‘SpongeBob,’ ‘Hotel Transylvania 2’ Triumph at Kids Choice Awards

The 2016 Kids’ Choice Awards came around Saturday night, broadcast live from L.A. on Nickelodeon. Hosted by country music star and TV personality Blake Shelton, the show featured performances by DNCE, Silento, Charlie Puth and Wiz Khalifa as well as special appearances by Anthony Anderson, Will Arnett, Rowan Blanchard, Dove Cameron, Sabrina Carpenter, Cameron Dallas, Ellen DeGeneres, Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Megan Fox, Sarah Hyland, Laura Marano, Amy Poehler, Debby Ryan, Adam Sandler, Meghan Trainer and Zendaya — to name a few.

(And if you need to look up some highlight clips, the traditional slime shower befell pop group Fifth Harmony, Josh Gad, John Stamos and Jason Sudeikis.)

The big feature win of the night went to Disney’s Star Wars: The Force Awakens, for Favorite Movie. Taking the top animation prizes were homegrown Nickelodeon series SpongeBob SquarePants, now in its ninth season, which took the Favorite Cartoon prize, and Genndy Tartakovsky’s Hotel Transylvania 2 from Sony Pictures Animation, named Favorite Animated Movie. Amy Poehler nabbed an orange blimp for Favorite Voice from an Animated Movie for her performance as Joy in Pixar’s Inside Out, and ABC’s The Muppets picked up the Favorite Family TV Show award.
