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

Garythesnail

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!

Tell me how Spongebob, even in its worst seasons, was better than Nickelodeon's incarnation of TMNT, as well as Legend of Korra. Please, Nickelodeon. Explain that.

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

Terrific cartoons have been nominated for the KCAs over the years. These include the likes of Gumball, Steven Universe, The Loud House and Gravity Falls but do they get the praise they deserve? No, because SPONGEBOB ALWAYS WINS. I'm starting to think that the KCAs are rigged.

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.

HE WON FAVORITE CARTOON IN 2018! NOOO WHEN WILL IT STOP! - ShopkinsLover

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!

Hell yeah, it does, especially with the slimin' bullcrap. No wonder it's like American idol. I mean, who cares about going' gaga over celebrities when it's really a waste of time?

6 It's gone downhill

(Please take in mind that some of this is in my opinion)

They use to Slime people so often and they made it unexpected. You could never guess when someone would get slimed. Now, they barely slime people and you can easily tell when someone will get slimed. The people chosen to host the KCAs, the voting categories, the nominees, and the winners are also going downhill. I'll take 2015's host, categories, nominees, and winners for example. The host was Nick Jonas, which I guess wasn't too bad, but they could have done better. This year's winner for "Best Family T.V. Show" was "Austin and Ally". Seriously? The other nominees also sucked. I also don't get how "Modern Family" beat "The Big Bang Theory" and "The Flash" for best family T.V. Show. The best T.V. Actor and Actress were both from Austin and Ally, which doesn't surprise me since Austin and Ally won an award already. Obviously, SpongeBob won the best cartoon award, which also ...more

I didn't even watch it this year, but apparently Blake Shelton was the host. Though through Quiz Up I found that Gravity Falls was one of the nominees for favorite cartoon and it lost. Yet somehow SpongeBob won that award again. I'd get it if SpongeBob won it in like 2003, but after the SpongeBob movie the show just went downhill. Nick's just too SpongeBob-obsessed now. - Anonymousxcxc

Th

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? "

I know what Nickelodeon is trying to do. They're putting bad shows on the nomination so that SBSP seems better and win. They even removed Steven Universe and Gumball this year (2018). But then again, even if they're still in the nominations, SpongeBob would still win because the awards show is obviously rigged. Let's just hope that The Loud House (the least awful out of all the nominees) wins this year.

At least it didn't win.

This show is a complete disgrace to the old teen titans I can't believe some kids actually like it

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?!

They nominated the thundermans and in the 2016 one like what IS THIS?! Everyone hates this show!

The Kid from henry danger keeps winning best T.V. actor and he can't even act

9 They overuse nominees

SpongeBob wins everything. BUT WHY?! - RiverClanRocks

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

At lsast they nominated Loud House.

I can't even wach it and sponge bod is goint 2 win cus he is " the best cartoon ". ther are so meny good cartoons, BUT spongbod is "the best " NO MORE KIDS CHOICE AWARDS! ( the hate netflex shows so muth, there cartoon are not on it ) ( also I want anami)

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.

The Newcomers

? They nominate inappropriate films, TV shows and music-related nominees!

Examples: Ghostbusters (2016), Big Bang Theory, Fifth Harmony's Work from Home, Just Dance series, Bang Bang by Jessie J, Ariana Grande, and Nicki Minaj, etc. They should REALLY be ashamed of themselves for doing this! This is for KIDS!

? The 2016 Ghostbusters won best movie

The Contenders

11 Just dance always wins favorite video game

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

At least Sonic Forces is not nominated this year. And Just Dance is not even that good to me anyways. If you want a good video game, play Super Mario 64.

Who Even Plays Just Dance anymore and why do they keep games - s646451

Just dance beating Super Mario Odyssey shows just how stupid the voters are.

12 Adam Sandler Guest Stars at the 2010 Kids Choice Awards

Kids don't even know who Adam Sandler is.

Him? The purveyor of terrible movies this century? Bite me!

God, these people are idiots... - DapperPickle

Most kids don't know who Adam Sandler is, and most adults would've changed the channel by now! - Aragorn98

13 They rigged it in favor of Spongebob!

That show always wins and they exposed the truth at the 2015 KCA's when Tom Kenny and Bill, I can recall his last name and I don't care, claimed the award at the show and no other nominee showed up!

14 Jacob Sartorius vs. Jojo Siwa!

Both are awful but id have to say Jacob Sartorius is worse - Ihateschool

Jojo Siwa is is the worst person because she its too braggy and full of herself

I hate jojo siwa! She's so annoying! Her bows are horrible!

There both the worst - AliciaMae

15 No fair chances
16 Justin Bieber wins the awards

And the worst part is that he performed at the awards. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Please kill me.

If I see him on one list 1 more time, I will quit - Officialpen

WHY? Justin HAS NO TALENT

17 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.

THIS SHOW IS TEN TIMES BETTER THAN SPONGE BOB

How can Gravity lose to Sponge?! 😤😤😤

My theory is that because Gravity Falls is on Disney Channel, and Nickelodeon was afraid that if it won, people would go watch Disney Channel instead of Nickelodeon. - AliciaMae

18 They never nominate Rick and Morty or Family Guy

I think those shows are a little mature for those younger kids. - creed99

Um...you do know the Kids Choice Awards are voted by um...KIDS, right? And Family Guy is terrible anyway - TwilightKitsune

Family Guy shouldn't be nominated but Rick and Morty should - Ihateschool

That's because those two shows are aimed at grown ups. - Croy987

19 They cannot be taken seriously

They can't be taken seriously they act stupid why and people want to vote but every time I want to vote it sase voting OVER

20 It is boring

I watch it one year and I ended up switching the channel cause they kept changing it to commercials like every 5 min.

21 They nominated Nicki Minaj

Doesn't get any worse than this.

I hate Nicki Minaj - Ihateschool

Nicki Minsk sucks.

22 They encourage kids to use social media

Social media is bad for kids. I only like this website and youtube

23 Bang Bang won for favorite song and the song is about sex

Isn't the kids choice awards for kids?

24 Minecraft wins every best game award

Sorry To Correct You But The Game That Mostly Wins Is Not Minecraft It's Just Dance And I Can See Why - Stevenpenguin

That's good minecraft rocks - Officialpen

Wrong, Just Dance always wins - AliciaMae

Minecraft a awesome

25 Fifth Harmony won over Fall Out Boy

Proof that only little girls and preteen girls vote

No 5th harmony is stupid and every song is about sex. Fall out boy Is awesome. - PanthersFTWpatriotsFTL

26 Girl Meets World Lost

Girl Meets World lost. GMW is the best children's show (in my opinion) on the network today, it teaches kids so much, and is very popular! But for the last two shows, they've lost! The winner for the 2016 show was the thundermans, which is a horrible show about this family, who tries to "save the world from evil", and then henry danger won this year. It is beyond rigged, and GMW deserved to win. As everyone knows, it is rigged, so yeah, screw you KCA's

While I don't like GMW anymore, it was certainly better than the other nominees. Meanwhile Nick treats Henry Danger like a deity and that's why it won. Though really all I cared about is that The Blundermans lost. - Cartoonfan202

Whats more Henry Danger beat it Henry Danger is a show that is suuupperr stupid - Ihateschool

27 The Jokes are bad
28 Slime

The slime is stupid and retarted and I don't know anyone who would want to be covered in this crap. Anyone exept for retard JOJO SIWA!

29 They didn't nominate My Little Pony

MLP is on a lesser-known network, so they didn't nominate it. - Cartoonfan202

30 Teen Titans Go! was a nominee in 2017

Sometimes, I ponder to myself what kids' tastes are like these days... - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Please! I hope it's replaced with MLP!

Te Amazing World of Gumball? Good choice, But Teen Titans Go!? OH NO THAT IS THE WORST SHOW TO BE NOMINATED

31 Blake Shelton was the host for the 2016 Kid's Choice Awards

Wasn't there john Cena? WAIT I'm THINKING OF 2017

God, I hate country singers. - creed99

He sucked

32 It's a popularity poll

People only vote for who is the most popular / trending not by how good they are. Twenty One pilots is in for so many this year and I'm scared that they will lose to some cringey / crappy artist that doesn't even deserve it!

I hate JoJo so much

33 No rockers allowed
34 John Cena hosted it twice

He better not host it a third time, two times is enough. Besides the KCA's would be better off without him.

And all the kids go : YAAAY MAMA! JOHN CENA MY HERO IS ON T.V.

35 Imagine Dragons lost to Fifth Harmony

This is a Discrase - s646451

36 Doesn't make any sense

Seriously Slime, what the hell where the producers thinking. And it looks more like a little kids contest program than a awards show

They literally put on shows with sex and swearing, artists who sing about sex, and movies that are too dirty for kids.

37 Mario and Ligui at Kids Choice Adwards 2016 with Game Shakers sucked

Why let Game Shakers ruin the master video game.
Story:
I was with my babysister Leo and we watched The Kids Choice Adwards 2016 and when we saw Mario I told Leo it was going to bad then he said I right. TOTTALY RIGHT, Game Shakers ruined it by the goombas not get jumped, slow jumping, and boring things. WORST EVENT AT KIDS CHOICE ADWARDS EVENT EVER!

38 My Little Pony did not get nominated

Is this a joke?!

39 Frozen always wins

Frozen won once.

40 Metallica's New Album Wasn't Nominated

Kids don't know Metallica that's sad. - PanthersFTWpatriotsFTL

Idiots don't know real music

41 Mario games never win
42 They didn't nominate preschool TV shows

Like Dora?

43 Iggy Azalea performed at the 2015 Kid's Choice Awards
44 They barely nominate any good cartoons

The only good cartoons that get nominated are Adventure Time, Gravity Falls, Avatar, The Loud House, and Steven Universe. Other than that they never nominate any other good show like We Bare Bears, Star vs The Forces of Evil, Regular Show, or just any other show in general. Oh yeah I to mention TMNT and The Amazing World of Gumball also gets nominated.
