The December hour-long special will recognize five extraordinary young leaders who are making a positive impact in their communities and name TIME Kid of the Year, who will also be featured in companion stories in TIME and TIME For Kids. The Kid of the Year partnership will also include the opportunity for all the honorees to serve as kid reporters for TIME For Kids with exclusive access to Nickelodeon events throughout the year. Details on the nomination and submission process for Kid of the Year will be announced at a later date.

Said Trevor Noah, “As a former kid, I’m looking forward to being part of Nickelodeon and TIME’s Kid of the Year special, which celebrates everything that makes young people amazing and gives them a platform to have their voices heard. Today’s kids want to actively make the world a better place and we should do everything we can to help. That’s the goal of this show. So, let’s take those first steps on the path to positive change together and shine a light on the good.”

“Kids drive the cultural narrative in so many ways, and we at Nickelodeon are honored to partner with TIME and TIME For Kids for our first-ever Kid of the Year, an event that celebrates influential kids making a huge impact in their schools, communities and the world,” said Rob Bagshaw, Executive Vice President, Unscripted Content. “Led by the multitalented Trevor Noah, this special will showcase real kids’ achievements in a fun, unique way, and we are thrilled to extend its reach significantly further by simulcasting it on CBS, which is the most watched broadcast network.”

“Each and every day, kids around the world are inspiring, entertaining and positively impacting their communities,” said Ian Orefice, President of TIME Studios. “Their accomplishments remind us that the seemingly impossible may very well be possible. At TIME and TIME For Kids, we are committed to highlighting those that create positive change and we couldn’t be more thrilled to partner with Nickelodeon and Trevor Noah on Kid of the Year, celebrating these remarkable kids and their stories.”

The Kid of the Year TV special will shine a spotlight on five standout kids who have all gone the extra mile to positively shift culture and inspire others, culminating with one kid being recognized as Kid of the Year. The special will also feature stars from entertainment, sports and pop culture surprising the honorees, as well as musical performances.

Executive Producers include Andrea Delbanco (TIME For Kids), Ian Orefice and Mike Beck (TIME Studios), Trevor Noah and Haroon Saleem (Day Zero Productions), Norm Aladjem, Derek Van Pelt and Sanaz Yamin (Mainstay Entertainment) and Rob Bagshaw and Paul J.

The Kid of the Year initiative is part of Nickelodeon’s new content slate that is informed by insights into today’s kids, who: are the most diverse generation ever and expect to see themselves authentically represented in media and in the world around them; want to make a positive difference in the world as they grow up; consider social media stars as their top role models, alongside their parents; and increasingly meet their much-desired need for family time by co-viewing entertainment content together.

2018 Comic-Con International: Nickelodeon activities and exclusives

June 26, 2018

The following is a press release from Nickelodeon:

Nickelodeon is bringing the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, INVADER ZIM and more to life at Comic-Con International: San Diego 2018 through one-of-a-kind virtual and real-world experiences that will have fans saying, “Cowabunga”! Headquartered at its 1,800 square-foot booth (#4113) on the convention floor, Nickelodeon will showcase: Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, the all-new, reimagined series that follows the band of brothers as they seek to unlock the mystical secrets of New York City; the upcoming INVADER ZIM original TV movie; the return of Double Dare, a reboot of the iconic game show; the hit animated series The Loud House, which follows 11-year-old Lincoln Loud’s life with his 10 sisters; and Reptar from Rugrats, who will tower over Nick’s space.

Select fans have the opportunity to interact with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles in “Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Live,” a virtual reality experience that immerses users in the Turtles’ iconic New York City world and allows them to have a conversation with Mikey or Donnie – voiced live on the scene by Brandon Mychal Smith and Josh Brener, respectively. More details will be available soon for this off-site opportunity.

Nickelodeon’s 2018 Kids’ Choice Awards is produced by Nickelodeon Productions.  Elizabeth Kelly, Michael Dempsey, Shelly Sumpter Gillyard and Jay Schmalholz are executive producers.

In addition to his hosting duties, Cena is also breaking new ground at Nickelodeon with two firsts: he will get into character by lending his voice to an original villain named Baron Draxum in the brand-new 2D animated series Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, premiering late 2018; and he is executive producing the brand-new competition series, Keep It Spotless, where teams of kids go head-to-head in a battle to stay clean.

Nickelodeon, now in its 38th year, is the number-one entertainment brand for kids. It has built a diverse, global business by putting kids first in everything it does. The company includes television programming and production in the United States and around the world, plus consumer products, digital, recreation, books and feature films. Nickelodeon’s U.S. television network is seen in more than 90 million households and has been the number-one-rated kids’ basic cable network for 22 consecutive years.

2017 Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards: ‘Ghostbusters,’ ‘Finding Dory,’ Kevin Hart are the top winners

February 12, 2017

Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Awards

With three prizes each, the 2016 remake of the comedy film “Ghostbusters,” the animated movie “Finding Dory” (a sequel to “Finding Nemo”), and Kevin Hart were the top winners at Nickelodeon’s 30th Annual Kids’ Choice Awards (KCAs), which took place March 11, 2017, at USC’s Galen Center in Los Angeles.  Hosted by WWE Superstar John Cena, Nickelodeon’s 2017 Kids’ Choice Awards aired on Nickelodeon.

“Ghostbusters” received the awards for Favorite Movie, Favorite Actress (for Melissa McCarthy) and Favorite Actor (for Chris Hemsworth). “Finding Dory” won the prizes for Best Animated Movie, #Squad, Best Voice from an Animated Movie (for Ellen DeGeneres’ voice work as the forgetful fish named Dory). “Finding Dory” won the prizes for Best Animated Movie, #Squad, Best Voice from an Animated Movie (for Ellen DeGeneres’ voice work as the forgetful fish named Dory).  Hart’s voice work as a cat named Snowball in animated comedy “The Secret Life of Pets” earned him the awards for Favorite Villain and Most Wanted Pet, while his pairing with Dwayne Johnson in the action comedy “Central Intelligence” garnered the BFFs (Best Friends Forever) prize. The female singing group Fifth Harmony won two awards: Favorite Song (for “Work From Home”) and Favorite Music Group. “Henry Danger” also won two awards: Favorite TV Show – Kids Show and Favorite TV Actor (for Jace Norman).

Performers at the 2017 KCAs were Little Mix, as well as MGK with former Fifth Harmony member Camila Cabello.  Little Mix also won the prize for Favorite Global Music Star. And, of course, the tradition of showering unsuspecting stars with green slime at the KCAs continued. This year, the “green slime victims” were Chris Pratt, Cena and Demi Lovato.

Kids cast their votes for the awards at Nick.com and the Nick app on iPad, iPhone, Kindle and Android devices. Users were also able to vote through Twitter and Facebook using special KCA hashtags and the hashtag of their favorite nominee.

This year’s show featured nine new categories, including Favorite Frenemies, Most Wanted Pet, Favorite Viral Music Artist, Favorite Global Music Star and #Squad.

Nickelodeon’s 2017 Kids’ Choice Awards was produced by Nickelodeon Productions. Elizabeth Kelly, Michael Dempsey, Shelly Sumpter Gillyard and Jay Schmalholz were executive producers of the show.
