Nickelodeon's Kids' Choice Awards Also Getting Pushed Back Over Coronavirus Concerns

By Mario Perez

The Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Awards was set to take place on Sunday, March, 22 at the Forum in Inglewood California. The event was set to be hosted by Chance the Rapper. These things might still happen, but they are not going to happen on March 22!

Nickelodeon has already released a statement regarding their decision to postpone the event. This is just one in the long list of events that had been set for upcoming dates and are getting the ax over Coronavirus concerns.

The statement released by Nickelodeon read as follows, “The Kids’ Choice Awards scheduled for March 22, 2020, in Los Angeles is being postponed in consideration of the safety and well-being of every person involved with the show, which is our top priority. We will have further information about a new date in the future.”

At this time, of course, there is no set date for the show to go on. It is unclear whether or not the company will want to stick with the Forum as their venue. Why does this matter?

The Deal With Major Cancelations

The reason why we mentioned the possibility of choosing another venue had to do with local health and safety guidelines. At this point, major events are being canceled nationwide. So, it certainly was a matter of time before this particular show got postponed as well.

A lot of these major events are being postponed by local regulations that are not allowing people to gather in large crowds for fear of the virus spreading. If LA county has a ban in place longer than other parts of the country the show could look for another venue.

Chances of the Event Being Cancelled Altogether

Are there any chances that the event just ends up being a small press conference where the winners are announced? With this particular award show, it is not likely to happen. Since really what is important for Nickelodeon is the event itself and the money and publicity that it brings in.

If it was the Oscars, a small ceremony to just announce the winners could be possible. In this case, though, we can't rule out the possibility of the 2020 Kids Choice Awards of never taking place.

How Is Everything Going To Be Rescheduled?

Although coronavirus is no laughing matter and we have to make sure that we take all of the safety precautions necessary it is something that is going to pass sooner or later. At one point things are going to have to get back to normal. When that happens there are going to be a lot of things that need rescheduling.

We are probably not going to have enough venues to cram everything in at that point. So, there is a good chance that some of the things that are said to be postponed now could never really take place!
