Streamy Awards 2016: Here's a guide on how, where, when to watch
The Streamy Awards
It’s time again for the internet’s biggest night: the Streamy Awards!
The annual awards show is, basically, the Oscars for the YouTube crowd.
First held in 2009, the Streamys recognize and honor excellence in online video. That means awards for directing, acting, producing and writing projects available on YouTube, Vine and more.
The 2016 ceremony will take place Tuesday in Beverly Hills, Calif., but fans can watch the festivities from the comfort of their home – or, really, anywhere they have wifi signal.
Instant is the official media partner of the Streamy Awards and will be taking over the red carpet with an exclusive awards pre-show, which will be hosted by actress and social media influencer Teala Dunn and live-streamed on Instant’s YouTube page starting at 7:30 p.m. ET. The mobile-first site – which is dedicated to “the new famous” – is also the presenter of the Breakout Creator Award.
The show itself will be streaming live from the Beverly Hilton in at 9 p.m. ET from the Streamys’ official YouTube page.
The ceremony will be hosted by Vine star King Bach.
This year’s nominees include YouTube personalities Grace Helbig and Tyler Oakley, videographer Casey Neistat, and Vine star Lele Pons, as well as Pentatonix, Lil Dicky, and Todrick Hall.
Viral web series Epic Rap Battles of History and Oscar’s Hotel for Fantastical Creatures each lead with four nods.
