Streamy Awards 2013: Winners List
The third annual Streamy Awards, hosted by comedian Chris Hardwick, were held Sunday at the Hollywood Palladium.
The event, a co-production between Tubefilter and Dick Clark Productions, honors the best in online video programming. Vanilla Ice, Shontelle, Soulja Boy and Streamy winners Epic Rap Battles of History were among the night's performers.
Hardwick got big laughs when he kicked off the show reminiscing about last year's dry-humping fiasco, while Jamie Kennedy joked on stage that his career must be going down hill since he was a chosen presenter.
Kennedy announced Ken Marino as the best comedic male performance winner for his role in Burning Love, which also took home the prize for best ensemble cast and guest appearance.
Best male performance in a drama went to Xander Berkeley for his role in the sci-fi thriller The Booth at the End. Best female performance in a drama went to Missy Peregrym for her role in Cybergeddon, while Hannah Hart won best female in a comedy for My Drunken Kitchen.
Epic Rap Battles of History founders Peter Shukoff and Lloyd Ahlquist cleaned house, scoring wins for best original song, music series and use of fashion and design. Shukoff also won best online musician.
Best direction went to Stewart Hendler for H+ The Digital Series, distributed by Warner Brothers Digital. Best writing in a drama went to Tony Valenzuela for Black Box TV, while best writing in a comedy went to Bernie Su for The Lizzie Bennet Diaries.
The final award of the night was the audience choice for best series of the year, which went to SourceFed, a news website and YouTube channel created by Philip DeFranco.
