The Oscars may be over, but awards season isn’t quite done yet — at least not for the kids.

Nickelodeon’s annual Kids’ Choice Awards, celebrating children’s favorites in film, television, music and social media, will be taking place on March 23, and Double Dare host Liza Koshy has just announced the nominees.

Taylor Swift, 29, is up for multiple nominations, contending for favorite global music star, favorite song and favorite female artist, PEOPLE confirms exclusively.

The Grammy winner is up against Davido, BLACKPINK, Troye Sivan, David Guetta, J Balvin and HRVY for favorite global music star.

Besides Swift’s nomination for “Delicate,” nominees for favorite song are “In My Blood” (Shawn Mendes), “In my Feelings” (Drake), “Natural” (Imagine Dragons), “thank u, next” (Ariana Grande) and “Youngblood” (5 Seconds of Summer).

The favorite female artist list of nominees also includes Beyoncé, Camila Cabello, Cardi B and Selena Gomez.

DJ Khaled will be hosting this year’s awards — his made-up catchphrases, huge personality, and hilarious constant Snapchats of his daily life has made him popular with kids all around the world — and they’ll be able to join Khaled at the biggest kids’ party of the year on all Nickelodeon screens and platforms.

Swift’s nominations come amid fan speculation she is gearing up to release her seventh studio album. Over the last several days, she’s posted several Instagram photos that have stirred up plenty of excitement among Swifties hoping for new music.

In the past, the singer has indeed dropped numerical hints before the release of her albums. In what may be the first “countdown” photo, Swift posted a breezy photo with seven palm trees. Then on Oscars night, she shared a photo of herself sitting on the sixth step of a staircase.

And on Monday she shared a photo featuring similar aesthetic of herself posing behind five holes in a fence.

Fans have been analyzing her recent social media posts — and even combing through her hit reputation music videos — for clues.

Swift herself poked fun at the notions on Wednesday morning. Posting a photo of her cat Olivia staring openmouthed, the popstar captioned it, “She just read all the theories.”

Beginning Tuesday, children can vote for their Favorite Kids’ Choice Awards nominees on the website, KCA2019.com or the Screens Up app on supported iPad, iPhone, and Android devices. They can also vote on social media platforms Twitter and Instagram or, if they want to wait until the ceremony begins, there’s always live voting.
