Streamy Awards

April 1, 2009

We’ve mentioned The Guild starring Felicia Day a few times in the past on the show, and now in the US they’ve held the 1st Annnual Streamy Awards, that is an awards show dedicated to online media programmes. Doctor Horrible was nominated and won a bunch of awards, as did The Guild and Felicia Day herself won Best Actress in a Comedy. So huge congrats to her and everyone involved for all of their hard work and effort.

The internet is bringing about a lot of change, some bad, but mostly good. Like podcasting! And blogging and all the other channels that allow you to receive news and opinions without a filter. And now, it’s brought us original programmes and ideas direct to our doorstep from creative minds that don’t have the backing of a studio. This was only the first year of the awards and the ceremony was dominated by a couple of well known shows, and they totally deserve it. I just hope next year that there will be dozens of shows and hundreds of nominations as the traditional boundaries fall away and we see some fantastic new stuff.
