Aussies excited for Kids' Choice Awards

  • 1comments

Australia is voting like crazy for Twilight, Glee and MasterChef Australia.

Nominations are rolling in for this year's Kids' Choice Awards.

So far they have notched up over 500,000 votes for the best in TV, music, movies and more.

The record for votes from previous events is 1.2 million. But you still have time to vote if you want to help decide who might get slimed this year.

A new category that has been added is "Best Baddie" a fight going down to either Riley Biers (Xavier Samuel) from The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, Kyle Sandilands, WWE Superstars' Mike "The Miz" Mizanin (WWE Heel) or Sue Sylvester (Jane Lynch) from Glee.

The awards are widely recognised as a good yardstick of where trends are faring among Aussie kids. Each year they attract some of the who's who in the biz.

This year the awards return to Sydney, having been in Melbourne for the last few years. They will be held at the Sydney Entertainment Centre on Friday, October 8, and will screen that night on Nickelodeon.

No host or presenters have yet been announced, but previous awards have attracted big names such as Delta Goodrem, Miranda Cosgrove and Rove.

Among some of the TV titles this year are Camp Orange, The Biggest Loser, Australia's Got Talent and MasterChef Australia as Fave Reality Show.

iCarly, Glee, Wizards Of Waverly Place and Camp Orange: Castle Mountain are up for Fave TV Show.

Fave TV Star will be a battle between Miranda Cosgrove, the Big Time Rush cast, Selena Gomez, and MasterChef Australia's Adam & Callum.

There's even an oddly named LOL Award to be battled between Camp Orange's Luke & Wyatt, Hamish & Andy, iCarly cast and Shaun Micallef. While the Hottest Hottie is either Justin Bieber, Taylor Lautner, Rachael Finch or Taylor Swift.

The production of the Kids' Choice Awards is always top notch, even if the constant screaming is enough to clear the wax from your ears.

You can vote until Sunday, September 26, via www.nickelodeon.com.au as well as through Foxtel Interactive TV or the Austar website.

Then get ready to be slimed.
