Knowing that the future is in the hands of today's children may slightly unnerve some of us, but we can't really predict the future based on their picks for this year's Kids' Choice Awards. Their penchant for Miley Cyrus seems to have returned, as her work has once again been nominated for the much awaited night.
People reports that the 17-year-old star managed to haul in a total of four nominations for the KCAs. According to the official list, she's been named as a contender in the following categories: "Favorite Female Singer," "Favorite Movie Actress" for Hannah Montana: The Movie, and "Favorite TV Actress" for Hannah Montana. Her single, "Party in the U.S.A." also got recognized as "Favorite Song".
But it looks like the Hannah Montana star has some tough competition in line for that coveted orange blimp. There's Beyonce, Taylor Swift, and Lady Gaga on the music side of the arena. Meanwhile, we have Miranda Cosgrove, Selena Gomez and Keke Palmer on the acting. Will Miley have to make way for these other girls this year?
In 2007 and 2008, Cyrus already won the "Favorite TV Actress" award. She also snagged "Favorite Female Singer" in 2008 and 2009, but didn't quite make the others last year. She always seems to be honored for her work on the Disney franchise, even though she has fervently expressed the desire to break out of that role.
Still, it's what kids remember her for and this is, after all, the Kids' Choice Awards. It's really difficult to take these rising stars seriously once you've gotten so used to seeing them dominate TV as children.
Anyway, Miley's still not the one leading the pack with her four nominations. Apparently, Twilight has five. She does have more than the Jonas Brothers and the Sprouse (Cole and Dylan, of Disney's The Suite Life on Deck) Brothers, who scored three each.
Hosted by Paul Blart: Mall Cop star Kevin James, the 23rd Annual Kids' Choice Awards will be held in Los Angeles next month. It will air on March 27, but those willing to participate can already start voting for their favorites on February 25 on this website.
