Kids' Choice Awards 2013: LeBron James and Danica Patrick Win Favorite Athletes
Winners for this year's Kids' Choice Awards were announced at the live show held on March 23 at the Galen Center in Los Angeles, California. LeBron James and Danica Patrick grabbed Favorite Male Athlete and Favorite Male Athlete respectively.
James beat Tim Tebow, Michael Phelps and Shaun White. He was presented the award by "Glee" actor Cory Monteith and Olympian gymnast Gabrielle Douglas. He was unable to attend the show so he sent a video message to thank fans.
Patrick pushed aside first-time nominee Douglas and fellow frequent nominees, tennis players Serena Williams and Venus Williams. The GoDaddy spokesmodel attended the Nickelodeon event with her boyfriend, fellow NASCAR Sprint Cup rookie Ricky Stenhouse Jr..
Simon Cowell won Favorite Villain in combined TV and movie fields, thanks to his mean persona in the judging panel of "The X Factor (US)". He beat Tom Hiddleston ("The Avengers"), Reed Alexander ("iCarly"), and Julia Roberts ("Mirror Mirror").
In other pop categories of the 26th annual KCA Awards, "The Hunger Games" series was named Favorite Book, "Temple Run" was dubbed Favorite App, and "Just Dance 4" was branded Favorite Video Game.
Also honoring the best in TV, music and movie, the KCA Awards featured performances by Ke$ha, Christina Aguilera and Pitbull and appearances by Kristen Stewart, Selena Gomez, Katy Perry and many more. Host Josh Duhamel said a record-breaking 350 million votes had been cast for the show.
