Just as Jon Stewart is returning to the podium to host the Feb. 24 Oscars, so is Jack Black back to emcee the 21st annual Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards, set for March 29 at UCLA’s Pauley Pavilion, reports Variety.

With four nominations, Shrek the Third leads the field in the film category. Besides being in the running for Favorite Animated Movie, Mike Meyers, Cameron Diaz and Eddie Murphy each have a shot in the voice categories.

Favorite movie choices include Alvin and the Chipmunks, Are We Done Yet?, Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End and Transformers, while among the TV shows in competition are Drake & Josh, Hannah Montana, iCarly and The Suite Life of Zack and Cody.

Music and sports are also covered at the awards, where winners are also frequently covered in green slime.

Black, 38, was last in charge of the event in 2006. His new movie is Be Kind, Rewind. –Stephen M. SilvermanMatt Sayles/AP
