The event will stream exclusively on YouTube on Sunday, December 13, 2020 at YouTube.com/Streamys.
This year’s Streamys will feature new honors in which past winners will craft unique and personal tributes to creators whose work has resonated with them personally. Other creators will be recognized for making impactful contributions throughout 2020 by pushing limits, inspiring connection in a year of isolation and influencing creative works and diverse voices across race, gender and culture.
2020 will also mark the Streamys 10th anniversary. This year’s nominations highlights include:
David Dobrik, Emma Chamberlain and James Charles lead with five nominations each.
Notable nominees who embraced fresh ways to educate, entertain and engage audiences during this year’s stay-at-home order include D-Nice’s “Club Quarantine,” John Krasinski’s “Some Good News,” the epic “Verzuz” battles, Miley Cyrus’ live series “Bright Minded,” Kevin James’ comedy channel, and “YouTube Dear Class of 2020.”
Digital creators Addison Rae, Charli D’Amelio, Dream, Spencer X and ZHC received nominations in the Breakout Creator category, which has become a strong indicator of success in the online creator world. Past winners include creator superstars Emma Chamberlain, David Dobrik, Liza Koshy and MrBeast.
Global celebrities earned nominations across categories including supermodel Naomi Campbell, Will Smith, comedians Jack Black and Kevin James, soccer superstar Cristiano Ronaldo, and music artists Cardi B, Jason Derulo, Justin Bieber, Travis Scott and Post Malone.
