So I was only able to catch some of the Kids Choice Awards (KCA) 2011 show last night, but I can say that it looked like a great show to be at live. I did catch Snoop Dog jumping on stage with Big Time Rush and getting slimed. I mean if you can slime the Doggfather you really have a great show. Even Heidi Klum got it. I would have liked to see some of the other stars slimed, but there is always next year for that.
Here are some of my own personal thoughts.
— Favorite Movie: “The Karate Kid.”
I can feel this entry, I mean Jaden Smith really did a great job in this role. The fact that is was Kung Fu though threw me for a loop while watching it. I mean how hard would it have been to have made it about Karate? Jackie Chan had another great role here, and I thought the actors really carried this film.
— Favorite Movie Actor: Johnny Depp, “Alice in Wonderland.”
Did not see it, but it sure looked visually stunning. Johnny Depp though based on past experience alone can get the nod from me.
— Favorite Movie Actress: Miley Cyrus, “The Last Song.”
I really think Miley is a real good actress. Far better than people give her credit for because of how she acts sometimes. Also even on a kids show (Hannah Montana) you could always see that should would be a wonderful actress in more adult roles. Plus she can sing and dance so you have the official triple threat.
— Favorite Animated Movie: “Despicable Me.”
You know I only caught the shorts from this film, not the whole film itself. The shorts and trailers were so funny I can only imagine that the movie would be great. The problem is wasn’t Toy Story 3 also out this year? So you have a funny movie versus a more emotional funny movie. I would have thought Toy Story 3 was a lock here.
— Favorite Voice from an Animated Movie: Eddie Murphy, “Shrek Forever After.”
It is Eddie Murphy, the guy can even make a Donkey funny.
— Favorite Butt-kicker: Jackie Chan, “The Karate Kid.”
Agreed, see above.
— Favorite TV Show: “iCarly.”
As you know, I am not a huge iCarly fan. It is the Nickelodeon Kids Choice Awards though. My pick here is probably Wizards of Waverly Place or Hannah Montana.
— Favorite TV Actor: Dylan Sprouse, “The Suite Life on Deck.”
While I am also not a huge fan of the show, Dylan really does a good job at his role. Also since he has more screen time than a lot of the actors he gets to show those skills a bit more.
— Favorite TV Actress: Selena Gomez, “Wizards of Waverly Place.”
Agreed, even though I would have taken Miley Cyrus here as well. I am a huge fan of Wizards and Selena does a great job on the show.
— Favorite TV Sidekick: Jennette McCurdy, “iCarly.”
Even though I am not a huge fan of iCarly, I do think Jennette McCurdy does a great job with the role. I am ok with this pick as well. I would have accepted Emily Osment though as well.
— Favorite Reality Show: “American Idol.”
Not too many reality shows that are kid friendly so Ill also make this my pick.
— Favorite Cartoon: “SpongeBob SquarePants.”
I like SpongeBob, my kids like SpongeBob so it is a good pick. I will say though I think people underestimate the goodness that is Johnny Test.
— Favorite Music Group: Black Eyed Peas.
Ok, I dont really have another good pick for this one.
— Favorite Female Singer: Katy Perry.
Hmm, Taylor Swift would have been my pick.
— Favorite Male Singer: Justin Bieber.
Agreed, no one can stand in front of Bieber. This kid does it all.
— Favorite Song: Justin Bieber, “Baby.”
Also like the fact that Luda is on this song so I can buy in.
— Favorite Male Athlete: Shaquille O’Neal.
Always fun, always entertaining. The sports world is going to miss him for those reasons when he does retire.
— Favorite Female Athlete: Lindsey Vonn.
— Favorite Book: “Diary of a Wimpy Kid” series.
Yeah I like these books a lot, I just think you have to really get the age range right when giving them to your kids.
— Favorite Video Game: “Just Dance 2.”
Maybe everyone does not have a Kinect, but Dance Revolution was the best game out last year, not even a question.
— The Big Help Award: Justin Timberlake.
This guy does help everyone out, so I agree with this choice as well.
