Wannabe Award


Host Jack Black made a possibly inappropriate joke about a hot dog shaped car early in the awards:
"You don't want to drive a car shaped like a, well, never mind"

The awards were also accused of promoting upcoming Summer, 2008 movies, since many of the presenters were starring in them. One of the most notable references to this was when Harrison Ford had to grab a golden ball from a faux lost template, an obvious reference to Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull as well as premiering the brand new TV spot for the movie during the show. Steve Carell also presented and had a new TV spot for Get Smart.

The Rocktopus

The Rocktopus is an eight legged octopus of rock n' roll who haunts Jack Black in his dreams. Later during the awards show, they settle their differences in time for the Rocktopus to activate the slimer machine.

iCarly: Live From Hollywood

The iCarly cast was live outside the Pauley Pavilion in Hollywood, where the 2008 Kids' Choice Awards is held at. The cast aired from 9/8c - 11/10c. Carly, Sam, Freddie, and Spencer were at the Kids' Choice Awards because Spencer was hired to make a Kids' Choice Awards Blimp out of Wieners. Although Spencer was working on his sculpture, he happened to peek around the show, like the Gift bags for the Celebrities, going into Jack Black's Dressing Room, and stealing some mini wienies from the Snack table. In the end, his sculpture was destroyed when the Snack lady attacked him.
