Nickelodeon will be celebrating it’s 23rd annual Kids Choice Awards show on March 27 in Los Angeles, and the nominees are in — and boy, are they good!
Hottie Taylor Lautner is nominated for Favorite Movie Actor (both Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson were snubbed), while “The Twilight Saga: New Moon” is up for Favorite Movie.Taylor will be competing with Zac Efron, Shia LaBeouf and Tyler Perry for the award.
Our girl Miley Cyrus is up for a whopping four nominations: Favorite Female Singer, Favorite Movie Actress, Favorite TV Actress and Favorite Song (for “Party in the U.S.A.”). In the movie actress category, Miley is up against Sandra Bullock, Megan Fox and Zoe Saldana . She will also go head to head with Beyoncé, Lady Gaga and her bestie Taylor Swift in the Favorite Female Singer category. Taylor is also up for Favorite Song for “You Belong With Me.”
And who could forget The Jonas Brothers? The boys are up for Favorite Music Group, and Joe and Nick are each up for Favorite TV Actor for their show “JONAS.” Poor Kevin did not receive a nomination, but we’re pretty sure he’s loved just as much.
Kevin James will host the show, which will air live on Nickelodeon at 8 PM ET on March 27, and he’s pretty pumped about it. “In short, I guess you could say hosting the Kids’ Choice Awards completes me,” Kevin told People.
We’re pretty excited about it as well. The magic happens in a little over a month, and you can count on Hollywood Crush to bring you all the latest news and action surrounding the big show!

New crush alert!
Our good friend Heidi Bennett from The Official Twilight Facebook Page got to chat with Tyson Houseman, who plays Quil Atera in the Twilight Saga (the “shy guy” who gets bashful around Bella and is one of Jacob’s BFFs). Hear what he has to howl about!
Q: Do you have a lot of scenes with Taylor Lautner in Eclipse?
A: I had a few scenes with Taylor, and he was really fun to work with. It was great having the opportunity to work with actors who have been doing it for a long time; it really helped with my own work.
Q: Before you were announced as an official cast member for the series, you were spotted with co-stars on the streets of Vancouver. Was that your first encounter with the paparazzi?
A: Yes, that was my first. It was an eerie feeling that they were actually there to take pictures of me, and of the rest of the guys. It gave me a taste of what being apart of this phenomenon would be like.
Q: In the fan community, there are two traits that are typically assigned to you – shyness and intelligence. Do you agree with that? Why or why not?
A: Well I’m flattered about the intelligence part! I guess I am probably a bit of a shy person when first meeting people, but once you get to know me I can be quite outgoing. At least, that’s what I’ve been told.
Q: I understand you’re an artist and a photographer and that this is your real passion. Can you tell me a little bit more about that and why you decided to take up acting for this series and whether you’ll continue on?
A: I’ve been drawing and painting since I was a little kid. Art is an extremely important part of my life. I see art everywhere and in everything. I think that’s why I also enjoy photography so much, because I can find a certain type of beauty in everything that I see, and I need to capture that beauty. Acting is an art and it is also something I really enjoy. As long as I am pursing an art and growing as an artist, then I’m happy.
Q: You’ve said that the wolfpack are currently some of your best friends. How would you describe each of them in one word?
A: Chaske – Sensible. Kiowa – Witty. Alex – Devoted.Bronson – Funny.
Q: Where can fans go to enjoy your artwork? Will you set up a Twitter and webpage?
A: I am currently in the works of setting up a website for my artwork and photography, and it should be up soon. I don’t have any Twitters, Myspace or Facebook yet, but once I set up the website then those will follow.
Cancel that manicure and call off date night because you’ve got an appointment with Edward Cullen on March 20. At the stroke of 12:01 a.m., the “New Moon” two-disc special edition DVD and special edition Blu-Ray will hit store shelves. And you can bet your sweet Volvo they’re full of juicy extras.
Along with the fantastic film, fans can expect a six-part, behind-the-scenes documentary chronicling the creation of the film, rehearsal footage from Muse, three music videos fromDeath Cab for Cutie, Anya Marina and Mute Math, as well as audio commentary by director Chris Weitz and editor Peter Lambert. But where, oh where, is the commentary track with Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner thatChris promised back in the day?
Perhaps that, along with the 20 minutes of deleted scenes, are among the “And more!” that the Summit press release touts. Count Hollywood Crush among the sorely disappointed if RPattz’s self-depricating humor isn’t included on the disc.
The DVD will retail for $32.99 and the Blu-Ray for $34.99. Both will go on pre-sale January 26.
It`s pretty funny how hard Taylor was laughing after the spoof was over. LOL
