The Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Awards, also known as the KCAs or Kids Choice Awards, is an annual awards show that airs on the Nickelodeon cable channel, which is usually held on a Saturday night in late March or early April, that honors the year's biggest television, movie, and music acts, as voted by Nickelodeon viewers. Winners receive a hollow orange blimp figurine, a logo outline for much of the network's 1984–2009 era, which also functions as a kaleidoscope.

The show features numerous celebrity guests and musical acts. In recent years, slime stunts have been incorporated into the show. The KCAs also host live entertainment. It has also been known to overwhelmingly cover people with the network's trademark green slime. Will Smith has won the most KCA awards (10), along with SpongeBob SquarePants, followed by Miley Cyrus, Amanda Bynes and Selena Gomez (6), Britney Spears (5), Hilary Duff (4), and Drake Bell (3) Whoopi Goldberg is the only person to have won a Kids' Choice Award, an Emmy, a Grammy, an Oscar, and a Tony.
