  • Nathan

    iCarly better win this year.

  • Jay “The Brain” Mann

    How in the world did Tom and Jerry get nominated? The new version of the series doesn’t even start until later this year. It could’ve went to a more deserving show like Gravity Falls or even My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. Eh, doesn’t matter anyways, we all know The Almighty Sponge will win.

  • ikin

    No entiendo por que los hechiceros son nominados si el programa termino a principios del año pasado…. vamos Icarly and Victorious

  • Jenny

    I’m amused at the fact Bon Jovi is nominated. Half these kids don’t know who they are, and the other half weren’t alive when they were popular.

  • DamC

    Why are the Harry Potter books nominated???

    The last one was released like 5 years ago

  • Juan David Pérez

    This makes no sense! Why is nominated The Fairly OddParents and Tom & Jerry?!?!?!

  • ZmaX

    @Jay “The Brain” Mann
    Definitely agree! Gravity Falls deserved a nomination. It’s one of the best new animated shows from these last few years.

  • JSunkist

    Fairly OddParents & Tom & Jerry? Who narrows these nominees down? Where are Adventure Time & Regular Show?

  • weirdfeline.tumblr.com

    Josh Duhamel???? How many people said no before they asked him to host?

  • Meanie

    They should of nominated Young Justice. I’m not a huge cartoon/anime fan but I like Young Justice

    Well all the unstoppable Sponge will take home the award *sigh*

  • Minka

    How in the hell was Johnny Depp for Dark Shadows nominated?

    Any parent dumb enough to let their under 10 year old watch Johnny Depp violently throttle a half-naked woman in a five minute sequence does not deserve their child. The film was filled with Satanic and sexual imagery, albeit in a dark comedic tone. Still, no child should be exposed to it.

  • Curtis

    I don’t really get why Tom and Jerry is nominated either (maybe it’s because they need a Cartoon Network show and most of CN’s shows are TV-PG(V), which still doesn’t make sense). They could have nominated Gumball or Looney Tunes. However, I’m not complaining. I’m voting Tom and Jerry. Also, why didn’t Nickelodeon choose Gravity Falls or My Little Pony or Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles or Transformers Prime? Those were great shows. I guess they want to stick with the formula of Spongebob, a lesser Nick show that has less exposure than Spongebob, a well-known Disney cartoon (to prove that Spongebob is better at Disney at cartoons), and a cartoon from Cartoon Network (which has many shows that could beat Spongebob, but choose the weaker ones, like Scooby Doo). Sure hope people vote Tom and Jerry. We can stop Spongebob from winning though.

  • PhilipM

    @Jenny: I don’t disagree with you that Bon Jovi are one of the more “surprising” nominees. That said, they’re still popular. In fact, they’re probably one of the three biggest touring acts worldwide to this day. The Taylor Swifts, Maroon 5s and Justin Biebers aren’t even close when it comes to drawing audiences. Things are obviously different among kids, though.

  • iCarly

    Go iCarly!

  • Jon23812

    Why is SpongeBob and Tom & Jerry nominated for Favorite Cartoon. SpongeBob sucks, and Tom & Jerry ended decades ago. I would replace both of those shows with The Legend of Korra and Gravity Falls.

    Also, why is Ice Age nominated for Favorite Animated Film? That was a bad movie, they should have nominated either Rise of the Guardians, or Frankenweenie instead.

    Also, why is WOWP nominated for Favorite TV Show? It’s a good show, and the best one on the list, but it ended already, it shouldn’t be eligible for a nomination.

    Also, why are the Harry Potter series nominated? Again, those are good books and the best one on the list, but that ended in 2007, it shouldn’t be eligible for a nomination.

    Who ever did these nominations were drunk.
