Dan Schneider Honored At Kid's Choice Awards- Two Of His Biggest Stars Skip It

At the Kid's Choice Awards on Saturday night Dan Schneider was honored with a lifetime achievement award. Despite him receiving the award, two of the biggest stars he has produced in the past decade, Jennette McCurdy and Miranda Cosgrove both skipped the show.

Like with most awards shows on Nickelodeon and MTV the winners are announced long before the telecast. This ensures that big stars who show up get an award. Jennette actually received more votes than eventual winner Ariana Grande but was told that she would not be receiving the award because of her photo leak scandal. She was also told that if Sam And Cat returns, which is doubtful at this point, that her contract would not be renewed. Dan Schneider could have saved her but chose not to. He is more concerned with looking after himself and finding fresh female talent.

Jennette boycotted the show and Miranda boycotted (even though she was told she won an award) right along with her. When Jennette asked Ariana to also boycott the show Ariana refused. Jennette immediately unfollowed Ariana on Twitter and was a no show at the awards.

Such DRAMA

sandybrook said...

I can see why Jenette boycotted why support a network that wants nothing to do with you. What's not clear is why did Miranda boycott? In sympathy for her or saying something else?

Candyland said...

There have been rumors for years that the Dan Schneider guy is a child molester. Right? This might be those girls finally taking a stand.

sandybrook said...

Yeah its rumored....if that is what she did she should talk to authorities too. Maybe she is about ready to.

Kid's Choice Awards? Really?

Speak up, girls!

Jeanette is a spoiled little brat

All of these little Nik & Dis kids think they are gonna be stars...when their shows end they can't figure out why LA doesn't bow down to them anymore.

Sam and Cat gets big ratings doesn't it? My kid loves it.

By most accounts, Schneider is a nasty pig and if Jennette is on the outs with him, I can understand her boycotting the show. But at the same time, I think she's in for a major wake-up call regarding her career.

She already did some damage to it with the faux semi-nude photo leak that she tried to blame on the basketball player she dated, then mocked on her podcast. The scandal was a non-starter, and many think Jennette leaked the pics herself, and blamed the ex-BF to get her name in the press. I don't think it worked so well. She's going to have problems down the road, I believe.

Not sure what's going with Schneider and Justice, though.

I love Miranda, so everything she does is OK to me, therefore that dude must be a douche at best or a criminal at worse, or something else at the worst.

Beth said...

Isn't this guy the guess to a lot of blinds of inappropriate behavior with minors?

Quite telling that Miranda didn't go either.

Leekalicious said...

I think it's very significant that both Miranda and Jeanette boycotted the awards. They are older now, and able to think past their teen feelings of infatuation with or admiration of, Schneider. I think he has been playing Svengali to teenagers for a few years and going past what should be a proper professional relationship. He is the adult here, working with teenaged girls.

headrot said...

good for these girls and its really sad that more of there friends did not show support for them and what they have likely went through.

i think jennette, for all of her problems, did the right thing when she made a show of separating Ariana from her. if you are really supposed to be friends, something as fundamental and important as this should be something you can back your friend up on. if not, well, you arnt really friends are you?

headrot said...

talking to the authorities about these matters is not anywhere near an easy painless task or decision. while its not necessarily the best choice, it seems completely understandable why they have not come forth yet.

sad

Layna Day said...

Ack! I said Justice. I meant Cosgrove.

Poor Justin said...

Jeanette was open on her Twitter about it. Nickelodeon treated her badly, so she's not going. She made it clear it wasn't over the scandal, as in, she was ashamed or anything.

It was BARELY a scandal, anyway. If you aren't naked, how scandalous can it be? Nickelodeon acting like puritans was just stupid.

That said, Jeanette is actually a talented comedienne. Her vines are generally really funny. I think she'll have a career, no reason why she shouldn't unless she has a habit or something else that makes her hard to work with.

Josh said...

I think there is a lot more. Cosgrove's PR people will never talk about it (she don't want any drama), but I think next days McCurdy's people will talk about it. A lot.

Those leaked pics were boring as shit. If yer gonna go the attention whore route, you have to go full whore. 1/2 assing it screams desperation.

Ron Swanson knows. SFW

CooCooCatchoo said...

Neither Jamie Lynn Spears nor Amanda Bynes were there, either. Hmmmm...
Wonder if RDJ and Dan Schneider bumped into each other backstage. Awkward!
I think that this past weekend's blind about the creeper watching kids in the school play yard was about Dan Schneider.
The Nick girls deserve a lifetime achievement award for having to climb on that big old mountain of goo on a regular basis.

Jennifer H. said...

Well, it's been rumored here, anyway.

LadyWawa said...

The daughter of a mutual friend of mine was recently cast in a new upcoming show produced by Dan Schneider. I told her point blank to keep her eye on him and to never let him be alone with her daughter. She was taken aback by my comment but appreciative. If the rumors are untrue, no harm done. A parent should keep their minor child's best interests in mind (and in this town, that can be easily forgotten as it is easy to get caught up in it all. If the rumors are true, then perhaps her daughter will be spared the experiences of the young Nick stars before her by having her mother looking out for her.

di butler said...

I'm not saying any more, I got read the riot act over a few things I've said here. I wish Spears. Grande, Cosgrove, McCurdy and Bynes, the very best in the future.

FS said...

Well Di, if you can't say anything then that gives some amount of credence to the rumors.

The are horrible stage mothers out there, and there are people who are brandished unfairly with the 'stage mother' name, but I see nothing wrong with the 'silent but ALWAYS present' chaperone.

I hope that one day, as all these Disney/Nick kids reach 30 and 40 and realize their careers cannot be resurrected, they will speak up as a group and name names for all the things that happened to them. Would love it to happen sooner, within the statute of limitations. This is the US version of the BBC's Jimmy Savile.

NaughtyNurse said...

It sounds more like Jennette refused to go after she was told she wouldn't be getting the award due to the leaked photos. Like any spoiled teenage girl, she expected all her friends to sacrifice their own images--and to disappoint their fans--by boycotting the show. Sounds a lot like Gwyneth expecting her friends to boycott Vanity Fair.

Pepper Spink said...

It's been rumoured in more places than here. Little Jamie-Lynn Spears' baby is reportedly one of his spawns.

Merlin D. Bear said...

Ok, I'm really late to the party, so let me see if I gots an idea of exactly what's going on.
Blonde actress was probably shtupping or being shtupped by Schneider, who's apparent rep precedes him.
Blonde actress is a Nick property, probably for that particular subset, A if not A+ in value.
Blonde actress tries to do a Miley, and it fails. Miserably.
Result, possible cancellation of current cash cow, and if show survives, it'll be sans Blond Actress.
Schneider planning to continue his behaviors, (cough cough).
(Can I get a DNA test here? )
Awards ceremony boycotted by Brunette, the other A list Nick property in support of the whole Nick dropping Blond, possibly a solidarity thing between a shared history?
Is that this situation in a nutshell?

Regardless, and completely off topic I'd pay to see the results of a DNA test between his and Jamie Lynn's baby. Just sayin'

Deadline put this out late this afternoon Eastern time.

Sam And Cat Drama

Faithnz said...

To be fair, she was told she received more votes but wouldnt be given the award. Id be upset too. The fans voted for her, she should have been given the award and expect back up from her friends.
The rest of it, eh I dont know. Until someone actually speaks up its all speculation

Unknown said...

Dan Schneider's molested more teen actresses and so many people know about it. I think with some of the talent starting to rebel it's only a matter of time before they start going to the police and I wouldn't be surprised if there isn't an ongoing investigation in this pervert, and it wouldn't take much to get his victims interviewed to get the same story over and over. This guy shouldn't have been honored, he should have been arrested. If only all his victims would contact the police, he could be stopped and be put in prison where he belongs with all the other child rapists. Shame on Nickelodeon, shame on them.

Scallywag said...

He's getting a lifetime achievement award at 48? That's a bit weird.
