Imagine, if you will, a world where the Oscars and the Golden Globes said screw having separate ceremonies, let’s team up for the ultimate awards show. Well, that’s the world you live in now, at least when it comes to online video. NewTeeVee is teaming up with its friends Tilzy.TV and Tubefilter to honor the best in web series entertainment with the first annual Streamy Awards.
Streamy nominations will soon be open across 25 categories, including Best Series, Directing, Writing and Acting. Any web series of at least three installments, released in 2008, is eligible for consideration.
The awards schedule is as follows:
- Dec. 19, 2008: Nominations open
- Jan. 23, 2009: Nominations closed
- Feb. 15, 2009: Audience Choice Finalists announced
- March 9, 2009: Nominees announced
- March 28, 2009: Winners announced
Fans drive the nomination process, and the most-nominated show in each category will be an automatic nominee. The other nominees will be determined by a panel of industry experts, who will also vote to determine the winners.
We’ll have more details on the process as we proceed, but in the meantime get ready to head over to www.Streamys.org and start submitting your favorites!
