What do the kids like these days?

You know, just the usual: giant blue aliens, sparkly effete vampires and their hirsute canid rivals, and, of course, Miley Cyrus.

So go today's nominations for the 23rd Annual Nickeolodeon Kids' Choice Awards.

New Moon scored a quartet of noms for Favorite Movie, Favorite Movie Actor (Taylor Lautner) and Cutest Couple for both Lautner and Kristen Stewart and Stewart and Robert Pattinson. That's shaping up to be a tough race, with the Avatar twosome of Zoe Saldana and Sam Worthington, and the White House twosome of President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle rounding out the category. The Twilight series also rated a nod for Fave Book.

Cyrus, meanwhile, was nominated for four solo prizes: Favorite TV Actress for Hannah Montana, Favorite Movie Actress for Hannah Montana: The Movie, Favorite Female Singer and Favorite Song for "Party in the USA."

Kevin James will host the slime-arrific proceedings, which will go down March 27 in Los Angeles.
