During its board of directors meeting in April 2019, the Academy voted to rename the Best Foreign Language Film category to Best International Feature Film. Animated and documentary films will also be eligible for the renamed award (as was the case of Honeyland), but the category will still require nominees to have the majority of their dialogue be in a language other than English.
The category of Best Makeup and Hairstyling has been expanded from seven finalists and three nominees to ten finalists and five nominees.
On January 9, 2020, ABC Entertainment president Karey Burke revealed that the ceremony would once again forego a host, citing the success of the format at the previous ceremony (necessitated by the withdrawal of originally announced host Kevin Hart). Burke promised that the ceremony would feature “huge entertainment values, big musical numbers, comedy, and star power”.

It honors the year’s biggest television, movie, and music acts as voted by viewers worldwide of Nickelodeon networks. Winners receive a hollow orange blimp figurine, a logo outline for much of the network’s 1984–2009 era, which also functions as a kaleidoscope.
The show features numerous celebrity guests and musical acts. In recent years, slime stunts have been incorporated into the show. The KCAs also host live entertainment. It has also been known to overwhelmingly cover people with the network’s trademark green slime. The series SpongeBob SquarePants has won the most KCA awards, with fifteen overall through the series’ run. Individually, Selena Gomez and Will Smith have both won the most trophies with ten, followed by Amanda Bynes (7). Whoopi Goldberg is the only person to have won a Kids’ Choice Award, along with the mainstream “EGOT” combination of an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony.
