`TITANIC' TOPS AT KIDS' CHOICE AWARDS.

Byline: Associated Press

``Titanic'' was the favorite movie at Nickelodeon's 11th annual Kids' Choice Awards Saturday night and Sean ``Puffy'' Combs and the brother trio Hanson dominated the music categories with two trophies each.

More than 5 million kids picked their favorite entertainers, athletes, songs and shows by voting online last month.

Combs, voted favorite singer and dresser, was ``slimed'' in true Nickelodeon fashion as he accepted his favorite dresser award at the end of the evening - much to the delight of the 8,500 cheering kids and their families who attended the awards show, which bills Rosie O'Donnell as a co-producer.

Hanson, the favorite musical group, also won the favorite song award for their hit ``MMMBop.''

This year's Hall of Fame award went to twin sisters Tia and Tamera Mowry. The stars of UPN's ``Sister, Sister'' are past favorite television actress award recipients and have participated in the awards show as presenters.
