The Nominees for the 3rd Annual Streamy Awards Are…

The nominees for the 3rd Streamy Awards have been announced, and offerings from YouTube’s slate of Original Channels lead the way. Benny and Rafi Fine‘s MyMusic show scored the most nominations with nine, while Machinima Prime‘s Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn was close behind with eight.

The race at the top will be hotly contested, with a strong class of nominees in the major categories. The five nominees for best drama series are Forward Unto Dawn, WIGSLauren, AwesomenessTV‘s Runaways, Vuguru and Hulu’s The Booth at The End, and the cult hit Anyone But Me. For comedy series, the nominees are MyMusic, Yahoo’s Burning Love, breakout hit The Lizzie Bennet Diaries, indie series PrisonPals, and Smosh.

Beyond the top two, several other series also scored big. Lizzie Bennet Diaries scored six nominations, Burning Love and Maker Studios’ Epic Rap Battles of History each claimed five, H+, Cyberbergeddon, and Husbands each snagged four, and six more series grabbed three, with Phil DeFranco earning five noms between SourceFed and The Phil DeFranco Show.

MyMusic received the most nominations thanks to strong representation in both production and talent categories. Another Fine Bros’ show, Kids React, also earned a spot, giving the brothers ten total nominations.

Only three winners from the 2nd Streamy Awards –The Guild, Anyone But Me, and Autotune/Songify The News – returned as nominees this time around. The Guild was a big winner at both previous Streamys, and is up for two awards this time, while Felicia Day also got a nod in the Best First-Person Series category.

The full list of nominees can be viewed on the Streamys website and below. Thanks again to everyone who submitted. It’s only two months until the Streamys. The 3rd Annual Streamy Awards Presented by Coca-Cola will be streamed live for viewers worldwide on February 17, 2013 from The Hollywood Palladium. Mark your calendars. #ItsOurTurn.
