The 2018 Streamy Awards, which honor the best in online video, took place on Monday. The Try Guys hosted the ceremony.

Vlogger David Dobrik lead the nominations this year with six. He took home the first award of the night in the first person category. David's Vlog also won the award for ensemble cast. 

While Shane Dawson did not attend the ceremony, he won three awards during the night, including the creator of the year award, which was voted on by fans. The Try Guys won the only other fan-voted award during the ceremony, which was in the show of the year category.

Meanwhile, Todd the Hero Dog was given the Milk-Bone Dog of the Year honor. The award was presented by Olympian skier Gus Kenworthy and his dog Mikey.

Liza on Demand also won big during the night. The show received the comedy series honor, and star Liza Koshy took home the acting in a comedy award.

The 2018 Streamy Awards returned to YouTube after airing on Twitter last year. YouTube streamed the show live around the world.
