The 2014 Kids' Choice Awards definitely weren't short on fun...but there was something (or should we say someone) missing. Why wasn't Jennette McCurdy, star of Sam & Cat and iCarly, at the KCAs?

Seems her absence got people talking and many wondered if her recent sexy selfie scandal had anything to do with it. With Sam & Cat winning a KCA for Favorite TV Show and show creator Dan Schneider getting a Lifetime Achievement honor, shouldn't Jennette have been there?

Jennette explained all on Twitter, writing:

"A lot of you guys are asking why I didn't attend the KCAs.... I wish I could explain everything as thoroughly as I would like to, but unfortunately a simpler explanation is all I can write. I was put in an uncomfortable, compromising, unfair situation (many of you have guessed what it is) and I had to look out for me. I chose to not go because sticking up for what is right and what is fair is what my mom taught me is ALWAYS the most important thing. I want to thank those of you who have reached out with kind words of support, McCurdians and Arianators alike. No matter who or what you support, I believe in supporting fairness first. If you have done that, thank you."

Earlier this week, she tweeted: "Stand up for what you believe in. Stand up for who you are. Don't let small people make you believe you're small."

We missed you, Jennette, but totally understand.

Update: Did Jennette unfollow Ariana Grande on Twitter? There's plenty of buzz about it, but does it have anything to do with Jennette skipping the KCAs?

Update 2: Jennette took to Twitter to clarify why she wasn't at the KCAs, explaining: "My previous tweet has nothing to do with pics leaked.oh you guys lol It has to do with how nickelodeon treated me. That's all. Thanks for the love. <3"

Wow. That sounds like something crappy went down. Sorry Jennette!
