Over the weekend, tons of your favorite stars gathered in Los Angeles in celebration of the 2017 Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Awards. While we love seeing big fan-voted awards shows like this ones, we know that one of the hardest parts of the process is selecting winners for each category, especially when we love all of the nominees! Case and point: two of our most loved actresses Dove Cameron and Zendaya were both up against one another in the same KCA category for Favorite Female TV Star at this year's show. How could we even choose between them?!
As it turned out, Zendaya won her well-deserved orange blimp at the ceremony. Of course, some fans were hoping another one of the category's talented nominees would be the ultimate victor, but the celebs themselves were taking to social media to remind everyone to be good sports about the process.
Dove herself posted a message reminding her fans that while she appreciates the fans who dedicated time to voting for her, their support means more to her than the trophy.
hey, you guys, i love you. awards are lovely, but our relationship is about us 😍 & the love is real. honored to share what we share, always.— Dove Cameron (@DoveCameron) March 12, 2017

When fans noticed that Dove was still excitedly clapping for Z when she picked up her award, she tweeted that she has "nothing but love" for her fellow Disney Channel actress.
Talk about amazing sportsmanship! Dove's actions remind us that even when there is literal competition involved – and in this case, a prestigious award – the players involved don't have to have animosity between them. After all, events like the KCAs are really about celebrating all the amazing things our favorite role models do.
Zendaya responded to Dove's message of support with even more positivity, telling Dove to "keep shining."
That's true girl power right there. It's no wonder we can't decide which of these fiercely inspiring stars we love more – and luckily, we get to love them both.
