MIKE MYERS, CO-HOST, NICKELODEON'S 17TH ANNUAL KIDS' CHOICE AWARDS


Mike Myers, one of the most multifaceted performers of his generation, takes center stage with Cameron Diaz as co-host of Nickelodeon's 17th Annual Kids' Choice Awards -- the only awards show where kids can vote for their favorite actors, musicians, and athletes. Arguably Myers' most vocal of audiences to date, thousands of screaming kid-fans will welcome him to Pauley Pavilion in Los Angeles on Saturday, April 3 for his inaugural year as co-host of the show. Myers, himself a two-time Nickelodeon's Kids' Choice Award nominee for Favorite Movie Actor in 2003 for Austin Powers 3 and Favorite Voice from an Animated Movie in 2002, accepted an award for Best Movie in 2003 for the third installment of the Austin Powers series, "Austin Powers in Goldmember."

Born and raised in Toronto, Canada, Myers began his professional career the day he graduated from high school. He took his final exams at nine o'clock in the morning, auditioned for Toronto's famed Second City comedy troupe at noon and was hired at three in the afternoon. This ultimately led to Myers joining Chicago's Second City Troupe, an association that would change his life forever. "Saturday Night Live" producer Lorne Michaels' discovery of Myers at Second City led to his debut as a featured performer and writer on the show in 1989.

For his groundbreaking work on "Saturday Night Live," Myers was nominated for an Emmy for Best Performance in a Comedy or Variety Show and won an Emmy for Best Writing for Comedy or Variety Show. Among the characters that Myers made popular performing on SNL are German talk show host, Dieter; Linda Richman in "Coffee Talk;" the hyperactive-hypoglycemic Phillip; Lothar of the Hill People; Simon the boy in the bathtub; Ron Wood and Mick Jagger.

Myers successfully brought his popular SNL character, Wayne Campbell, to the big screen in Wayne's World, which he also wrote. The film broke box office records and has grossed over $200 million to date. In 1993, he reprised the role of Wayne Campbell in the hit sequel, "Wayne's World 2," also written by Myers. Between Wayne's World releases, Myers starred as an eccentric Scottish father and his first-generation Scottish-American son in the romantic comedy, "So I Married an Axe Murderer." In 1998 he appeared in Miramax's ensemble drama, "54," starring Ryan Phillipe, Salma Hayek, Neve Campbell and Sela Ward, in which he earned critical acclaim for his portrayal of nightclub owner Steve Rubell.

In 1997, Myers created, wrote, produced and starred in the smash hit "Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery." Austin Powers is a fashion photographer/swinger/spy who was cryogenically frozen in the 60's and was thawed in the 90's in order to capture his diabolical nemesis Dr. Evil (also played by Myers). "Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery" grossed over $200 million to date. The success of the first Austin Powers created an enormous following for the character and had a tremendous impact on our culture.

In 1999, Myers wrote, produced, and starred, in "Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me" in which he reprised the roles of 'Austin Powers' and 'Dr. Evil.' This second installment of the series also introduced a hilarious new character, an overweight Scottish double agent named Fat Bastard. In the first weekend the film out-grossed what the original Austin Powers made in its entire domestic theatrical run. The movie has garnered various awards including several MTV Movie Awards, People's Choice, Grammy, and Blockbuster Entertainment awards for both films. Myers himself earned an American Comedy Award for Funniest Actor in a Movie for his work in the film. And in 2003, Myers wrote, produced and starred in the highly successful "Austin Powers in Goldmember," the third installment of the "Austin Powers" series.

In total box office, the Austin Powers series has grossed nearly one billion dollars making it the highest grossing comedy franchise of all time. With a worldwide gross nearing $300M, Austin Powers in Goldmember has out-grossed its two predecessors making it the only third installment of a comedy to ever do so.

Myers is also known for lending his voice to the Dreamworks animated feature "Shrek", a modern-day fairy tale about a misunderstood ogre. The film won the Academy Award in the Best Animated Feature Film category and was nominated for a Golden Globe Award. It was also nominated and awarded the People's Choice award in 2002. Shrek grossed a total of $478 million worldwide. The success of the Austin Powers series and Shrek makes Myers the only actor to ever have three $200M-grossing releases in a row.

Most recently, Myers starred in the blockbuster live action film, Dr. Seuss' "The Cat in the Hat," a Universal Pictures/Dreamworks/Imagine Films co-production. Myers stars as the mischievous feline in a striped stove-piped hat. The film also stars Alec Baldwin, Kelly Preston and Dakota Fanning.

Myers who is scheduled to rejoin Eddie Murphy and Cameron Diaz in "Shrek 2," slated for release in 2004 -- has starred in four number-one movies in a row, with each film having opened at over $40 million and grossing more than $100 million each.

Myers received a star on the Walk of Fame in Hollywood, California in July 2002, for his impressive achievements. He will be honored this year with the 'Jack Benny Award' by the student body of the University of California at Los Angeles, and the 2003 AFI Star Award at U.S. Comedy Arts Festival sponsored by HBO in Aspen, and a star on the Canada's Walk of Fame.



CAMERON DIAZ, CO-HOST, NICKELODEON'S 17TH ANNUAL KIDS' CHOICE AWARDS


Cameron Diaz takes center stage with Mike Myers as co-host of Nickelodeon's 17th Annual Kids' Choice Awards -- the only awards show where kids can vote for their favorite actors, musicians, and athletes. Airing live on April 3 from Los Angeles, this is Diaz's inaugural year as co-host. Diaz first made her mark on the awards show as the very first winner of Nickelodeon's Kids' Choice Burp Award in 2001. Since then, she has been nominated for Favorite Voice from an Animated Movie in 2002 for her work in "Shrek" and has participated in the show as a presenter. Last year's show also honored Diaz and her famous "Charlie's Angeles" friends Drew Barrymore and Lucy Liu with a first-ever "noodle" sliming.

Diaz made her feature film debut at age 21, captivating moviegoers as femme fatale Tina Carlisle in "The Mask." In addition to becoming one of Jim Carrey's biggest hits, "The Mask" gained distinction as the film that launched Diaz's career in motion pictures.

As a follow-up to "The Mask," Diaz chose a small, independent film called "The Last Supper" with a first-time feature director. The black comedy, released by Sony Pictures Entertainment, gave Diaz the chance to play a condescending, liberal graduate student amongst a talented ensemble cast that included Annabeth Gish, Ron Eldard, Jonathan Penner and Courtney B. Vance. An art house hit, "The Last Supper" was the beginning of two years of non-stop work in feature films.

Her third feature was writer/director Steven Baigelman's offbeat love story, "Feeling Minnesota," in which Diaz co-starred with Keanu Reeves and Vincent D'Onofrio, playing a white trash bride who falls in love with her brother-in-law. She went on to play a cold, manipulative, New Yorker in Edward Burns eagerly-anticipated follow-up to his critically-acclaimed "The Brothers McMullen," a working-class romantic comedy called "She's the One," which, once again, Burns wrote, directed and starred in. Next, she starred opposite Harvey Keitel and Craig Sheffer in "Head Above Water," a thriller about a respectable judge, his wife, her ex-lover, their neighbor and a dead body that won't go away.

In 1996, Diaz was named ShoWest's Female Star of Tomorrow by the National Association of Theatre Owners (a title previously held by such actresses as Winona Ryder, Nicole Kidman and Julia Ormond). Diaz's first studio film since "The Mask," "My Best Friend's Wedding," became one of the biggest hits of the summer of 1997 and one of the 10 top-grossing films of the year.

Starring opposite Julia Roberts, Dermot Mulroney and Rupert Everett as a sweet debutante on the eve of her nuptials, "My Best Friend's Wedding" gave Diaz an opportunity to show yet another side of her many talents, capturing the hearts of critics and moviegoers in the process. Her performance earned her the Blockbuster Entertainment Award for Favorite Supporting Actress in a Comedy, voted on by more than 11 million customers of Blockbuster Video internationally. This award solidifies her ability to connect with an international audience-a talent she will definitely bring as a host.

In "A Life Less Ordinary" -- from yet another talented young filmmaker, director Danny Boyle of "Trainspotting" fame -- Diaz starred opposite gifted Scottish actor Ewan McGregor, playing a spoiled, unhappy rich girl who falls in love with the janitor who accidentally kidnaps her.

For her performance in the title role in the romantic comedy "There's Something About Mary," Diaz was honored with the New York Film Critics Circle Award as Best Actress, in addition to a Golden Globe nomination, the American Comedy Award, the Blockbuster Entertainment Award for Favorite Movie Actress, The Netherlands' Best Actress Rembrandt Award and the MTV Movie Award for Best Female Performance. Directed by Peter and Bobby Farrelly, the 20th Century Fox feature was released to worldwide box-office success in July 1998 and has set records in its subsequent video release.

Following the dark comedy, "Very Bad Things," written and directed by actor-filmmaker Peter Berg and starring Christian Slater, Diaz starred in the critically-acclaimed "Being John Malkovich," opposite John Cusack, Catherine Keener and John Malkovich. Directed by Academy Award-nominee Spike Jonze, the film captured the imaginations of filmgoers around the world and Diaz's performance was nominated for a Golden Globe, the Screen Actors Guild Award and the British Academy of Film (BAFTA) Award, while the film amassed numerous awards, nominations and other honors for the film, cast and filmmakers. Critics raved about the actors in "Being John Malkovich," including Diaz, whose portrayal of Lotte was described by one critic as "such a subtle and seamless performance that, even if you're a fan, you may go for most of the movie without recognizing her."

Diaz co-starred in Oliver Stone's "Any Given Sunday" with an all-star cast including Al Pacino, Jamie Foxx, Dennis Quaid, LL Cool J, James Woods and Ann-Margaret. Her portrayal of tough young owner of a professional football team earned her a Blockbuster Entertainment Award for Favorite Actress in a Drama.

Her career continued to soar with Sony Pictures' feature film version of the 70's television series, "Charlie's Angels," opposite Drew Barrymore, Lucy Liu and Bill Murray, which broke the domestic box office record for a non-holiday weekend and has grossed over $300 million worldwide. The Angels won a Blockbuster Entertainment Award and were selected Favorite Action Team and Diaz was singled out for Best Dance Sequence at the 2001 MTV Movie Awards, voted on by the viewers of MTV.

Diaz appeared in "The Invisible Circus," based on an acclaimed novel by Jennifer Egan and co-starring Jordana Brewster and Christopher Eccleston and was seen on Showtime in Rodrigo Garcia's "Things You Can Tell Just By Looking At Her" with Glenn Close, Calista Flockhart, Amy Brenneman and Holly Hunter.

She provided the voice of the feisty Princess Fiona in DreamWorks' worldwide-animated hit "Shrek" with Mike Myers, Eddie Murphy and John Lithgow. "Shrek" was one of the most successful films of any genre in 2001, setting box office records and breaking more records with its release on video and DVD and appearing on dozens of critics lists of the best movies of 2001.

She co-starred in Cameron Crowe's "Vanilla Sky," with Tom Cruise, Penelope Cruz, Jason Lee and Kurt Russell. Her performance as Julie Gianni in the film was nominated for a Golden Globe Award, an AFI Award and a SAG Award and Cameron was chosen Best Supporting Actress by the Boston Society of Film Critics. In Spring 2002, she starred in the comedy, "The Sweetest Thing," which co-starred Christina Applegate and Selma Blair. She was nominated for the Golden Globe for her performance in Martin Scorsese's Academy Award-nominated "Gangs of New York," which was shot on location in Rome opposite Leonardo DiCaprio, Liam Neeson and Daniel Day-Lewis. She was seen most recently in "Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle," and reprises the role of Princess Fiona in "Shrek 2" opening May 21. She is currently filming "In Her Shoes" with director Curtis Hanson.
