2010 Streamy Award Winners

Streamy Award winners

The 2010 Streamy Awards were announced in a ceremony held Sunday night at the Orpheum Theater and by all accounts things did not go well. Plagued by technical difficulties, poorly planned comedy, and an often stunned and silent audience, the show created to celebrate web series at times felt more like a wake. Nearly lost in the negative reaction maelstrom were the shows few bright spots brought by its winners.

The Bannen Way was the night’s big winner dominating the drama category taking home three awards for Best Actor, Director, and Series. Rachael Hip-Flores won Best Actress in a Drama series and Bernie Su won for Best Writing. An exuberant Bernie Su gave a rousing speech, which served to momentarily lift the spirits of the audience. Also, Mark Gantt’s heart-felt comments to his Bannen Way partner, Jesse Warren, at the end of the long night to a nearly empty auditorium helped to end the show on a high note.

The Guild and Between Two Ferns split the Comedy awards winning two each with David Wain picking up the award for Best Writing. Best Actor Zack Galifianakis did not attend resulting in a rather confused surrogate accepting the award on his behalf. Also, once again Felicia Day, winner for Best Actress, managed to give a great speech despite being accosted by a naked Bud Bundy only moments before.

Congratulations to all of the 2010 Streamy Award winners. The night’s winners and nominees should be proud of the work they did this past year. The full list of the night’s winners is below. Also, be sure to read through the craft award winners, who were not invited to take part in tonight’s show.
