In her speech, she gave a shout-out to the channel that gave her her big break a decade ago.

The 7 Rings artist said: 'Nickelodeon will always hold such a tremendous space in my heart. Not only because of Victorious and Sam & Cat, and the amazing years I spent working with them... but also just for SpongeBob, you know?'

Kristen Bell got into full Anna costume to accept Favorite Animated Movie on behalf of Frozen 2.

She was accompanied by toy versions of her co-stars, whom she tried to give the microphone, before saying: 'They're normally very talkative.'
