The 7th Annual Streamy Awards are almost here, and we can’t wait to see which talented online videos and the creators behind them will be awarded for excellence. With stars like Cameron Dallas, Jake Paul, the Dolan Twins, Lilly Singh, Baby Ariel, and more of our favorites among the 2017 nominees, we thought it would be fun to see if we could predict any award winners of the season before they are officially announced.
This year, we have predicted who we think will take home an award in the following categories: Creator of the Year, Breakout Creator, Best Comedy Series, Feature, First Person Channel, Beauty, Fashion, Lifestyle, Collaboration, Acting in a Comedy, Acting in a Drama, and Breakthrough Artist.
The 7th Annual Streamy Awards will stream LIVE on Twitter from The Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills, CA on Tuesday, September 26, 2017.
