Miley Cyrus loses four times at the Kids' Choice Awards!

March 28, 2009 | 11:39 pm

The Kids' Choice Awards can be, granted, just as illogical as kids themselves, but a series of losses on Saturday night may suggest a trend: Are kids turning against Miley Cyrus? Oh, yeah — and Harry Potter too?

This year, Miley Cyrus led with the most nominations at the Kids' Choice Awards: three. Technically, she ended up losing twice, but really she got clobbered four times if you count the defeats of her TV show, "Hannah Montana," and film "Bolt." One personal nomination she lost was especially ominous because it was in a category she's dominated the previous two years: favorite TV actress. Selena Gomez ("Wizards of Waverly") ended up pulling off a magic trick last night.


Miley Cyrus did nab a separate prize that she also claimed in 2008 — favorite female singer — but that was an upset considering she prevailed over Rihanna, who was presumed to have a huge sympathy vote following her recent ordeal with Chris Brown (who withdrew his Kids' Choice nominations as public outrage put pressure on him to do so).

Miley Cyrus almost got booted out of the award races too. She ended up enduring despite triggering her own scandals as various new sets of photos kept surfacing, raising questions about her status as a teen role model. Maybe now it's clear why Miley Cyrus cried when she claimed her one, lonely orange blimp award last night. She wasn't putting on fake humility as she wept, "I really thought I was going to lose! So thank you, guys!"

"Hannah Montana" lost favorite TV show to "iCarly," which pulled off a jaw-dropping upset, and Miley's financially successful feature film, "Hannah Montana and Miley Cyrus: Best of Both Worlds Tour" ($70 million worldwide), wasn't nominated for favorite movie.

That Kids' Choice Award for favorite film ended up going to "High School Musical 3: Senior Year," which may not seem like a surprise, but, wait: It beat "The Dark Knight."

Speaking of movie upsets, the biggest at the Kids' Choice Awards this year was "Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa" beating "Wall-E," "Kung-Fu Panda" and even Miley Cyrus' "Bolt" (she performed the voice of "Penny" and co-wrote and performed the song "I Thought I Lost You"). Miley also lost the orange blimp for favorite voice from an animated movie, which went to Jack Black (Po, "Kung Fu Panda").

There was at least one shockeroo among the winners: Indianapolis Colts quarterback Peyton Manning out-pacing Olympic superstar Michael Phelps for fave male athlete (sunk by his own personal scandals?). And maybe it's no surprise that the "Twilight" book series wins anything, but its victory at the Kids' Choice Awards is notable because it beat the "Harry Potter" series!

i'm glad harry potter lose.thats mean harry potter fans grewn up not kids anymore:)

I found the Kid's Choice Awards very disappointing last night. I'm 15 years old, and I know it may sound childish but I enjoy watching the KCA's because it has been a tradition to watch them with my family for many years. What was disappointing to me was some of the racy comments that were made during the KCA's. One that I remember distinctly was when Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson had to dress up like Miley Cyrus. When she emerged next to him they compared their outfits. Dwayne then proceded to ask Miley if she was also wearing a thong! Chris Rock also proceded to make a black joke and there were many other small and seemingly missed comments made by the adults hosting the KID'S Choice Awards.

she didnt lose 4 times she lost 3 she was only nomatined 4 times.
so she won 1 and lost the rest!


Just a note to all of you who seem to enjoy that fact that Miley only won the best female singer award - just remember that icarly is a show on the network that presents the Kids Choice awards - so it was a given that somehow that loser show would win an award & as far as tv actress - there is the sympathy vote for Selena since Nick Jonas supposedly broke up with her. But Miley is still the Queen - with 13,750,000 albums sold (see Billboard April magazine) & her show tops all of the above shows every week. There are many who want to be Miley - but there is only ONE Miley. Miley is #1 - and she laughs all the way to the bank!

Being a kid who watches both Wizards of Waverly Place and Hannah Montana, and compared Selena's acting with Miley's, this is a complete upset. While Selena is talented, if it weren't for rumors of a Youtube feud with Miley and a relationship with Nick Jonas, she wouldn't have won, because nobody would have known who she was. Unfortunately, it seems as if some kids are voting for other people, but probably as a typical young person act; assuming what most people will vote for, and vote for someone else. Juvenile, but that's why they call it the Kids Choice Awards.

Boy, It's so obvious that you would like to see Cyrus fall flat on her face. It's been a while since I have seen so much hate directed at someone. Tsk, tsk, tsk. actually care about the Kid's Choice Awards? Even when I was a kid I remembered how stupid those awards were. I mean, "Batman & Robin" was nominated for Favorite Movie of 1997, fer cryin' out loud!
