Kid's Choice Awards Noms Announced; Jack Black To Host Again

(If the guy on the left looks like Josh Peck....that's because it is!)

LOS ANGELES, Feb. 7 -- Slime recipient/movie star/funnyman Jack Black (DreamWorks' upcoming animated feature Kung Fu Panda) will host Nickelodeon's 21st Annual Kids' Choice Awards, Saturday, March 29 (8-9:30 p.m. ET/PT) -- "where Hollywood meets the slime" -- live from UCLA's Pauley Pavilion. Black, who helmed in 2006 and was doused then with the green goo, reclaims the reins at the 2008 "mini-Oscars" event where kids honor their favorites from the worlds of film, music, sports and television in a star- studded live telecast. 

We couldn't be happier that Jack is back to host Nickelodeon's Kids' Choice, and we're looking forward to seeing what he'll do for an encore on the show," said Marjorie Cohn, Executive Vice President, Development and Original Programming, Nickelodeon and an Executive Producer of the telecast. "Kids adore Jack, and his energy and unpredictability are a perfect fit for KCA. Last year's 20th milestone show broke records, but with Jack's energy and unpredictability we're expecting more surprises and more slime than ever before."

Jazzed about the return hosting gig, Black said, "I had a ball hosting The Kids Choice Awards, and I'm gearing up big-time to 'take charge' of the chaos and mess again this year. After all, I'm a second-time dad-to-be. I have a lot of secret plans, and I hope to give as good as I get when it comes to good, clean, slimy-green fun."

The ogre's odds to triumph grew tallest this year, as Shrek the Third nabbed four nominations: one for Favorite Animated Movie and three for Favorite Voice from an Animated Movie (Mike Meyers as Shrek, Cameron Diaz as Princess Fiona and Eddie Murphy as Donkey). Murphy also notched the list for Favorite Movie Actor (Norbit). Treasured noms went to Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End for Favorite Movie and its stars, Johnny Depp for Favorite Movie Actor and Keira Knightly for Favorite Movie Actress. The Bee Movie made the grade with a couple of noms for Favorite Animated Movie and Favorite Voice from an Animated Movie (Jerry Seinfeld as Barry B. Benson). Two-time winner Drew Barrymore (Music and Lyrics) grabbed a nom for Favorite Movie Actress as did Jessica Alba (Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer) and Kirsten Dunst (Spiderman 3).

In television, last year's Favorite TV Show, American Idol, got the nom in a new additional category this year, Favorite Reality Show. Nominee Drake Bell gets a chance to win Favorite TV Actor for the third consecutive year, and 2007's Favorite TV Actress, Miley Cyrus, could repeat her performance and also snag Favorite Female Singer this time around, while her show Hannah Montana faces off against Drake & Josh, The Suite Life of Zack and Cody and first-time nominee iCarly. Five-time Favorite Cartoon SpongeBob SquarePants absorbed another nom and will square off against former Blimp winning animated family The Simpsons, who also turn up in the category of Favorite Animated Movie.

Last year's Favorite Female Singer, Beyonce, made the list again to compete against Cyrus, Alicia Keys and Fergie, whose song Big Girls Don't Cry also is nominated for Favorite Song. Last year's Kids' Choice host and Favorite Male Singer, Justin Timberlake, nabbed a nomination in that category again, and the Jonas Brothers and Boys Like Girls are among the contenders for Favorite Musical Group.
