Nickelodeon's Kids' Choice Awards 2021 Logo Revealed | First Look

Nickelodeon has today unveiled a first look at the official logo for Kids' Choice Awards 2021, Nickelodeon's 34th Kids' Choice Awards, on their official KCA 2021 website for international viewers, kca.nick.tv!

Not much is currently known about Nickelodeon's 2021 Kids' Choice Awards 2021, including how Nickelodeon will be hosting this year's awards ceremony.

In March 2020, due to the global COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic, Nickelodeon was forced to postpone Kids’ Choice Awards 2020, which, set to be hosted by Chance the Rapper, was set to take place on Sunday, March 22, at the Forum in Inglewood, California. Rather than canceling the network's tentpole event, Nickelodeon opted for a virtually-produced filmed-at-home special, Kids' Choice Awards 2020: Celebrate Together, which was hosted by Nickelodeon alum Victoria Justice (Zoey 101VictoriousFun Size), and saw winners receive their blimps at home.

Although the show was a lot more intimate than viewers were used to, the show still managed to feature special guests and lots of slime.

Update (1/24) - Kids' Choice Awards 2021 will start to be aired globally from Monday 15th March 2021, which suggests that the global awards will be aired in the U.S. on either Saturday 13th or Sunday 14th March 2021.

Update (1/30) - Nickelodeon Germany has confirmed plans to air KCA 2021 on Monday 15th March 2021, and revealed that the ceremony is scheduled to take place in Los Angeles, California!

Although we are slowly but surely returning to "normal", we still have a long way to go before we can attend events like we used to, with most tours and events not scheduled to start up again until the middle of next year. Taking most things into consideration, below are three ways that Nickelodeon could host Kids' Choice Awards 2021.

Kids' Choice Awards 2021 logo variant.

The Studio Option: In the past few months, Nickelodeon in Brazil and Mexico have held localised versions of Kids' Choice Awards. Like the U.S./Global version, Nick's localised KCA events are usually held in big arenas in front of thousands of fans. However, this year, Nickelodeon Brazil and Nickelodeon Mexico drastically scaled down their KCAs, hosting them in a studio rather than arena with much smaller sets and with no audience. To make sure only a limited number of people were in close contact with each other, each show featured a mix of winners accepting their blimps in person and via the internet. Although much smaller, each event still managed to feature celebrity guests - in person and virtually - as well as big slime stunts. I would say that, the way things are going, this is probably the best option for the 2021 Kids' Choice Awards if Nickelodeon still wants to host them in March/April 2021. The only thing missing from the studio versions of the Kids' Choice Awards were live audiences. However, this could be remedied by Nickelodeon running a contest to allow viewers to attend the awards virtually - Britain's Got Talent recently featured 'virtual audiences', and yes, whilst looking like something from Black Mirror, it did sort of bring some normalcy back.

The Virtual Option: As previously mentioned, Nickelodeon postponed their annual slimefest, shifting it to a 'filmed-at-home' special instead, based on Nickelodeon in Germany, Switzerland and Austria's Nickelodeon Kids‘ Choice Awards 2020: Deutschland, Österreich, Schweiz. This was a ratings success for Nickelodeon, and whilst we are still slowly getting back to normal, could be the option that Nick goes with.

The Postponement Option: Like I mentioned above, a lot of events aren't planning to start up again until mid-2021. If Nickelodeon wants to have a big show with a large live audience, the network could be planning to postpone the event until later in the year. However, at the moment, there is no certainly of how things will be next year. With the virus coming back in waves, it's hard to pin-point a perfect date to have it. There are a few vaccines coming onto market which hopefully will help, but this all depends on how long their efficiently lasts, how widely available they are and how many people take them.

In my opinion, we probably won't be seeing a "normal" Kids' Choice Awards ceremony until 2022, so there's either a good chance we'll either see the studio option or virtual option for KCA 2021.

All three options also apply to Nickelodeon SlimeFest. Like KCA 2020, SlimeFest 2020 was also canceled. There are plans to host SlimeFest again in 2021, however, this all depends on how safe it is to do so. This could see Nickelodeon follow in Nickelodeon Italy's footsteps by hosting an in-studio SlimeFest festival, which would then air on Nickelodeon.

These are just my thoughts. The finalized version of Kids’ Choice Awards 2021 could look totally different than the options I've listed above. Tell me what you think in the comments below or let me know on social media!

‘ALVINNN!!! and The Chipmunks’ Ends 2020 on a High Note

Bagdasarian Productions is toasting an enormously successful year for its series ALVINNN!!! & the Chipmunks, produced in collaboration with Technicolor Animation Productions and distributed by PGS Entertainment. Recently polled by Mediametrie as the #1 series of the decade in Europe, a total of seven seasons (364 x 11’ episodes) have been ordered, with production currently in progress on Season 5.

“We are thrilled that The Chipmunks have been recognized as the number one series of the decade in Europe. This is yet another feather in Alvin’s 62-year-old cap,” said Ross Bagdasarian.

New deals include a recent commitment from Disney Spain for all seven seasons, while the brand arrived in China through a partnership with Senyu for the first three seasons.

The series, which is currently airing across 150+ territories, remains as one of the top kids shows around the world, with existing partners renewing extending their commitment on the brand, such as Super RTL (Germany), Gloob (Brazil), Discovery (Italy), RTBF (Belgium), TV Azteca (Mexico), Mediacorp (Singapore), ABS CBN (Philippines), DR (Denmark), MTVA (Hungary), RSI (Switzerland), TG4 (Ireland), LRT (Lithuania), HRT (Croatia) and Plus Plus (Ukraine).

“We are excited that our partners are coming for more ALVINNN!!! across the world and seeing it succeed at such high levels,” commented Boris Hertzog, Managing Director at Technicolor Animation Productions.

The brand also has incredible SVOD coverage, including CBS All Access/Paramount+ (U.S.), Netflix (Worldwide excl. U.S./Brazil/Nordics/Germany/France/Japan/China), Amazon (Europe), Radio-Canada / TVA (Canada), Amazon (India), SBS (Korea), Telecom Italia (Italy), Movistar / HBO (Spain), Azoomee / BSKYB / BT Retail (U.K.), E-Vision (MENA), Hot Telecommunication (Israel), Lattelecom (Latvia), VTR (Chile) and more.

“With new partnerships, more renewals and extensions in SVOD, ALVINNN!!! confirms its ability to massively entertain kids around the world on all continents,” said Philippe Soutter, President of PGS Entertainment.

Originally created in 1958 by Ross Bagdasarian, Sr., the Chipmunks are one of the largest family franchises in the world, with a multi-generational, international following.  Janice Karman and her husband Ross Bagdasarian are the owners of the franchise and producers of the hit 1980s TV series, as well as four blockbuster Chipmunk movies.

Currently, the new series is being aired on more than 70 Nickelodeon channels internationally, as well as over 100 leading free-to-air platforms. Season 5 is in production under the direction of Karman, with co-producers Bagdasarian Productions and TAP sharing writing, producing and directing responsibilities. Seasons 6 & 7 will follow.

Presented in CGI-animation, ALVINNN!!! & the Chipmunks reflects the trials and tribulations of a single parent, David Seville, trying to raise six hyperactive Chipmunks.  Like most parents, Dave’s patience will be pushed to the limit, forcing him to end many sentences with the iconic, “ALVINNN!!!” The series takes viewers on a roller-coaster ride of music, laughter, and stories geared to entertain the Chipmunks’ generations of fans. Each episode features a new, original Chipmunks song.

ALVINNN!!! & the Chipmunks is now guaranteed to be on-air with new episodes until at least 2026.

ViacomCBS Unveils First Look at Nickelodeon's 'Goldie’s Oldies', 'The Twisted Timeline of Sammy & Raj'

ViacomCBS Networks International (VCNI) has unveiled a first look at Nickelodeon International's upcoming series, Goldie’s Oldies and The Twisted Timeline of Sammy & Raj, as part of the media company's new video highlighting the importance of Diversity and Inclusion!

The video can be found embedded below, with the part about Nickelodeon's upcoming productions starting around the 1:43 mark. I've also made the segment into an animated gif, which can also be watched below.

About Goldie’s Oldies:

Announced in October 2019, Goldie’s Oldies is a brand new live action comedy series, and the first original commission made exclusively for Nickelodeon International’s channels and platforms in more than 170 territories outside the U.S.

Goldie’s Oldies, a 20 x 22 minute live action situation comedy to be filmed in studio and on location, is produced by Viacom’s in-house BAFTA-winning production arm, ViacomCBS International Studios (VIS) UK, marking the studio’s first move into scripted comedy, first commission for Nickelodeon and a significant step into children’s TV production, following previous work for Channel 5’s multiplatform preschool brand, Milkshake!.

Goldie’s Oldies focuses on the life of teenager Goldie, whose life is turned upside down when her family moves in with their Grandpa Maury and his three ‘70 something’ room mates. The series, which has an eleven strong global writing team, will begin filming in January 2020 and is set to air later next year across Nickelodeon’s international channels.

VIS UK is producing the series out of Manchester, expanding upon the launch of VIS UK’s first regional office at Salford’s dock10 MediaCity UK earlier this year. Goldie’s Oldies will tap into a number of local filming resources, including local on- and off-screen talent, studios, equipment and locations. Filming took place in 2020, briefly taking a break due to the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic.

Goldie’s Oldies was created by Evan Thaler Hickey (Top Wing, Go Away , Unicorn!, The Magic School Bus Rides Again) and the head writer is Mark Oswin (Hunter Street, So Awkward). It will be executive produced for VIS UK by Trevor Klein.

About The Twisted Timeline of Sammy & Raj:

Nickelodeon International is teaming up with Nickelodeon India, a part of Viacom18 that is a joint venture between ViacomCBS and Network18, to coproduce The Twisted Timeline of Sammy & Raj. The new series marks the first collaboration between the top kids’ entertainment brand and the leading Indian kids’ category brand from India’s fastest growing entertainment network.

Currently in production with Nickelodeon India of Viacom18, The Twisted Timeline of Sammy & Raj is slated to roll out across Nickelodeon International in 2021. With a mysterious time-altering app at their fingertips, the series follows the reality-bending adventures of a pair of cousin-brothers, as they pause, rewind, fast-forward and slow-motion their way into a whole host of rowdy laugh-out-loud exploits.

The international collaboration is underway on the new 20 x 30-minute 2D animated series, with animation and storyboards developing in India, scripting in progress in the U.S. and U.K., and casting initiated in the U.S.

Chris Rose, VP, Animation, Nickelodeon International and Anu Sikka, Head Creative, Content & Research, Kids TV Network at Viacom18 are overseeing the project. The head writer of the series is Jordan Gershowitz.

ViacomCBS has been bolstering its Diversity and Inclusion efforts in recent months, including launching new initiatives to elevate new diverse creative voices and storytellers.
