Move over Oscars—it’s almost time for the 2018 Nickelodeon Kids Choice Awards. With TV, movies, music and online categories, your kiddo is going to want to tune in and see this year’s winners and the not-so-much-winner. Heck, you’ll probably want to tune in, too. So who is in the running this year? Here’s the full list of Nickelodeon’s 2018 Kids Choice Awards nominees.

Unlike those fancy-shmancy adult awards shows, the Nickelodeon Kids Choice Awards are picked for kids, by kids. The Nickelodeon 2018 Kids Choice Awards will be hosted by wrestler—and surprisingly comedic actor—John Cena. But will we actually be able to SEE him host this year??
