Grace Helbig and Hannah Hart to Host Streamy Awards
It's a reunion for the "Camp Takota" stars
The 4th annual Streamy Awards show has found its hosts, YouTube stars Grace Helbig and Hannah Hart.
The duo, who starred alongside Mamrie Hart in the digital film Camp Takota, will emcee the online video awards show when it streams live from the Beverly Hilton on Sept. 7 at 7:30 p.m. PT. They follow in the footsteps of Nerdist's Chis Hardwick, who hosted last year's event.
Helbig operates the YouTube channel it'sGrace, which has more than 1.8 million subscribers. She's also currently working on a pilot comedy/talk show for E! Hart, the creator of YouTube show My Drunk Kitchen, recently published a book of the same name.
The pair issued a joint statement promising that the Streamy Awards "will be filled with memorable moments, showstopping performances and plenty of surprises."
Executive producer Assaf Blecher added: "Grace and Hannah are two talents that truly embody the hard work and success of today's digital age. There is no better team to co-host the show, and we couldn't be more excited to watch their comedic talents collide."
The Streamy Awards, which added a number of new categories this year, have also announced the finalists for the Audience Choice Awards (see below). Voting is open on the Streamys website until the award is presented live on stage.
Nominees for the Streamy Awards were announced earlier this month and include YouTube stalwarts such as Bethany Mota and Smosh. Helbig is also nominated in addition to co-hosting the evening's festivities.
The Streamy Awards, presented by Coca-Cola, are produced by Dick Clark Productions. (DCP, like The Hollywood Reporter, is owned by Guggenheim Partners.) Blecher and Tubefilter co-founders Drew Baldwin and Joshua Cohen are executive producers of the show.
