Add Nickelodeon's Kids' Choice Awards to the list of Hollywood events being postponed amid the global coronavirus crisis.

"The Kids’ Choice Awards scheduled for March 22, 2020, in Los Angeles is being postponed in consideration of the safety and well-being of every person involved with the show, which is our top priority. We will have further information about a new date in the future," Nickelodeon said Wednesday in a statement.
