The Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Awards, also known as the Kids' Choice Awards or KCAs for short, are an annual awards show that have been broadcast on Nickelodeon since 1988 (with the exception of 1993). The award shows usually airs on a Saturday night in the spring (usually in late March or early April) to honor the previous year's biggest television, movie, and music acts, as voted by Nickelodeon viewers. The winners receive a hollow orange blimp with the Nickelodeon logo on it. During the awards' show, celebrities and the audience are splashed with slime. The show is often followed up by the premiere of a new Nickelodeon original series, and/or preceded by a new episode of an already-airing Nickelodeon show.
The most recent Kids' Choice Awards is the 33rd edition. Victoria Justice hosted the ceremony. It was originally scheduled to premiere on Sunday, March 22 and live at The Forum in Inglewood, California (as well as Chance the Rapper was set to host and Justin Bieber was scheduled to perform "Intentions" with Migos member Quavo), after the Henry Danger series finale, but was postponed as consideration of people's safety and health due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
A long version of the Nickelodeon Productions "Nick Lightbulb" logo with a hand reaching up and pulling on a string, revealing the logo, is said to have aired after the first run of Kids' Choice Awards 1996.
For unknown reasons, the KCAs once aired on YTV, owned by Corus Entertainment and not ViacomCBS. This might have been due to either YTV being a partner of Nickelodeon at the time, or Corus Entertainment actually owning Nickelodeon Canada at the time due to YTV and Corus Entertainment being Canadian.
