Some of the categories for the Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Awards include Favorite Movie, Favorite Movie Actor, Favorite Movie Actress, Favorite Animated Movie, Favorite Music Group and Favorite Kids TV Show. The yearly awards show airs on the Nickelodeon cable channel in late March or early April, usually on Saturday night.
Winners are voted by Nickelodeon viewers and are honored with an orange trophy in the shape of a blimp, a reference to the network's logo pre-2009. Will Smith is the individual who has won the most trophies with a total of 10, closely followed by Selena Gomez with nine. The title for most Kids' Choice Awards, however, belongs to the series SpongeBob Squarepants, with a total of 12 victories.
Celebrity guests and musical acts are a prime component of the show, which also includes host live entertainment. A trademark act of the show consists in covering guests with green slime, a tradition meant as an honor. Hosts of the show are also slimed, mostly during the finale. The only exception to the rule was 1992, as in that year the entire audience was slimed while celebrities were spared.
Since 2002, the show also features "slime stunts," where world renewed athletes and daredevils perform special stunts live on national television. As the name suggests, the stunts often involve landing into green slime.
