The nominees for the 4th Annual Streamy Awards have been announced, and the contenders make up a diverse cross-section of the online video industry. “How diverse of a cross-section?” you ask. Well, we decided to take a look. Most of the 244 nominees are affiliated with one of 54 established digital entities or YouTube multi-channel networks. The following chart ranks all the represented networks by the total number of Streamys nominations their shows and stars received:

CDS is at the top of the chart, and it got there thanks to Freddie Wong. Between the talented multi-hyphenate’s Rocket Jump channel and his Video Game High School web series, Wong’s creations scored 11 noms—the most for any creator. And he owes much of that prolific presence on the Streamys nominations list to his excellence in technical categories, in which VGHS and Rocket Jump combined to grab six nominations.

Of Fullscreen‘s 23 total nominations, four of them fall in the two Audience Choice categories. That’s the most of any MCN and reveals something about at least a couple of Fullscreen’s partners’ abilities to activate their audiences. In terms of creators, The Fine Bros are the Fullscreen partner with the most noms (three for Kids React), while no other Fullscreen creator has more than two.

Maker Studios‘ Streamys presence is led by Epic Rap Battles of History, which nabbed five nominations. As with Fullscreen, all other Maker Studios-partnered creator scored two or fewer noms.

Further down the list, RoosterTeeth showed that there is more to the Austin, Texas-based studio than its signature series, Red Vs. Blue. The Halo-inspired machinima comedy scored only two of RoosterTeeth’s nine nominations. On the flipside, Machinima‘s ten nominations were very top-heavy. Seven of them came from Kevin Tancharoen’s action-packed web series, Mortal Kombat: Legacy II.

At the bottom of the list lie 36 nominees who are independent—not affiliated with any network. The most interesting part of that group is the presence of independent creators in major award categories. In a YouTube landscape where most top channels are partnered with networks, creators like Bethany Mota, Jenna Marbles, Jesse Wellens, Ryan Higa, and Stuart Edge have managed to score noms without MCNs.

To learn which of these nominees will actually take home the hardware, tune into the Streamys LIVE at 7:30 pm PT/10:30 pm ET on September 7th, 2014 at
