2021 Aussie/Kiwi Legend Of The Year Nominees Announced.

Actor, comedian and Saturday Night Live legend Kenan Thompson will take kids on a wild and slimy ride as host of Nickelodeon’s Kids’ Choice Awards 2021, when the award show premieres on Monday, March 15, at 6pm (AEDT).

With Thompson at the helm, kids and families everywhere will literally be part of this year’s show like never before, celebrating fan-favourite stars across the worlds of film, television, music, sports and more.

For the first time ever, Nickelodeon’s Orange Blimp will leave the KCA venue and take fans on a wild ride around the world and beyond. Filled with slime and messy stunts, viewers will travel to outer space, Bikini Bottom and right into celebrities’ homes using XR technology. This year’s show will also feature live and interactive fan walls that bring celebrities and families at home to the main stage; second screen live voting all night long where fans stay in control; and a KCA award presented by one lucky family chosen during the show.

Beginning today, fans can cast votes at nick.com.au/KCA, or via twitter.

Leading the pack with the most nods are: Justin Bieber with five; Stranger Things with four; and Ariana Grande, The Croods: A New Age, Henry Danger, High School Musical: The Musical: The Series, Soul, Trolls World Tour and Wonder Woman 1984, all tied with three nominations each. Musical performances will be announced shortly.

Kids across Australia and New Zealand can also vote for their favourite “Aussie/Kiwi Legend of the Year”, which sees NBA star Paddy Mills up against Brisbane born actor Jacob Elordi (The Kissing Booth), Perth social media star Lauren Curtis as well as artists G Flip and Savannah Clarke (Now United), who is also nominated for “Favourite Global Music Star”.

Thompson is no stranger to Nickelodeon, having won a coveted Kids’ Choice Awards orange blimp for “Favourite Male TV Star” for his work in Nickelodeon’s sketch comedy hit All That in 2000. He was also nominated in that same category in 1998 alongside his longtime collaborator Kel Mitchell, who both serve as executive producers for the current iteration of All That which premiered in 2019.

Thompson said: “Nickelodeon has been part of my life and my family forever and I can’t wait to host this year’s Kids’ Choice Awards. Am I worried about getting slimed? Naaaah. It’s going to come fast and cold, but it’s not my first rodeo–you know what I’m saying? So, bring on the slime and let’s do this!”
