a time-honored tradition. Recipients of slime throughout the years include the first to be slimed, Canadian comedian Les Lye in 1988, to Miranda Cosgrove and Victoria Justice to the most recent 2017 slimes, Demi Lovato, Chris Pratt, Kevin Hart, and 2017 host John Cena!

The slime is meant as an honor rather than a humiliation, as most Nick fans know. But in one year, 1992, no celebrity was slimed. Instead, the whole audience got covered in the magical substance! You might say a good slime was had by all.

5. Big Help, Bigger Honor

The KCA’s have changed over the years, but most have one thing in common: the winners are picked by kids. There are a few extra-special awards, though, and these are bestowed upon very special recipients, hand-picked by Nickelodeon staff. An easier way to tell these awards apart? The blimps aren’t orange!

The Big Green Help is one of such special blimps, which was awarded first to Leonardo DiCaprio in 2009 for “going above and beyond to help the environment.”

The Big Green Help was shortened to just the Big Help in 2011, when a fantastical silver blimp was awarded to Michelle Obama for her advocacy in the fight against child obesity as FLOTUS.

6. Life-Slime Achievements

There is one VERY special award that has only been awarded one time, to one very special recipient. That award is the Lifetime Achievement award, which was bestowed upon the legendary Nickelodeon writer and producer, Dan Schneider, who has worked on over two decades worth of Nick shows from “All That” to “Henry Danger.”

The award was presented by some of the most iconic actors he’s worked with for the last 20 years, including Kel Mitchell, now of “Game Shakers” fame. Dan thanked Nickelodeon and cast and crew members, saying “I feel so lucky that I get to spend my days hanging out with people as talented and hilarious and wonderful as all of you.”

We have to say, it’s well deserved. Perhaps the only person (or sea creature) who has achieved as much as Dan Schneider on Nickelodeon is Spongebob Squarepants, who earned the most KCA blimps of all time at 14 through the series’ run.

Dan Schneider is an American actor, TV and film actor, and producer. Dan Schneider has devoted his life to behind-the-scenes production of hit shows on Nickelodeon including “All That,” “The Amanda Show,” “Kenan & Kel,” “Drake & Josh,” “Zoey 101,” “iCarly,” “Victorious,” “Sam & Cat,” “Henry Danger,” and “Game Shakers.”

The Big Ear of Corn is back! Interview with Dan Schneider

We sat down with “All That” master producer-writer-director Dan Schneider about the illusive and illustrious Big Ear of Corn!

US:  What made you decide to create the Big Ear of Corn?

DS:  Well, at some point when I was writing part of the pilot script for All That, I wanted to add some weird, random, silly element to the “cast.”  And for some reason I thought to myself, "Hmmm, a giant ear of corn would look pretty funny," so I wrote in the Big Ear of Corn.  

US:  Did you just plan to write it in for one episode, or did you know it was going to be a recurring thing?

DS:  I don’t remember exactly.  I probably didn’t know it would become a regular thing on the show – that happens a lot in television.  Sometimes, you think some element of the show will be a major thing, and then you change your mind and stop writing it in – it just goes away.  Other times, you think something’s going to be a one-time bit, but then it becomes a regular part of the show.  That’s what happened with the Big Ear of Corn.  It worked well – it was funny on camera.  So when I'd write new sketches – usually the show's cold opens – I'd keep writing it in, and it became a regular thing on All That.

US:  Can you tell me something else that was supposed to be a one-time bit, that turned into a regular thing?

DS:  You mean for All That?  Or for any show I’ve done?


US:  Let’s say any show.

DS:  Sure.  Gibby on iCarly.  That character was only written to be a guest star for one episode, but then Gibby became a major part of the show.


US:  No way.  How did that happen?

DS:  I just thought he [Noah Munck] was so funny.  His comedy timing – he just made us all laugh.  So, we kept writing him in more and more episodes.  And then finally we decided to make him a series regular character.  Maybe that should be my next spin-off: Gibby & The Big Ear of Corn.

Hollywood’s Mad for Maddie Shipman: Go See Geezer in Theaters!

We’re so proud of Maddie Shipman and her incredible work! This young star is a joy to watch on screen and even more of a joy to work with. From her hilarious performances in Game Shakers to her stellar voice work in The Peanuts Movie and the upcoming Angry Birds Movie, Maddie is talented well beyond her years!
This Spring, Maddie’s fans were stoked to watch her walk Tribeca Film Festival’s red carpet for her upcoming film Geezer, a comedy starring Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong.





Maddie was joined on the red carpet by Billie Joe, Selma and the film’s director Lee Kirk.  

Geezer focuses on Perry (Armstrong), a former punk-rock star who’s living a happy and calm life in the suburbs. Things get shaken up for Perry on his 40th Birthday, when he tries to relive the wild ways of his youth and his crazy punk-rock past.

Maddie plays Armstrong’s daughter, Salome, and the cast is rounded out by other amazing talents like Selma Blair, Judy Greer and Chris Messina among many others.
