Awards

Chart-topping, six-time Grammy Award-winning megastars and kid faves The Black Eyed Peas will be rocking the house live, performing a medley of their hits at Nickelodeon’s 2011 Kids’ Choice Awards.

This year’s U.S. show will take place in LA and be fast-tracked hot off the satellite to broadcast to the kids of New Zealand the same day on Sunday April 3 at 6.30pm, exclusive to Nickelodeon.

Loved by kids all over the globe, the Black Eyed Peas won the blimp award as voted by Aussie kids at the Australian Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards in October last year for Fave International Band.

Joining BEP and recently announced show host Jack Black for the must-watch slime-fest this year will be the biggest names in movies, television and sports – Jason Segel (Bad Teacher), Russell Brand (Hop), Josh Duhamel(Transformers: Dark of the Moon), Damon Wayans (My Wife and Kids), Jaden Smith (The Karate Kid), Sofia Vergara (Modern Family), Jane Lynch (Glee), Lindsey Vonn (Olympic Gold Medalist), Nick Cannon (America’s Got Talent, TeenNick Halo Awards), Miranda Cosgrove (iCarly), Victoria Justice (Victorious), Danica Patrick (American auto racing driving), Rico Rodriguez (Modern Family), Cory Monteith (Glee) and Shaun White (Olympic Gold Medalist) – who are all slated to present at the USC Galen Center in Los Angeles. Nickelodeon boy band Big Time Rush will also perform their newest hit, “Boyfriend,” live at this year’s show.

“There is no better way to celebrate the year’s flagship TV event for kids than with a medley by first-time KCA performers The Black Eyed Peas,” said Marjorie Cohn, President, Original Programming and Development, Nickelodeon/MTVN Kids and Family Group and Executive Producer of the show. “The larger-than-life energy they will deliver on the stage will make for an unforgettable evening.”

The Black Eyed Peas – will.i.am, Fergie, Taboo and apl.de.ap – have always been considered innovators ever since emerging out of the West Coast underground rap scene in the 1990s, evolving into one of the most popular contemporary pop and R&B groups in the world. To date, they have sold 29 million records worldwide (plus over 30 million digital tracks), three million tickets and headlined over 300 different tour dates in 29 different countries.

Their recently released sixth full-length album, The Beginning taps into the dance-club energy perfected on their 2009 album, The E.N.D., with a sophisticated pop and electronic music palette. The E.N.D sold more than 11 million copies worldwide and entered the Billboard Top 200 Chart at number-one outperforming their previous album, Monkey Business. It yielded five Top 10 singles (the first album to do so in 20 years), spent an entire year in the Billboard Top 200 Chart and earned the group three new Grammy Awards, bringing their total to date to six Grammy Awards.

Kids can vote for the U.S. KCA’s online at http://www.nick.com/kca11 in a total of 20 categories. Surprise awards also will be announced during the show. Votes can also be cast via the Nick mobile website http://m.nick.com/kca11 and through a brand-new iPhone application. For the first time ever, KCA voting will be extended to an iPad-optimized site, TeenNick.com, and the Nickelodeon Facebook page, facebook.com/nickelodeon.

Leading up to the show, viewers can access clips and photos from past Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards on www.Nick.com/kca11, along with dedicated information pages on the host and nominees, digital Fan Kits, a KCA news blog, behind-the-scenes video of stars prepping for the KCAs, daily polls, quizzes and two new KCA-themed online games.

Last year, Nickelodeon’s 2010 Kids’ Choice Awards hosted by Kevin James slimed its way to stand as the second biggest US KCAs ever in the show’s 23-year history, averaging 7.6 million total viewers (P2+.) The star-studded telecast scored the most votes in the show’s history—a record 118 million votes were cast. The Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards is broadcast in more than 300 million households globally on Nickelodeon channels around the world.

UKTV – Monday 14 February, 7.30pm

Join the frocks and fabulousness of the 2011 British Academy of Film and Television Arts

Awards. Fast-tracked to air exclusively on UKTV less than 24 hours after the event in London, the BAFTAs recognise the best examples of film, television and video gaming from the preceding year.

The BAFTAs, which have been running for over 60 years, are the UK’s leading independent charity for the support, promotion and development of the art of moving film in the UK.

If you were hoping you could sit down to watch the 53rd Grammy Awards this afternoon from 2pm and have been hunting to find which channel is broadcasting them, don’t bother.  No one is screening the awards live here.

However, you can watch the Red Carpet arrivals Live on E! (until they start replaying them).

If you’re really in the mood for awards tonight, the Baftas are on UKTV from 7:30pm.

Betty White has capped off an incredible year with another award, voted Entertainer of the Year by the Associated Press.

The Hot In Cleveland star took the honour ahead of the cast of Glee with a total of 20 first place votes out of 102 ballots, with the Glee cast coming a close second with 18.

White adds the honour to an already colourful list of achievements in 2010 including a lifetime achievement Screen Actors Guild Awards, an Emmy, another SAG nomination and a successful new sitcom among other things.

But the 88-year-old plays down her success this past year.

“It’s ridiculous,” White told the AP. “They haven’t caught on to me, and I hope they never do.”

“Everybody keeps congratulating me on my resurgence and my big comeback. I haven’t been away, guys. I’ve been working steadily for the last 63 years. … I’ve had my own following all that time. If they want me to go away, if they get tired of me, just stop asking me because I keep saying yes.”

First it was the domestic service and now Qantas are no longer the naming rights sponsor for the annual Media Awards (referred to as the Canon Media Awards in 2011).

So where does this leave the Qantas Film and Television Awards?  Throng understands that there is a proposal with Qantas at the moment to renew their sponsorship of the awards but any confirmation is still a few weeks away.

Rick Friesen, Chief Executive of the New Zealand Television Broadcasters Council, told us that they had every reason to believe Qantas would continue their sponsorship of the awards.
