(ids' Choice looks Rosie once more T i 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'Don-nell 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 Spyi "I keep it in my office at FWTK 60 21f51)BnohtendGood FOOD 44 (49) Ready Set Cook) GOLF 24 leaderoeari Report HB02 1fl (11 45) Moino: The Substitute (1996) Tom Berenqer Actum R ?00)8251510 HGTV 45 Decorattnt Certs MAX 21 32(17)(1158)Metr: The Gtanmtr Miff ( 1 996 I Steven Seagal (Action R (1 30) (CC) 5739452 ma M ll I7) "i 441471 SHO 15 (M) Meele: Balance of Pom1997) 8'HyBiann (Martial an R (1 45) (CC) 1662704 ST AW (15) (11 5) Meeir Casino (19951 Robert Da N"0 (Cnmt drama R 4 00 (CC) ww?029 TCM (7) mint: To Hav ant Mat far 1 1944) Humphrey Bogart lAUvwiturt.
