‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’ Wins Favorite Movie At 2014 Kids’ Choice Awards

Catching Fire actress Willow Shields (Primrose Everdeen) was in attendance last night at the 2014 Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards, where The Hunger Games: Catching Fire won the top prize of Favorite Movie. The event, which took place on March 29, 2014 at the University of Southern California’s Galen Center in Los Angeles, California, celebrated its 27th annual show, which is based upon votes collected by Nickelodeon viewers.

Catching Fire had also received three additional nominations, one for Jennifer Lawrence as Favorite Movie Actor, and two for Jennifer Lawrence and Jena Malone as Favorite Female Buttkicker. Lawrence ended up taking both categories for Catching Fire.

While the Catching Fire movie burned up the competition in all of its nominated categories, The Hunger Games trilogy lost out in the Favorite Book Series category to Diary of a Wimpy Kid. It is worth noting, however, that the series won for the category at the 2013 Kids’ Choice Awards.

Host Mark Wahlberg was dubbed “Best Slime of the Night,” as seen in this video from Nickelodeon. The host had been bragging throughout the event that he was “unslimeable,” but was eventually done in by his three kids in attendance.

“I can’t believe my own kids turned on me!” he cried.
