Hollywood is about to be slimed!

The nominees for Nickelodeon's 2017 Kids Choice Awards were announced Thursday morning, Justin Timberlake leading with seven nominations, followed by Kevin Hart with six. While past nominees such as Selena Gomez, Fifth Harmony, Justin Bieber and Ellen DeGeneres are up for awards again this year, a slew of newcomers have entered the slime arena.

Ben Affleck, Rowan Blanchard, Chris Pine, The Chainsmokers, Twenty One Pilots, Zachary Quinto, Idris Elba, Jojo Siwa, Kristen Wiig and Felicity Jones are among the stars nominated for the first time. Also being added to the roster are television shows that include Black-ish, Fuller House, Supergirl, Paradise Run and The Loud House.

The 2017 Kids' Choice Awards, which are voted on by kids, this year features nine new categories, including Favorite Frenemies, Favorite #squad and Most Wanted Pet. A staple of each KCA is the anticipated moment when green slime is splashed onto various stars.

Actor and WWE star John Cena will host the 2017 Kids’ Choice Awards, which will take place at the USC Galen Center in Los Angeles and air live on Saturday, March 11, from 8 p.m. ET/PT.
