Justin Timberlake – "I'm very excited to be hosting Nickelodeon's 20th Kids' Choice Awards. That's a big deal!" enthused Favorite Male Singer nominee Timberlake, who has won three Kids' Choice Blimp Awards: Favorite Musical Group ('N Sync – 1999) and Best Burp – 2003 & 2006. Planting tongue in cheek, he offered an explanation for the honor. "I think when you are as elite as I am at a burping contest, that should automatically get you a hosting gig at Kids' Choice. So I'm pretty sure that's what got me where I am today."
Ben Stiller – "I think there's something very real about Kids' Choice," said Stiller, who hosted the show in 2005. "If you connect with kids who have seen movies you're in, you can feel that connection they have to you... The enthusiasm kids have for what they like is very genuine. In that way it just feels very good to be a part of that connection...You can actually have fun and be a part of something that is very not cynical."
Kenan Thompson – Saturday Night Live's Thompson said of the orange Blimp he finally collected as 2000's Favorite TV Actor, "Oh yeah, it was nice." The onetime titular star of the movie Fat Albert won during his last season on Nickelodeon's All That after coming up short four years in a row. "I was old and ready to leave and they finally gave me one," he adds, laughing. "And I was like 'Thank you. Now I can go. Now I have my Blimp. I've been waiting for five years.'"
Arnold Schwarzenegger – Prior to switching careers, the erstwhile "Terminator" kissed his newly won Blimp in 1989 and said, "I love this Best Actor trophy." He took home another in 1991 for Kindergarten Cop and yet another for Terminator 2 in 1992.
Cameron Diaz – "I chugged a Diet Coke before I went onstage and it was like 'Bwaaapp'. I think that's the best award I've ever received," says the actress who walked away with the inaugural Burp Award at Kids' Choice 2003. On hosting the show in 2004, she said, "Nickelodeon's Kids' Choice Awards rock. I've had a blast every time I've gone to the show, and I'm looking forward to hanging with the kids and hosting with Mike Myers this year."
Jack Black – "I'm super excited to be hosting Nickelodeon's Kids' Choice Awards because when you're doing a show for the kids, you can get extra crazy and loony," said Black in 2006. He also boasted, "I have a lot of secret plans for when I host the awards, but I can tell you I'm going to bring the super-duper, freaky-deaky, ultra-clowny super dance!"
Mike Myers – "Kids are the biggest, best audience in the world and they deserve to have their say. And they say it all and say it loud at Nickelodeon's Kids' Choice Awards," said Myers, who hosted with Cameron Diaz in 2004.
Rosie O'Donnell – "There's nothing like Kids' Choice excitement, and it really is a party," said O'Donnell who should know. The seven-time host (1997-2003), two-time slimee, Hall of Famer (2000) and Favorite Movie Actress (1995-The Flintstones & 1997-Harriet the Spy) enjoyed her second sliming best "because it was with Tom Cruise." And she informs, "The slime is goopy but not sticky. It washes off easily." O'Donnell's all-time favorite moment: The confetti released spectacularly during Aerosmith's 1998 performance. "It looked like you were in a snow globe." Her words of wisdom to newbie guests: "You won't be able to hear anything including yourself. Just keep going."
Jim Carrey – In his first live KCA appearance, in 1997, the Favorite Actor declared, "This means so much to me... so much that I've decided to adopt each and every one of you as my own children!"
