Moviegoers might think that Hollywood talent wins Academy Awards by merit alone, but often, nominees live or die on Oscar night by the effectiveness of their awards-season campaigns. In fact, you can probably thank million-dollar campaigns for Crash beating Brokeback Mountain for Best Picture or Shakespeare in Love beating Saving Private Ryan.

Nickelodeon's Kids' Choice Awards: What Is Slime, and Why Do We Love It?

As you read this, Nickelodeon is probably whipping up thousands of gallons of its trademark green slime in some top-secret laboratory ahead of the 2023 Kids’ Choice Awards. In fact, the KCAs is one of the few Nickelodeon shows where the green stuff still flows freely, and no celebrity is safe from the neon-colored goop.
