Prepare To Be Slimed…As The Australian Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards Nominees Are Announced!
Fave International Artist nominee Nick Lachey was on hand in Sydney today when the nominations for Nickelodeon's Australian Kids Choice Awards 2006 were announced. Nick was joined by Natalie Bassingthwaighte and James Ash from the Rogue Traders, Nickelodeon's SARVO co-hosts James and Dave, Lara Bingle and cast members of Blue Water High.

Nominations in this year's event highlight that it's tough competition out there. Ricki-Lee Coulter tops the list with nominations in four categories; “I'm excited to be nominated as Fave Aussie Artist; up against some of my own Idols! I presented this award to Guy last year, so it's extremely flattering to be nominated in this category! And go the Young Divas…three nominations, that's amazing!”

Coulter is closely followed in the number of nominations by The Veronicas, Stephanie McIntosh and Natalie Bassingthwaighte who have three nominations apiece. Guy Sebastian & Chris Hemsworth are hot on their heels, each with two nominations.

Guy Sebastian said of his two nominations; “Being nominated in Fave Aussie category, now that's pressure! I am so excited to be nominated again - The Kids Choice Awards is one of my favourite nights of the year. I'm already practicing for the BURP category this year by eating my mum's curries!”

Kate Ritchie will have to sing her thanks if she beats fellow Home & Away comrade Chris Hemsworth, Grant Denyer and Stephanie McIntosh to win Fave TV Star.

Will Guy Sebastian win the Fave Aussie category again or will Ian Thorpe, Anthony Callea or Australia's sweetheart Nicole Kidman take it out?

Aussie kids think that Stephanie McIntosh, Natalie Bassingthwaighte, Lara Bingle and Isabel Lucas are the hottest females in Australia, rounding out the Fave Hottie – female category. Stephanie McIntosh said; “I can't wait for the Kids' Choice Awards and I'm so excited that I'm nominated for three awards... but there's no way you're going to be able to slime me... I'll be keeping an eye out.”

Lee Harding, Dan O'Connor, Chris Hemsworth and Adam Saunders are the hottest guys with nominations in the Fave Hottie – male category. So who do you think is hotter?

David Koch, Dicko, Daryl Somers and Bert Newton have the dubious distinction of being nominated as Fave Old Fart.

Nickelodeon General Manager Katrina Southon said; “This is Nickelodeon's favourite time of the year, a time when thousands of Aussie kids tell us who they love the most! This year's competition promises to be fierce with an awesome line up of local and international talent. I can't wait to see some of these stars slimed in October!”

Kath & Kim, Bec & Lleyton, The Veronica's and SARVO co-hosts James & Dave are the most popular Fave Celebrity Duo. ‘We're really excited about being nominated at the 2006 Nickelodeon Awards, thanks to all our fans and Nickelodeon, keep rockin'!' The Veronica's said today.
