Actor/producer/singer/Oscar nominee and star of the upcoming Men in Black 3 Will Smith will be handling the hosting duties at Nickelodeon’s 25th Annual Kids’ Choice Awards on Saturday, March 31st. Smith’s no stranger to the Kids’ Choice Awards having won 10 ‘Blimps’ over the years.
 
“The Kids’ Choice Awards are always the year’s liveliest, slimiest and most outrageous party for kids and teens,” stated Will Smith, “I’m honored they wanted me to host this year so I can have a front row seat to take part in the fun.”
 
“How better to celebrate 25 years of Kids’ Choice Awards than with the biggest movie star in the world?” said Marjorie Cohn, President, Original Programming and Development, Nickelodeon Group and an Executive Producer of the show. “Will has enough KCA blimps at home to fill a room, having long been one of kids’ favorites. He’s a larger than life presence who knows how to play big and we’re excited he’ll be taking the stage for the biggest, loudest, messiest spectacle in the show’s 25-year history.”
 
Kids get to the chance to pick the winners once again by voting online.
