Super Bowl Champion and two-time Emmy-Award winner Michael Strahan (Good Morning America, Strahan and Sara, The $100,000 Pyramid, Fox NFL Sunday) is set to host Nickelodeon’s Kids’ Choice Sports 2019, an event bursting with epic slimings and sheer sports ‘fan’-demonium. Voting begins today for the only show celebrating kids’ love of sports, their favorite athletes and the year’s most unforgettable sports moments. Kids’ Choice Sports 2019 will be taped on Thursday, July 11, from Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, Calif., and premiere Saturday, Aug. 10, at 8:00 p.m. (ET/PT) on Nickelodeon.

“Nickelodeon’s Kids’ Choice Sports is a one-of-a-kind awards show that brings all-star athletes, kids and of course, slime together,” said Strahan. “When I hosted the first year of the show, I loved it—the energy, stunts, kids, crowd and slime… a lot of slime! Hosting this show has been one of my favorite things I’ve done, and this year is going to be the biggest, the baddest and the slimiest.”

The top nominees this year with four nominations each are Serena Williams, Stephen Curry and James Harden. First-time nominees Patrick Mahomes, Saquon Barkley, Baker Mayfield and Naomi Osaka, join LeBron James, Tom Brady, Alex Morgan and Carli Lloyd with three nominations each. Other first-time nominees vying for coveted blimps include Mookie Betts, Nikki Bella, Stephanie Gilmore, Tori Bowie, Blake Snell, Chris Sale, Aaron Donald, Khalil Mack, Alex Honnold, JuJu Smith-Schuster and Trae Young.

Beginning today, kids will be able to cast their votes for their favorite athletes and all-star moments at www.NickPlay.com and the Screens Up App. Nine categories are new to Nickelodeon’s Kids’ Choice Sports 2019: Favorite Esports Star, featuring the top pros in competitive gaming; and Favorite Athlete, across the world of sports–soccer, golf, tennis, baseball, basketball, football, hockey and gymnastics.

NickPlay.com will serve as the official destination for Kids’ Choice Sports 2019 and will pair with the show to feature all-star live votes, polls, sports-themed short-form videos, trivia, backstage reactions, and more. As the show’s competitors face off during the show, users will be able to join in the fun through the interactive experience throughout the night.

Users will also be able to access all day of show content on the Screens Up app.
