Bring on the green goo, er, slime!

The nominations are out for Nickelodeon's 2012 Kids' Choice Awards, and although we're super excited to see Will Smith host (he's just so great with kids, right?!), we're even more excited to see who snags some of these awards.

Because believe us, there are some big names and hefty competition up in here.

Harry Potter continues it's legacy, scoring four nominations including Favorite Movie,  Favorite Movie Actor for Daniel Radcliffe and Favorite Movie Actress for Emma Watson. Joining them in the movie category are a bunch of little blue creatures otherwise known as The Smurfs with three nominations (yes, Katy Perry got a nom for her voice-over) and Kung Fu Panda also with three noms.

Before you freak out, Twilight and Kristen Stewart are also up for some awards. Feel better?

LMFAO, Katy Perry and Taylor Swift are battling it out with all three receiving two nods for Favorite Group (LMFAO), Favorite Female Singer (Perry and Swift) and Favorite Song. Oddly enough, Justin Bieber and the man who brought on Bieber Fever, Usher, are against each other for Favorite Male Singer. Gasp!

Nickelodeon's iCarly stars Jennette McCurdy, Nathan Kress and Jerry Trainor go head-to-head for the Funniest TV Sidekick category, while American Idol grabs its eighth nomination for Favorite Reality Show up against America's Funniest Home Videos, America's Got Talent and Wipeout.

The awards will be handed out March 31 in Los Angeles. Here's the complete list of nominees.
