Nickelodeon executive vice-president development and original programming Marjorie Cohn said, Were thrilled to welcome Ben Stiller as a first-time host of Nickelodeons KidsChoice this year. Hes hilarious, loved by kids and a movie veteran of the kind of irreverent mayhem that is the hallmark of our slime-meets-stars Awards.

Ben Stiller as quoted said, Nickelodeons Kids Choice Awards is hands down the ultimate awards show involving the use of slime on stage. Im looking forward to hosting the show and being in the middle of all the kid-fueled energy - and yes, maybe even orchestrating something so kid-spirational that Hollywood will be forced to let them sit at the grown-ups awards table once and for all.

Nominees announced for the awards, includes the feature film Shrek 2 which has topped the list this year, garnering five nominations for favorite movie, favorite voice from an animated movie (Eddie Murphy, Cameron Diaz and Mike Myers) and favorite video game.
