An Absentee Selena Gomez Takes Home A Kids’ Choice Award

Selena Gomez Takes Home A Kids' Choice Award featureFifth Harmony may have been a big winner at Saturday night’s Kids’ Choice Awards, but the ladies weren’t the only ones. Selena Gomez beat out a crowded field of superstars to take home the coveted “Favorite Female Singer” award, topping the likes of Adele, Beyoncé, Rihanna and Ariana Grande.

Zendaya confirmed suspicions that she’s running the game for actresses in kids’ shows. After making her case for best-dressed on the orange carpet, she took home the trophy for “Favorite Female TV Star.”

Most of the movie and TV winners came from animated hits like “SpongeBob SquarePants” and spirited sequels like “Finding Dory.” “Suicide Squad” nabbed another trophy to put next to its Oscar. Meanwhile, the rest of the music categories had some interesting results.

In what Taylor Swift might consider a PR win, Calvin Harris beat out a bevy of Justin Bieber collaborators to earn a blimp for “Favorite DJ/EDM Artist.” The Chainsmokers and Meghan Trainor both took two losses. And Little Mix made a case for itself as a global phenomenon.

See more of the winners below. See all of them here.

Zendaya and Noah Cyrus Lead The Pack On Orange Carpet At The Kids’ Choice Awards

Zendaya and Noah Cyrus Lead The Pack On Orange Carpet At The Kids' Choice Awards featureNickelodeon’s Kids’ Choice Awards went down like a bucket of slime on Saturday night. Stars hit the orange carpet, some taking the opportunity to dress down but others wearing looks that would’ve been at home on any red carpet, as well.

Zendaya turned some serious heads in a copper slip dress. The dress is an advanced look that hasn’t come out yet from Zendaya’s clothing line. Given the way it fits, no one can blame Zendaya for wanting to take it for a test spin. It was a notable example of how to wear an orange shade without looking like a traffic cone.

Noah Cyrus went for a more casual vibe in pink heels, a velvet skirt and a simple white tee with the words “Girl Power” on the front. The look had shades of something Miley Cyrus might wear, with a statement piece and some unusual accessories. But it was a little more understated that most of Miley’s looks.

Other stars like Dove Cameron, Miranda Cosgrove and Bea Miller wore flashier casual looks.

See pics from the orange carpet below.
