Streamy Awards has released the list of nominees for the award Streamer of the Year 2022arousing many perplexities e controversy, not only external, but also coming from the appointees themselves. The award ceremony will be streamed on YouTube on December 1, 2022 and promises to be crackling, given the premises.
The selected names are actually all plausible:
- Kai Cenat
However, someone immediately pointed out the lack of very big names, such as those of Amouranth, the top female streamer of Twitch and the internet in general, or Dr. Disrespect. Hard to believe that they have been excluded for their objectionable content, as on the list is a character like xQc who promotes gambling on a regular basis.
Hasan, one of the nominees, immediately spoke of a crowd list. Ludwig, also among the nominees, complained of an even more glaring shortcoming: the names chosen are all North American. According to him, there is no recognition of international talents, who are making a decisive contribution to the growth and maintenance of the community.
There is actually a category to reward international talent, but it seems to include personalities coming mainly from YouTube, which in some cases are not even real streamers. For example, Khaby Lame was selected for Italy, but he is much more famous as a tiktoker than as a streamer.
In short, are you satisfied with the nominations? Or did you live very well without knowing them? If you had to decide, who would you award as streamer of the year?
