Selena Gomez lands Kids’ Choice nods

Selena Gomez has been named in two categories at Nickelodeon’s 26th Annual Kids’ Choice Awards.

The full list of contenders for the annual awards ceremony will be released later today, but the nominations for Favourite TV Actress, Actor, Show, and Reality Show categories have already been announced.

According to Entertainment Weekly, Selena Gomez is up for two awards for her role in the Wizards of Waverly Place.

The brunette beauty will be competing in the Favourite TV actress and Favourite TV show categories at the ceremony on March 23.

Miranda Cosgrove (iCarly), Bridgit Mendler (Good Luck Charlie) and Victoria Justice (Victorious) are also among the Favourite TV Actress nominees, with their respective shows competing against Selena's for Favourite TV Show.

Miranda thanked fans for her show's nod at the upcoming awards ceremony, gushing: “I’m so honoured to be nominated and thrilled that iCarly was recognised by our amazing fans."

In the Favourite TV Actor category, a host of first time nominees were announced.

Carlos Pena (Big Time Rush), Lucas Cruikshank (Marvin Marvin), Jake T. Austin (Wizards of Waverly Place) and Ross Lynch (Austin & Ally) are all up the gong.

Meanwhile, the nominees for Favourite Reality Show are America’s Got Talent, American Idol, The Voice and Wipeout.

Josh Duhamel will be hosting at this year's event.

Speaking of his role at the popular show, the actor said in a statement earlier this year: "Nickelodeon's Kids' Choice Awards is a great event that celebrates kids by honouring their opinions and taps into the kid in all of us. I have a lot of secret plans for when I host the awards, but I can tell you I'm excited to lead millions of kids into total crazy fun, chaos… and, of course, endless slime!"

Josh follows a list of stars who have previously hosted the awards, including Will Smith who took to the stage last year.
