The show threw itself at the lowest common denominator and started digging. The entire show felt raunchy. I doubt any of the attendees knew just how raunchy the show was going to be. On the red carpet, I saw a lot of open-toed shoes. Had they had known there would be so much filth, they probably would have worn boots.

But the rest of the entertainment industry isn’t going to take you seriously until you start taking yourselves seriously. That means upping your award show beyond crappy high-school play production level.

The 2010 Streamys Award Show Disaster
"I couldn’t believe it. Here was an opportunity for internet content creators and the industry to shine, and we get a foul mouthed pimp delivered to us who actually compared the “Streamys” to a type of orgasm. Unbelievable."
How To Make Internet Video Look Bad: #streamyfail 2010
It was chock full of off the cuff remarks about how nobody watches web series or has ever heard of the Streamys, how nobody knows who any of the people in the audience are and that there is no money in web television.
Streamys Tap Galifianakis & 'Ferns,' 'Bannen Way'
"The 2nd annual Streamy Awards, which took place Sunday night at the Orpheum Theater in downtown Los Angeles, were a wild, rough, disorganized and freewheeling antidote to usual award-show decorum......."
The 2010 Streamys - (Or, How I Learned To Stop Worrying And Just Close The Window)
Alright, alright...this isn't going to be another blog that bashes the 2nd Annual Streamy Awards over and over again...I've recently had my fair share of people throwing non-stop complaints in my direction, so rather than take the usual road of constant hating, I'm going to do my best to try and show how the next (?) Streamy Awards can be saved.
"Next year, and I hope there will be a next year, I hope the Streamys learn from this year and ensure things run smoother. I also want to say good luck to them, the entertainment world can be harsh and have a long memory when it wants to, hopefully this is not a time when it wants to."

Moving On From the Streamy Fail
We’ve got a lot of trust to rebuild, with the sponsors who had their names and brands attached to the event, to the show creators and supporters who abandoned the theater mid-way through the four-hour show in disgust, and the viewing public.
2010 STREAMY AWARDS
This is one of the biggest hurdles in online video is getting brands to trust the content they are advertising against. Now, they can’t even trust a show ABOUT online video!
The Trainwreck Awards
This year, the Streamys addressed those complaints by including seemingly twice as much stale patter and piss-poor comedy, much of it written by a scatologically-obsessed twelve year old.
Season one, episode 17
If I knew nothing about online content and I had tuned into the Streamy’s, this is what I’d have learned: we shouldn’t expect to be taken seriously because even our own awards show thinks we’re hacks; misogyny is funny; flash and spectacle .....
Reactions to the 2010 Streamy Season
Well, now that it’s all said and done, let’s take a look at what I can only call an overall disaster.
A Horrible Turn at the Streamy Awards
"The minions were using this entrance while the beautiful people were given a more appropriate path to the theater. And by minions and commoners i am referring of course to nominees, sponsors, celebs, and other people that got the wrong email. Holy crap. Could we be marginalized any more?"
Porn Jokes vs. Net Neutrality: 2nd Annual Streamy Awards Backlash 'Echo Chamber' and the Future of Web as Entertainment Medium
Most of the first-hand accounts and dismal tweets, however, came from those in the audience or the nominees and winners themselves, because backstage in the press room watching the live broadcast on a poor screen projection, we could barely make out host Paul Scheer's facial expressions let alone hear much of what was said on stage.
and the outsiders say...
