Introducing the winners of last night’s Streamy Awards Nominee Reception
Get better, GloZell!
Streamys week got off to a memorable start, although not in the way organizers intended.
In a stunt-gone-wrong at the Streamy Awards Nominee Reception, where 35 categories honoring the best is digital video were announced, co-host GloZell Green never made it to the stage, and instead left the event at YouTube Space LA in an ambulance.
Green, who’s known for her over-the-top presence, tried to make a grand entrance by sliding down a fire pole. She landed hard, and didn’t stand back up. “It’s broken,” she mouthed to attendees near her, and production stopped to address her injury. We reached out to organizer for an official comment on Green’s status, but she did leave the event in medical care.
While the incident did put a damper on the evening, Green took to the mic while waiting for her ambulance to encourage the festivities to continue, and posed for pictures with fellow YouTubers like Colleen Ballinger.
Streamys co-founder Drew Baldwin stepped in for Green, and the night continued with the event bulging at the seams, having clearly outgrown its home in the YouTube Space lobby. With too many attendees to fit inside, guests spilled out into the courtyard, but the rest of the evening was comparatively smooth sailing.
Epic Rap Battles of History was the big winner of the night, taking home three awards including Collaboration, Costume Design, and Editing. Coming in next were Video Game High School, which won Ensemble Cast and Directing Streamys, and Corridor Digital, which won for Action Sci-Fi series and Visual and Special Effects. Perhaps the most surprising Streamy winner of the evening was James Van Der Beek. Best known for his teen heartthrob status on Dawson’s Creek in the 90s, Van Der Beek won the acting category for his role in Adi Shankar’s Bootleg Universe.
A full list of winners are below. The remainder of the Streamy Awards will be handed out Thursday, Sept. 17, live on VH1 at 10pm ET.
