Rob Gronkowski presented a blimp at the Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Awards back in March, but now it's his turn to see if he's a winner. The Kids' Choice Sports Awards nominees were announced, and Gronk and Tom Brady are among the lucky athletes to be recognized.

Tom was nominated for the Best Cannon award, along with Aaron Rodgers, Bryce Harper, Novak Djokovic, Russell Wilson and Serena Williams. 

Gronk was nominated for both the Biggest Powerhouse and Hands of Gold awards. Last year Gronk was nominated for Hands of Gold, Most Enthusiastic Player and Clutch Player of the Year, but lost to Mike Trout, Gabby Douglas and Steph Curry respectively. 

Malcolm Butler was also nominated for Favorite Newcomer, but a Super Bowl saving interception was not enough to beat out Odell Beckham Jr.  

Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson will host the awards ceremony on July 17 for the second year in a row, and if his commencement address at the University of Wisconsin is any indication, we can expect some good-natured jokes about Super Bowl XLIX. 

Fans can vote for their favorite athletes on and the Nick app beginning on May 23.

This is the year that the Patriots walk away with the coveted orange and mohawked blimps. We can feel it.
