Top 10 Worst Things About the Nickelodeon Kid's Choice Awards


The Top Ten

1 Biased nominees

Yes, yes, and yes. This year Gravity Falls was one of the nominees for Favorite Cartoon. I believe that it is actually becoming way more popular than SpongeBob. Plus it's way better too (though seasons 1-3 and the first SpongeBob movie were good). Only guess what it didn't win the nomination, but guess who did? SpongeBob. Again! Why, why, why? - Anonymousxcxc

Why the actual hell does "SpongeBob SquarePants" wins for every damn year for "Favorite Cartoon"? It makes the other nominees absolutely useless.

Agreed Completely. Legend of avatar won ONCE, but Spongebob has won like, 15 times over the last 10 years (And That isn't JUST counting best cartoon). Seriously, it was up against Steven universe, Gravity Falls, And amazing world of gumball, but it still won! Spongebob is just one example of why it is KCA COMPLETELY RIGGED!

YES. Spongebob has won for almost 10 years and since it started winning, only ONCE they lost. I feel horrified this is the future of America

2 If something Spongebob-related is nominated it automatically wins

People assume that if it is something Spongebob related, it must be incredibly popular. In a way, that's true, but often, you should check more on what a cartoon has to offer rather than how popular a cartoon show is. Good example? : Spongebob always makes the win, and yet shows like Gravity Falls and Steven Universe I don't think were nominated for this year. Even Teen Titans, Go! made the nomination unlike the two I mentioned before. I really think that we should be showing our kids more of shows like Gravity Falls and Steven Universe, the old Teen Titans, and mainly the early seasons of Spongebob(1-3). Plus, Spongebob has ran its coarse, I still don't know why Nickelodeon just wont show reruns and just end the shows production all together. - Matt-Rap

Patrick won Best Animal Sidekick? I would understand Gary, but Patrick? - Garythesnail

Yeah, it ALWAYS WINS FAVORITE CARTOON! I love SpongeBob but they should give other cartoons a chance. - PeeledBanana

It used to be Rugrats automatically wins. Here is a timeline, from SpongeBob release to present.

2001: The Rugrats
2002: The Simpsons (um, kids? )
2003: SpongeBob Squarepants for favorite cartoon (note how 2003 is when SpongeBob went downhill, so kids probably like Modern SpongeBob) and for Favorite Video Game, SpongeBob Squarepants: Revenge of the Flying Dutchman
2004: SpongeBob for favorite cartoon, Battle of Bikini Bottom for video game.
2005: SpongeBob for favorite cartoon
2006: SpongeBob for favorite cartoon

3 Stupid choices for categories

One Direction wins best band and song of the year every year and so does SpongeBob and Minecraft. They don't even nominate good shows, and when they do it just loses to a crappy (The Big Bang Theory lost to Austin & Ally) - simpsondude

Sponge bob is stupid but always wins

The Best Song nominees were so bad. - Puga

Patrick for best cartoon pet Patrick isn't a pet Gary is but not Patrick - Tyoshi

4 SpongeBob always wins

He has been on a winning streak since 2003, but in 2008 he lost to Avatar (THANK GOD) but that was short lived. He's been winning ever since even though he doesn't deserve it anymore. Honestly there are better cartoons, and he should give Fairly OddParents and Phineas and Ferb a chance, I personally like them better. Kids probably vote for him because 90% of the shows they put him up against are crap every year (they rarely pit him against FOP, P&F, or Adventure Time anymore) so I honestly think it's rigged that way. But that's just my opinion, I love ya SpongeBob and all your old episodes (Pre Movie) but you need to learn to lose.

I know right. Though this year apparently it went up against Gravity Falls and Gravity Falls lost. What?! - Anonymousxcxc

And what do you know? It won again for Best Cartoon at the 2017 awards. Oh well, at least the new episodes have been better with only a few polarizing ones here and there. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

I really got piss when I saw some people rant that spongebob should have won the 2008 kids choice awards instead of avatar seriously spongebob was dead by then.

No from what I heard on the Wikipedia, he lost to the Simpsons, not Avatar (but I think that was 2007 that happened though)

5 They overhype it

Its not that big of a deal. It tried too hard to appeal to the popular demographic, and doesn't really focus on rewarding talent rather than just handing out an award to anyone who is popular and "trending". - keycha1n

Nickelodian in general sucks! Disney is terrible and I prefer it over nick!

6 It's gone downhill V 1 Comment
7 They nominated Teen Titans Go

"You know this monstrosity that ruins a good cartoon from the 2000s? Well, why not give it a chance? "

At least it didn't win.

People, Clam Down. Its Just Was Nominated, Its Not Like It Won. - Stevenpenguin

Can we just not continue Go and just replace it with the original Teen Titans? Please? I LOVED THE ORIGINAL TEEN TITANS WHO IN HELL THOUGHT TO REPLACE IT WITH THIS ABOMINATION

8 Nickelodeon likes to reward themselves

It its supposed that Nick hosts the show and not to reward themselves.

They nominated the thunder and in the 2016 one like what IS THIS?!

I can almost always predict what their nominees end up being. - Garythesnail

At lsast they nominated Loud House.

10 Stupid voters

Those "stupid" voters are kids, they call it the KID'S choice awards for a reason. It's where kids vote on who they want to win. If you hate the Kids choice awards then don't watch it. If I don't like a certain show, I won't watch it because you know why? Common sense says don't watch it. You can go watch something else or turn off the T.V. and go find something to do. That what I do. - SapphireGrim

It's probably not even the kids they vote for there favorites but Nickelodeon doesn't count them unless they were voting for SpongeBob.

Who's really voting the kids or the nick staff they should call it the nick staff choice awards

This last time "I'm in love with a monster" from Hotel Transylvania 2 won over "Try Everything" from Zootopia this is why kids shouldn't be allowed to vote.

This is seriously a huge issue... You can tell Nick just keeps rigging the Favorite Video Game nomination to have this deadbeat and formulaic franchise win every year. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

15 No Gravity Falls!?

Gravity Falls was nominated this year (2016), but LOST to SpongeBob. Who's votIng anyway, the kids or Nick staff?

The one year they had Gravity Falls it loses to Spongebob, which is ridiculous.


How can Gravity lose to Sponge?! 😤😤😤
