Will Smith to Host Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards

Actor Will Smith was tapped as host of Nickelodeon’s 25th annual Kids’ Choice Awards from the Galen Center at USC on Saturday, March 31.

Yes, you read that correctly — the 25th annual — which means all of us are secretly getting old.

“The Kids’ Choice Awards are always the year’s liveliest, slimiest and most outrageous party for kids and teens,” Smith said in a statement. “I’m honored they wanted me to host this year so I can have a front row seat to take part in the fun.”

Smith is no stranger to the cable award show as he’s a 10-time Blimp Award winner.

In case you’re wondering, Rosie O’Donnell has hosted the Kids’ Choice Awards a record eight times since 1988.
