In total, 35 awards were handed out at the official nominee reception held three days before the Streamy Awards' live broadcast.

Several online video stars became early winners Monday night at the Streamy Awards official nominee reception. 

The Streamys handed out 35 awards at the Sept. 14 event, which took place at YouTube Space LA three days ahead of the main event. Online video stars Chelsea Briggs and GloZell Green hosted the festivities, which saw awards go to most-subscribed YouTuber PewDiePie and comedian Mamrie Hart. Traditional media stars took home a few awards, too. The Tonight Show won for its short series Backstage and James Van Der Beek scored for his turn as a dark Power Ranger in a spoof of the beloved children's series. 

Another nine categories and two audience choice awards will be announced live from the Hollywood Palladium on Sept. 17. The event, hosted by Grace Helbig and Tyler Oakley, will be broadcast at 10 p.m. ET/PT and streamed live online.
