The Streamy Awards will take place Oct. 4 at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.

The Streamy Awards will return to the Beverly Hilton Hotel on Oct. 4 for its sixth annual ceremony honoring achievements in digital storytelling, and this year the event is honoring a number of digital series in addition to its usual who's who of online stars. 

Epic Rap Battles of History and Oscar's Hotel for Fantastical Creatures tied for the most nominations with four each. Other multiple nominees include Fullscreen's Electra Woman & Dyna Girl, Miss 2059 and creators Casey Neistat, Grace Helbig and Roman Atwood. 

The nominations were announced Wednesday morning by YouTube creator GloZell. Nominees for two fan-voted awards, entertainer of the year and show of the year, will be announced at a later date ahead of the October live show. Winners will be determined by a blue-ribbon panel made up of talent, executives and other online video industry experts. 

The Streamy Awards, which are produced by online video blog Tubefilter and Dick Clark Productions, have added three new categories this year to reflect the changing online video landscape. They include categories for virtual reality and 360-degree videos, live-streaming and feature-length movies. 

Last year's fifth annual Streamy Awards were broadcast on VH1. Organizers have yet to announce how people can tune in to this year's show.
