10 Times The Kids Choice Awards Got It More Right Than The Oscars
Sometimes the Academy gets it wrong. Sometimes the Academy gets it so wrong that the children understand which movies are more applicable to society. Even though the Nickelodeon Kids Choice Awards are obviously a rigged voting system (Disney is short changed time and time again), gosh darn if it doesn’t occasionally depict a more accurate view of culture. We compared Picture of the Year to Favorite Movie of the year to see where the Oscars really slacked, and the kids really got it right. The faceless gold figure may be more prestigious, but that orange blimp isn’t nothing. The Academy can go obscure, pretentious, and snobby, where the Kids Choice Award are given to movies that are actually watched by the masses to affect society more in our day-to-day lives.
(That’s not to say that the Kids Choice don’t really fumble the ball sometimes. Shrek somehow didn’t take home the orange in 2001. And it’s absolutely scandalous that Spider-Verse wasn’t even nominated in 2019.)
