Last Friday kicked off the 9th annual Streamy Awards. Online video creators and everyone behind those projects were honored during the night, and many won big.
Year 9 for the Streamy Awards was a unique one. It is the first year that the award show went host-less. Nevertheless, There was still a packed list of presenters. That list includes names like Kalen Allen, Ambers Closet, Marques Brownlee, Nikita Dragun, Jack Douglass, Joey Graceffa, Gabbie Hanna, Zane Hijazi and Heath Hussar, and Collins Key. The award show was streamed live globally and exclusively on YouTube.
Throughout the night, there were still many memorable moments, like Emma Chamberlain coaching this year’s Breakout Creator nominees on how to give a great acceptance speech. There were also a few musical performances and other creator-led segments. Multi-platinum selling artist Normani performed her hit “Motivation” and pop star Kim Petras performed her single “Icy.”
Now, it’s time to get to the awards. David Dobrik led the night with three wins (First Person, Collaboration for SURPRISING PEOPLE WITH KYLIE JENNER!!, and Ensemble Cast for Vlog Squad).
