Lilly ‘Superwoman’ Singh and Cameron Dallas repped Team Internet at last night’s People’s Choice Awards — a roughly 40-year-old broadcast in which awards are entirely determined by public voting.
Singh beat out fellow creators Miranda Sings, PewDiePie, Shane Dawson, and Tyler Oakley to be named Favorite YouTube Star, while Dallas took home honors for Favorite Social Media Star, topping fellow nominees Baby Ariel, Jacob Sartorius, Liza Koshy, and Nash Grier. On the traditional media front, Britney Spears was honored for her social media prowess with the Favorite Social Media Celebrity Award.
“This is so awesome because it’s from the people,” Singh said in her acceptance speech. “The people are at the core of what I do and it’s such a huge honor…This is for the digital space [and] for everyone who follows a passion — I am so proud of you. Thank you.”
