Out of the Shadows Nominated for Nickelodeon Kid’s Choice Awards

In a move that likely won’t surprise anyone, Nickelodeon has seen fit to nominate Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows for several Kid’s Choice Awards. Considering that they were behind the production of this film, their decisions on this matter are definitely questionable. To be fair, this award show isn’t very significant, and this wouldn’t be the first time that someone pointed out inconsistencies in the nominations. Honestly, the KCA’s are mostly meant as entertainment for children, but something tells me that the fans will still be questioning some of these choices.

Here are the nominations for Paramount’s latest TMNT movie:

  • Favorite Movie: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows
  • Favorite Movie Actor: Will Arnett
  • Favorite Movie Actress: Megan Fox
  • #Squad: Noel Fisher, Jeremy Howard, Pete Ploszek, Alan Ritchson

As a fan of the film, I can totally understand and appreciate at least three of these nominations. However, I’m sure that a lot of shellheads will question the wisdom of nominating Megan Fox for this award – as meaningless as it may be. Nominating the actors who portrayed the turtles makes perfect sense, and Out of the Shadows itself is definitely deserving of an award for “Favorite Movie.” Even if it didn’t do very well in theaters, it was pretty well received by many fans of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles – some who now consider this their favorite TMNT film.

In addition to these four nominations, Nickelodeon’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles animated series also received a nomination for “Favorite Cartoon.” I doubt anyone would have a problem with that decision, as most fans agree that this is one of the greatest interpretations of our heroes in a half shell that has ever hit the small screen. Again, these are just Kid’s Choice Awards, but it’s nice to see the turtles getting some love after recently being nominated for two Razzies – even if that love is coming from the same people who own the rights to the franchise.

The 2017 Kid’s Choice Awards will be held on March 11th.

Are you surprised by these nominations? Do you agree with them, or are they just silly? Do you think Out of the Shadows or Nickelodeon’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles will win any Kid’s Choice Awards this year? Share your thoughts and opinions either in the comments below or on Facebook/Twitter.

My name is Justin Wren and I love to write about the TMNT! I've been a big Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles fan since the late 80's. Back then, I would watch the original animated series and play with the Playmates toys all the time. I have been following the boys ever since I was a kid, and I'm very happy to see them back in the limelight after all these years. Needless to say, I'm proud to be a member of the team on this awesome TMNT Fan Site!

    If Spongebob wasn’t nominated, I’d say that the 2012 TMNT has favorite cartoon in the bag. But knowing Nick, they’ll rig it in Spongebob’s favor like every year
