The 2015 Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Awards air Saturday, March 28 and Nick Jonas will act as host for this year's slime-filled tween-centric festivities. The Blimp-giving ceremony has been around since 1987, and looking back at past hosts and winners proves to be pretty much the perfect refresher of what was supposed to be "cool" for the young folk over the past 3 decades. Let's step into our Nickelodeon time capsule and flip through the history of Kids' Choice Awards hosts, plus, remember some pop-culture sensations of yesteryear along the way...

One of the most critically lauded directors of the past 25 years, it's hard to believe Quentin Tarantino is only turning 52 years old today (March 27).

A master of his craft, Tarantino had already won the Palme d'Or -- the top prize at Cannes -- for "Pulp Fiction" (1994) by his early 30s, and that proceeded another gem, "Reservoir Dogs," just two years earlier. Guess he was right when he said, "If you just love movies enough, you can make a good one."

From "Reservoir Dogs" to "Django Unchained," here is a ranking of every Quentin Tarantino movie to date.

Terminator GenisysIt's easy to be a tough guy when you're up against an eager drumming student, J.K. Simmons, but when a Terminator gets thrown your way, well, it's a different story altogether! Yup, Mr. "Whiplash" himself is looking awfully nervous in this trailer for "Terminator: Genisys," and honestly, who could blame him? It's still not particularly clear what's happening, but here are a few things we know for sure.

First of all, Emilia Clarke doesn't need dragons to be a fierce mama. The trailer is jam-packed with winks and nods to previous movies in the series, such as when Sarah Connor (Clarke) announces, "Come with me if you want to live!" Arnold Schwarzenegger quotes himself ("I'll be back!") and even comes face to face with his younger, body-building self. There are also plenty of visual callbacks that eagle-eyed "Terminator" experts will make note of. As for the rest? Shooty things and melting robots and Jason Clarke and whatnot. Cool? Cool.



"Terminator: Genisys" opens July 1.

As it turns out, there are bigger things to fear than fear itself. For instance, fans are understandably skittish about the fifth season finale of "The Walking Dead" that's shambling towards our TVs on Sunday night. But there's more! Executive producer Robert Kirkman revealed that "Fear the Walking Dead" will be the official title of the spin-off, and frankly, that's enough to chill anyone's marrow.

According to Variety, the show will take place in Los Angeles, and it will have entirely new characters and narratives. Plus, fans around the world will be able to see the first episode of the show within 24 hours of its US premiere.

Kim Dickens, Cliff Curtis, Alycia Debnam Carey, and Frank Dillane will star in the spin-off. Dave Erickson ("Sons of Anarchy") will be the showrunner and an executive producer on "Fear the Walking Dead." He also co-wrote the pilot with Kirkman.

AMC is so bullish on the show that the network has ordered two seasons already, with the first to premiere this summer. There aren't many more details about what the show will entail, but we've got some suggestions.

The Walking DeadThings looked grim in Alexandria when we last left "The Walking Dead," as Rick put on a maniacal show while he beat Pete senseless, then waved a gun around while ranting about the community's need to change its ways. That display has certainly cast the constable in a new light for the Alexandrians, and will no doubt affect how the rest of his group sees him, too.

But how much will that divide play into the ensemble's dynamic going forward? And what does it mean for Rick personally? We have a lot of questions about the show as it heads into its 90-minute season finale on Sunday, and we've laid them out below. Here's (some of) what we hope to see addressed as the show ends its fifth season.

1. How will Rick's group react to his outburst?

Screaming about controlling your residents while soaked in blood is one way to lose trust, and I'm certain that members of Rick's crew will be among those who turn against him after this display. But who? Father Gabriel has already declared his lack of faith in the group, so he doesn't really count. Michonne is desperate to fit in at Alexandria at any cost, though she struggled with that during the last episode. But since she's the one who cold-cocked Rick, we're guessing she'll still try to stay on the straight and narrow and play nice with Deanna and co. -- for now. Glenn, already dispirited from the recent deadly supply run, may join Rick's side in solidarity with his frustrations, but that could cause some strain on his relationship with Maggie, who seems eager to tow the line in Alexandria. And we wouldn't be surprised if Deanna pulled rank and exiled the sheriff's deputy -- perhaps setting up a Rick redemption story for season six.

2. Could Carol kill Pete?

Carol has played the part of shrinking violet to perfection since she arrived in Alexandria, keeping her head down, wearing cardigans, and baking cookies and casseroles alongside the rest of the Junior League wannabes. But as her cloak and dagger confrontation with Sam proved, she's ready and willing to whip out her badass side at a moment's notice. And despite the threats she's lobbed against the boy, she can't deny her maternal instincts for long, especially when she realizes the abuse Jessie is suffering (and possibly Sam, too). Carol sees shades of her former life in Jessie's situation, and was the one to suggest that Rick kill Pete, directly leading to last week's climactic streetfight. The Alexandrians have already made it clear that they don't think Pete should die; if Rick is exiled, Carol may be the one who does the deed instead.

3. What's up with those W's?

They've been teased ever since the group arrived in Alexandria, and appearances of zombies with W's carved into their foreheads have only grown more frequent as the season has progressed. They seem to be the mark of an evil group, who chop up bodies and tie live, naked women to trees to serve as zombie chow. But why? Who are these people, and what does their imminent arrival signal for our survivors (other than sadistic doom)? I posited the theory that they could be comprised of former Alexandrians whom Deanna has exiled. Could they be staking out the community (and sending out the W-carved walkers as a warning signal) in hopes for revenge? There's been a lot of talk about the outside world posing a threat to those inside Alexandria, and its residents being woefully ill-equipped to deal with any such problems. That could make for a major showdown (and bloodbath) come Sunday.

4. Will more cannibals appear?

Ever since we encountered the folks at Terminus, I've been wary of the lingering threat of cannibalism lurking around every corner. And really, can you blame me? Gareth and his gang meant serious business (that image of Bob watching his own leg roast on an open fire will stay with me for a long time), and there have been many hints sprinkled throughout the back half of this season that there are more human flesh-loving lunatics waiting in the wings. We saw that pile of body parts outside Noah's former development in Richmond; we heard that radio broadcast during Tyreese's fever dream warning of roving bands of wild men; and now, another telltale heap of arms and legs left behind by the W gang has been discovered. (And don't get me started on the Alexandrians' intense interest in baby Judith; I stand strong in my belief that someone is going to try to eat that child before the season ends.) Let's just say it wouldn't be a huge surprise to me should cannibalism bookend the season.

5. Who will make it out alive?

The "Walking Dead" creative team loves to tease fans with cryptic messages, and executive producer Gale Anne Hurd is no different. In a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, Hurd said that audiences can expect "some sad losses no one ... will be able to predict" during the finale, which has us wondering just who is on the chomping chopping block. Based on her scattered mental state as of late, I'm guessing Sasha may be next in line to leave. Tara's life currently hangs in the balance, though she hasn't had much to do all season -- an off-screen death would seem kind of mean, even for her. Father Gabriel has annoyed me from day one, and has proven himself an easy target for zombies in the past; I wouldn't be surprised if he was a goner. A real shocker would be if Sam and/or Jessie were killed -- perhaps at the hands of a deranged Pete? That would prompt someone to then kill Pete, most likely. And obviously, I'd love to see Nick get his comeuppance with a big ol' bullet to the skull (or a walker bite; I'm not picky). It's easy to let the bodies pile up while we're speculating, but it's truly anyone's guess who lives and who dies at this point.

6. WHERE THE #!*&@ IS MORGAN?

Earlier this season, we got our first glimpse at fan favorite character Morgan since way back in season three (and only our third sighting of him throughout "The Walking Dead"'s entire run). He seemed hot on the trail of our survivors, and once he found the map with Rick's name inscribed on it, it seemed like only a matter of time until he was reunited with the sheriff's deputy. But it's been ages since we last saw him -- there's been no mention of him in the back half of this season at all -- and I think we're due for another check-in. Maybe he and Rick can run off and start their own society together? Make it happen, "Walking Dead" writers!

7. Can season five end as explosively as it began?

Way back in October, season five started with a literal bang with Carol's quick-thinking plan to destroy Terminus, and continued on a great run of episodes for several weeks. And then things went off the rails. Beth's Grady Memorial storyline -- and subsequent "shocking" death in the midseason finale -- fell flat for me, and I absolutely hated the overly-self-indulgent, heavy-handed symbolism of the midseason premiere, which saw the death of yet another character (RIP Tyreese; Sasha isn't the only one who misses you). I was so excited when the season began, and that excitement has been waning for a long time; the last few episodes in Alexandria have piqued my interest again, though, and I'm hopeful that this season can still close out as strongly as it opened. (*coughMOREMORGANcough*) Everyone, keep your fingers crossed.

"The Walking Dead" airs its season five finale on Sunday, March 28 at 9 p.m. on AMC.
