Selena Gomez leads Kids' Choice Award nominations

Selena Gomez leads the individual nominations at the 2016 Kids' Choice Awards with four.

The 23-year-old star's work on 'Hotel Transylvania 2' has earned her a nod for Favourite Voice From an Animated Movie, while she joins Justin Bieber and Taylor Swift in picking up another three nominations in the musical category.

The trio will be doing battle against one another in the Favourite Collaboration category.

Taylor's 'Bad Blood' - which features Kendrick Lamar - is up for the award, as is 'Good For You', which is by Selena feat. A$AP Rocky, and Justin's track with Skrillex and Diplo, 'Where Are U Now'. The three songs face competition from 'Downtown', by Macklemore & Ryan Lewis feat. Eric Nally, Melle Mel, Kool Moe Dee and Grandmaster Caz, 'Like I'm Gonna Lose You' by Meghan Trainor feat. John Legend, and Wiz Khalifa and Charlie Puth's track 'See You Again', to scoop the award on March 12.

Additionally, 'Bad Blood' is also up for Favourite Song of the Year, as is Justin's 'What Do You Mean?', while Taylor and Selena will also contest alongside Adele, Ariana Grande, Meghan Trainor and Nicki Minaj for the Favourite Female Singer category.

Justin's third nomination is for Favourite Male Singer, but he faces competition from Blake Shelton - who will host the Kids' Choice Awards - Drake, Ed Sheeran, Nick Jonas and The Weeknd for the accolade.

But even if he doesn't win, the 22-year-old star is "excited and honoured" just to be nominated.

He told The Hollywood Reporter: "I'm so excited and honoured to be nominated for another three Kids' Choice Awards.

"I have the best fans in the world; thank you all so much. And thanks to Nickelodeon for all the love and support over the years."

Elsewhere, in the TV categories, the stars of 'Modern Family' and 'The Big Bang Theory' have helped both shows pick up four nominations, including nods in the Favourite Family TV Show category.

Jim Parsons and Johnny Galecki will contest for Favourite Male TV Star - Family Show alongside 'Modern Family's Rico Rodriguez, as well as 'Black-ish' star Anthony Anderson, Ben McKenzie from 'Gotham', and 'The Flash' actor Grant Gustin.

'Avengers: Age of Ultron' - which is up for Favourite Movie - scored an impressive three nods in the Favourite Movie Actor category, with its stars Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth and Robert Downey Jr. battling it out for the award, alongside 'Jurassic World' actor Chris Pratt, John Boyega, who played Finn in 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens', and 'Daddy's Home' star Will Ferrell.

'Avengers' actress Scarlett Johansson also scored a nod for her role in the Marvel adventure, in the Favourite Movie Actress category alongside Anna Kendrick, Daisy Ridley, Jennifer Lawrence, Lily James, and Rebel Wilson.

The awards will be handed out in a ceremony televised live on Nickelodeon from the Forum in Inglewood, California.
