Taylor Swift, ‘Barbie’ Lead Nominations for 2024 Kids’ Choice Awards (Full List)

Taylor Swift is the leading individual nominee for the 2024 Kids’ Choice Awards, with six nods. She is followed on Nick’s slime-coated leaderboard by Beyoncé, Miley Cyrus, Olivia Rodrigo and Justin Timberlake, with four nods each.

It’s probably not just a coincidence that all five of these artists were quite young when they started. Cyrus was just 13 when she landed her first hit on the Billboard Hot 100 (as Hannah Montana); Swift and Beyoncé were each 16 when they first appeared on that chart (Beyoncé, as a member of Destiny’s Child); Timberlake and Rodrigo were each 17 (JT, as a member of *NSYNC).


Swift’s nominations are for favorite female artist, favorite album (The Tortured Poets Department: The Anthology), favorite global music star, favorite ticket of the year (Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour) and two nominations for favorite music collaboration (for “Fortnight,” featuring Post Malone, and the “Karma” remix with Ice Spice.)

Swift’s boyfriend, Travis Kelce, is nominated too, for favorite male sports star.

Barbie also scored heavily in the nominations, with eight total nods. The box-office juggernaut has four nods in film categories (favorite movie, favorite movie actor for Ryan Gosling and favorite movie actress for both Margot Robbie and America Ferrera) and four in music categories (favorite album, favorite song for both Dua Lipa’s “Dance the Night” and Billie Eilish’s “What Was I Made For?” and favorite music collaboration for Nicki Minaj and Ice Spice’s “Barbie World” with Aqua).  

Women have dominated the pop scene in recent years, so it is fitting that they dominate the nominations in such gender-neutral categories as favorite album, favorite song, favorite ticket (tour) of the year and favorite global music star.

Women fill six of the eight slots for favorite song. Dua Lipa, Cyrus, Doja Cat, Beyoncé, Eilish and Ariana Grande are vying for the award with Luke Combs and Timberlake. Beyoncé, Grande and Eilish have each won in this category twice in the past. If any of them wins again this year, they will tie Harry Styles as the only three-time winner in the history of the category (which dates to 1988). Styles won twice with One Direction and once on his own, with “As It Was” at last year’s show.

The competition is fierce for favorite female artist. Five of the eight nominees are past category champs – Grande (a five-time winner), Selena Gomez (a four-time winner), Cyrus and Swift (both two-time winners), Beyoncé (a one-time winner) – and three artists looking for their first wins in the category: Eilish, Cardi B and Rodrigo.

Timberlake received three music nominations – favorite male artist (a category he won in 2007 and 2014), favorite song for “Selfish” and, with *NSYNC, favorite music group (a category the boy band won in 1999). On the film side, he is nominated for favorite male voice from an animated movie for Trolls Band Together.

Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards 2024 will be simulcast live on the East Coast on Saturday, July 13, at 8 p.m. ET/PT across Nickelodeon, TeenNick, Nicktoons, the Nick Jr. channel, TV Land, CMT and MTV2.  The show will be hosted by SpongeBob SquarePants (voiced by Tom Kenny) and Patrick Star (voiced by Bill Fagerbakke). This marks the first time that the show has been hosted by virtual characters.

This year marks the 25th anniversary of SpongeBob SquarePants, which first aired on Nickelodeon as a sneak peek after the Kids’ Choice Awards on May 1, 1999, and officially premiered on July 17 of that year. The 2024 Kids’ Choice Awards will re-create the undersea home of Bikini Bottom, the setting of SpongeBob SquarePants.

The Kids’ Choice Awards, complete with green slime and Nick’s signature orange blimp award, has long been a top attraction for young viewers. (O.G. fans of the show who were, say, 8 when the show debuted in 1987 are now 45. Time marches on, even when you’re being slimed.)

The show will be held at UCLA’s Pauley Pavilion for the first time since 2010 and the 11th time overall.

Beginning today, fans in the U.S. can cast their votes across 33 categories on the official Kids’ Choice Awards website, International markets will also open voting today, including additional regional categories.

Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards 2024 is produced by Nickelodeon Productions and overseen by: Ashley Kaplan, executive vice president, Nickelodeon & Awesomeness Unscripted & Digital Franchise Studio; Paul J Medford, vice president, unscripted current series; Luke Wahl, vice president, unscripted creative; Jennifer Bryson, vice president, production, tentpoles, events & music & specials; and Ellen Rydzewski, senior vice president, celebrity, events & talent relations. Guy Carrington & Kevin Hermanson of Done and Dusted serve as executive producers, with Rob Paine serving as co-executive producer. The show is directed by James Merryman.
