Further minting his status as the Dick Clark of geekdom, Nerdist emperor and Comic-Con panelist extraordinaire Chris Hardwick will host the third annual Streamy Awards, dedicated to celebrating original online video programming. The event will take place on February 17 — streaming live, naturally. This year’s nominees include Burning Love, Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn, the 30 Rock tie-in The Donaghy Files, and various nominations for online video poster child Felicia Day.
