Rosie O'Donnell didn't get her talk show nominated by kids as their favorite program of the year, but she is a nominee in the favorite movie actress category of Nickelodeon's 10th annual Kids Choice Awards.

O'Donnell, a perennial favorite nominee and former co-host of the program, is nominated for her role in Nickelodeon's first theatrical movie, Harriet the Spy. She is joined by two other Kids Choice Awards favorites and former hosts, Whoopi Goldberg and Whitney Houston, in the movie actress category, along with Michelle Pfeiffer.

Goldberg is nominated for her role in Eddie, Houston for her role in The Preacher's Wife and Pfeiffer for her role in One Fine Day.

This year's show will be telecast live from the Grand Olympic Auditorium in Los Angeles at 8 p.m. April 19.

Kids may cast their votes for winners during the next few weeks on ballots at McDonald's restaurants, through an 800 number, through phone cards in selected Post cereal boxes and Kraft Singles and through the Nickelodeon site on America Online.
