The Streamy Awards tapped comedy quartet The Try Guys to host this year’s event and announced presenters.
The 8th annual Streamy Awards will be a star-studded event from the presenters down to this year’s hosts, The Try Guys. The Try Guys impressed Streamy’s creator and EP Drew Baldwin so much with their presentation skills last year that he decided to offer them an even bigger role.
“Ever since The Try Guys showed us how they prepared to present the Streamy Award for ‘Beauty’, we knew they were game for anything. And we’re proud they can add ‘hosting the Streamys’ as another challenge in their repertoire of tries. I cannot wait to see what scintillating plans their hive-mind will devise to celebrate the achievements of the creator community.”
The group comprised of Ned Fulmer, Eugene Lee Yang, Keith Habersberger, and Zach Kornfeld quickly gained notoriety on Buzzfeed before leaving to form their own YouTube channel. On top of their hosting duties, they are also nominated for two awards. They’re up for ‘Audience Choice: Show Of The Year’ and ‘Ensemble Cast.’
CONSIDER THIS A WARNING: THIS #STREAMYS HOST ANNOUNCEMENT IS WAY 2 HOT 2 HANDLE. 🚨
