Michelle Obama to Be Honored at Kids' Choice Awards

Is Michelle Obama about to get slimed?!

We doubt it, but the First Lady will be honored at Saturday's Nickelodeon's Kids' Choice Awards. The President's wife will be receiving the show's "Big Help" award for her "Let's Move" campaign, which sets out to help cut down on childhood obesity. Obama has been working with the kid's network on the campaign, which has donated $3 million to school and after-school programs for physical play.

"For once we will see all the forces aligning — not just to place blame, but in paving the way forward," said Marva Smalls, chief of staff for the MTV Networks and Nickelodeon Kids and Family Group, of the campaign's progress.

Obama won't be appearing at the awards show this year, but she has taped an acceptance speech that will be shown.

And this might not even be the only award the First Lady goes home with, as she and the Prez are nominated in the "Cutest Couple" category -- though they are up against some pretty tough competition in Twilight's love-triangle players, Edward, Bella, and Jacob.

The show, hosted by Kevin James, airs Saturday, March 27, at 8 p.m. on Nickelodeon.
