Streamys Bestows ‘Premiere’ Awards To Ninja, JoJo Siwa Ahead Of Tomorrow’s Flagship Ceremony

Ahead of the flagship Streamy Awards, broadcasting live tomorrow evening exclusively on YouTube from The Beverly Hilton hotel, a slew of awards were handed out yesterday evening at the Streamy Premiere Awards, a precursor event of sorts.

At last night’s ceremony, hosted by fraternal twin vlogger sensations Niki and Gabi DeMartino at The Broad Stage in Santa Monica, California, twenty-three Streamy Award winners were announced, including TikTok and rapper Lil Nas X, gaming phenom Ninja, and children’s creator JoJo Siwa. (The Streamys are co-produced by Tubefilter and Dick Clark Productions.)

The Streamys Premiere Awards also marked the franchise’s global foray with three first-of-their kind international categories, recognizing outstanding creators in three regions: Asia Pacific, EMEA, and Latin America.
