'Jenny from the Block' Vies for Prize
Earlier this week it was the 75th annual Oscars and the 23rd annual Razzies. And today it's the 16th annual Nickelodeon Kids Choice awards, as three nominations each have gone to Jennifer Lopez, Justin Timberlake, "Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets," "Ice Age" and "Spider-Man," Reuters reports. (The movies were nominated for favorite picture.)
The event -- to be held April 12 -- features 20 different categories, among them favorite book, sports team and male and female butt kicker.
And speaking of butt-kicking, onetime media queen Rosie O'Donnell, 40 -- apparently still a favorite of kids -- is set to return as host for the seventh year. (Last year, some 6 million viewers tuned in.)
In the nomination breakdowns, J.Lo, 33, is up for favorite female movie star, song ("Jenny from the Block") and female singer; Timberlake, 22, for male singer and, with his 'N Sync bandmates, for music group and song ("Girlfriend").
This year's show, which will air live from the Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, will carry a video-game theme, with celebrity presenters having to vie with virtual enemies -- as if there aren't enough real ones these days.
