We love the Audience Choice categories because they put the decision in the hands of the fans. Yesterday we wrote about the Show of the Year nominees, and today we would like to explore the nominees in the other Audience Choice category, Entertainer of the Year. (By the way, you can vote for your favorite nominees in both categories here).
It’s hard to imagine the Internet without YouTube. The platform that has given millions a voice keeps us entertained whenever we need, whether at “work,” bored and restless at 3 a.m., when you get tagged in a must-see by your best friend, or your focus shifts from a “How To File Your Tax Return” video to an endangered dolphin species documentary. No matter what your YouTube preference may be, this year’s Entertainer of the Year nominees at the Streamy Awards Presented by Coca-Cola have made us smile, laugh, and cry—from laughing. And when these nominees aren’t working on their next YouTube video, they’re entertaining us on Twitter. Here are ten things we learned from this year’s great nominees via Twitter.
