Alexandra Neri, who works as a dubbing manager for Paramount’s Worldwide Distribution group, is the latest lucky Viacom employee to score free tickets to a tentpole awards show.
Below, she tells us what it’s like to win an employee sweepstakes, how impressed she was by the Nickelodeon’s “top notch” production, and why she’s proud to work for a company that let’s its employees engage in the magic of live events.
It’s slime time again. Nickelodeon has unveiled the nominees for this year’s Kids’ Choice Awards, the network’s premiere live event. Voting is open in select categories and will continue in a four-week wave.
The KCAs may be all about the kids, but there are some pretty groovy grown-ups nominated for honors. John Cena, pro wrestler and now Nickelodeon star in his own right, returns to host, while Nick star JoJo Siwa will perform live at the event. Beyonce, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Taylor Swift and Wonder Woman star Gal Gadot are in the running for orange blimps, along with many more big names.
Behind an outstanding slate of animation, young children’s programming, and special activations, Nickelodeon locked in 18 nominations for the 2017 Daytime Emmy Awards, a rousing affirmation of the net’s broad impact and influence on the television landscape. MTV’sTransformation, which documents the struggles of young transgender individuals, grabbed an additional nomination, bringing Viacom’s total to 19.
For about four years now, American adults have been obsessed with a presidential election that happens… every four years. And though Nick gave you the chance to have your say in that race, they decided that they won’t make you wait another four years to stamp another ballot – it’s time to cast your votes for the 2017 Kids’ Choice Awards (KCA).
The awards show will hit your screens on Saturday, March 11, but voting is already going on across 28 categories, including some pretty cool new ones, including “Favorite Frenemies,” “Most Wanted Pet,” and “#Squad.” Start voting right now by clicking here. Want more KCA? There’s plenty here.
