Rosie returns as Nick Kids' Choice host

HOLLYWOOD (Variety) - Rosie O'Donnell will return for her sixth headlining gig at the 15th annual Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Awards April 20.

O'Donnell will likely continue her hosting stint on the popular kudocast -- airing live this year from Santa Monica's Barker Hangar -- even after she leaves her talk show this May. A Nick spokesman said the cable channel should "continue to have an ongoing relationship with Rosie" after this season, since she is a "longtime friend of Nick."

This year's kiddie favorites mirror what most of the country seems to like, with box office hit "Shrek" and ratings champ "Friends" leading the nominations. "Shrek" is up for five awards, including best movie and book. "Friends," with four nods, will battle it out in the TV show, TV actor (Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry) and TV actress (Jennifer Aniston) categories.

Other nominees include "Dr. Dolittle 2," "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone" and "Rush Hour 2" for picture; "Buffy the Vampire Slayer," "Lizzie McGuire" and "7th Heaven" for TV series; and the Backstreet Boys, Destiny's Child, Dream and 'N Sync for singing group.
