Streamys 2015 Recap

streamy awards

The 2015 Streamy Awards happened last night! For anyone who doesn’t know what the Streamy Awards is, it’s an awards show to honour the best in online video and the people behind it. Basically it’s a regular award show, but it’s better cause it’s the Internet.

Last night’s event was hosted by Grace Helbig and Tyler Oakley who were amazing and hilarious and looked fantastic!

There were many performances throughout the night. Hailee Steinfeld performed “Love Myself” and from what I’ve read online it seems like this was actually her first live performance of the song. Alessia Cara sang “Here” and she sounded completely amazing.

“Cheerleader” by OMI was of course sang at the Streamys as it was one of the biggest songs of the summer.

Future also performed his song “March Madness” and there wasn’t a ton of enthusiasm for this song. Anyone watching on TV reported that majority of the song was a whole lot of censored bleeps. However, I think it’s safe to say they didn’t miss much since anyone (myself included) watching on the Youtube live stream couldn’t understand what he was saying anyway.

The final two performances of the night were A Great Big World feat. Futuristic as they sang “Hold Each Other” and then to end the night Sir Mix A Lot came out on stage and sang “Baby Got Back”. Because why not, this is the Internet.

There were so many awards to be presented last night and so many others not even shown. Each award was presented by two people with the nominees being presented by a well-known Youtuber.

You can find the full list of nominees/winners as well as channel links down below!

Ciara and Michelle Phan presented the award for “Best Comedy Series” with the nominees being introduced by Honest Trailers.

“Best Beauty Series” was presented by Paula Abdul and Frankie Grande while The Shaytards introduced the nominees.

Pauley Perrette from NCIS and Harley Mortenstein of Epic Meal Time gave away the award for “Prank Series” with Action Movie Kid presenting the nominees.

iJustine and James Van Der Beek, with help from the amazingly talented Kandee Johnson presented the award for “First Person Series”, while Kat Graham and Philip DeFranco gave away the award for “Viner of the Year” with the help of Kid President.

“Kids and Family” was introduced by Jillian Rose Reed, Miss America 2015, and Chester See, while Shay Mitchell, Lindsey Stirling, and The Most Popular Girls presented the award for “Lifestyle Series”
