I was looking at the nominees and noticed they had to make a lot of changes to the categories to accomodate the fact that web series really aren't being produced anymore. There is a section for Vines. Vines? They have a 10 second limit, what's next Best animated gif on Tumblr. Oh man, they are going to have a best animated gif category next year aren't they?
So if you read through that long list of categories and wondered how they were going to put out all of those awards in a 3 hour show, the answer is they aren't. In fact during the actual Streamy show they are only doing 14 awards, 4 of them "icon' awards. The rest of the awards including the scant acting awards were given out yesterday.
I have a feeling the actual Streamy broadcast is going to be more 'performance' and comedy oriented.
