Felicia Day WoWs at the Inaugural Streamys

After weeks of waiting...

...the Official Nominees for the 2010 2nd Streamy Awards will be announced LIVE tomorrow morning! Remember the excitement of last year? The twittering, live photos and OMGWFTBBQ The Guild and Dr Horrible won everything*!?!?

This time around, who will it be? Tune in to streamys.org or Tubefilter.tv tomorrow at 9:30 AM PST to find out!

Sandeep Parikh and Felicia Day Introduce The Inaugural Streamys

There has been such a massive upsurge of interest and talent streaming into Web Television that the nominations this year will be that much harder. With no Dr Horrible or Battlestar Galactica there are still plenty of big-money productions**. I hope, though, that some of the lesser-funded series are represented because some of these are truly awesome.

The People Choice Award
Tubefilter ran a competition last year for people to write their lists of who might be in The People's Choice Award, offering a ticket to the actual award ceremony as a prize. My list was full of awesome (of course) but I didn't win, coming a "...an honorable second". I hope they run the competition again. They have been doing something similar already asking people to send in their nomination lists for each category via twitter. So if you want to make sure you are up to date with all the news follow @tubefilter and @streamyawards.



*If you look at the list of awards and who won them then Dr Horrible and The Guild didn't win everything on the list. It just seemed that way on the night.
** Yes, I know that technically Dr Horrible was not a big-budget production but it was and remains the exception to the rule in that there are very few people in the 'Verse who can command such talent and equipment for no money down.
