Kids' Choice looks Rosie once more M home. My house isn't really filled with mementos of my career, so you wouldn't even know I lived there, but that's the one award I keep prominently displayed. Nickelodeon always has been very supportive of me, and it provides quality entertainment for America's kids. I wish it had been around when I was a kid. "I give the people there a lot of credit for pulling together an award show that's as much fun to watch as it is to participate in. They get (performers and presenters) who really love kids, and who value what kids think and feel. That's important. The celebrities aren't there just for the sake of putting celebrities on." The kid inside O'Donnell is inspired by the Kids' Choice Awards: "I've always had a connection to kids. A therapist will tell you that because my mom died when I was 10, there's some arrested development here. I do feel more of a kinship to many kids, though, than I do to some adults." Among the nominees in the 11th annual Kids' Choice Awards: Favorite Movie: Batman & Robin; Liar Liar, Men in Black; Titanic. Favorite Television Show: Home Improvement, Kenan & Kel; Sabrina, the Teenage Witch; Sister, Sister. Kids' Choice Awards: 8 p.m. Saturday, Nickelodeon 799655 By Jay Bobbin Tribune Media Services She's the best friend award shows have had in a long time. Still riding high on the success of her syndicated weekday talk show, Rosie O'Donnell has shared the wealth by serving as host of two ceremonies the Tony Awards and the Kids' Choice Awards and increasing their visibility through her involvement The current Daytime Emmy nominee will preside over both events again this year. First up is the 11th annual Kids' Choice Awards, which Nickelodeon will present Saturday night at 8 from UCLA's Pauley Pavilion in Los Angeles. For the first time, youngsters will join celebrities to present the honors to winners determined largely via call-in and on-line votes from Nickelodeon viewers. "Last year," O'Donnell recalls, "after rehearsing for five hours in a theater with no air-conditioning, then running from one end of the place to the other during two-minute commercial breaks, I said, 'If I ever say I'll do this again, shoot me.' Sure enough, I'm doing it again." However, O'Donnell may get more of a comfort zone this Rosie O'Donnell will preside over both the Kids' Choice Awards and the Tony Awards this year. time, since she's also credited as co-producer of the Kids' Choice Awards. "I think it's really great that kids are so involved in this," she says. "Just look at how many of them vote every year. They're so enthusiastic about it, you can see it really matters to them." It matters to O'Donnell, too, as proven by the special place she has for the Kids' Choice Award she won for the Nickelodeon-produced movie Harriet the Spy "I keep it in my office at CMTV Non-Stop Country .7883259 CNBC Best of Riven Live .1466553 CNN CNN International COM Movie: Cheech S Chonp SMf Smoi(1983)Cheecri Marin Wasted comedians wander into Amster 16 Tales From lie Crypt fFlre ey Nile Star Trek: Voyager NightMM C9 Novo .65476 CD Psalms . kit Investigative Retorts .957582 AMC (1:06) Movie: Slfrtwr (1942!
