The Streamy Awards have just announced the nominees for this year’s Audience Choice award categories.
Before we get into the details, here’s a quick primer for anyone that didn’t know: Both the nominees and winners at the Streamy Awards are selected by a ‘Blue Ribbon Panel’ comprised of online video creators, executives, and experts. In the past, the panel has included people like Machinima CEO and Chairman Allen DeBevoise, Maker Studios founder Lisa Donovan, former Defranco Creative producer James Haffner, and Big Frame‘s Sarah Penna.
However, the annual awards show, which is routinely called ‘the Oscars of YouTube,’ gives the panel a break for the ‘Entertainer of the Year’ and ‘Show of the Year’ awards to let fans and followers choose the winners. And from the caliber of nominees this year, it’s going to be a hard choice.
Vine stars Jack & Jack, Cameron Dallas, and King Bach are nominated for Entertainer of the Year alongside youtubers Connor Franta, Jenna Marbles, Kandee Johnson, Miranda Sings, and Lilly Singh (@IISuperwomanII). Both of this year’s Streamy Awards hosts, Grace Helbig and Tyler Oakley, are also nominated.
The Show of the Year nominees also include Rhett & Link’s Good Mythical Morning, The Philip DeFranco Show, Teens React, and Video Game High School. Check out the full list of nominees below.
Prospective voters cast their votes for their favorite web stars on Twitter, by tweeting the nominee’s designated hashtag (listed below) along with the hashtags #vote and #streamys. You can also go to http://www.streamys.org/vote/ to cast your vote via the Streamy’s website.
The winners will be presented with their awards on Thursday, September 17 at 10pm ET at the Streamy Awards ceremony, which will be broadcast live on VH1.
