Streamy Awards Have Strong Debut

March 31, 2009 7:00 AM

The first annual Streamy Awards drew about 1,200 attendees to its red-carpet awards show in Los Angeles this weekend. I’d say that’s a pretty impressive turnout for a Web awards show.

The Streamy Awards honor the best in Web programming, and “Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog” and “The Guild” won a lot of Streamy gold.

What I like about the Streamys is that they awards are voted on by members of the recently formed International Academy of Web Television, and I think that gives some credibility to the awards. They’re not just a popularity contest or an exercise in how many votes you can drive via Twitter. Here’s a video that the Fine Bros. made about how to win a Streamy Award.
