Proving just how large the digital video landscape is becoming, the Streamy Awards — like the Emmys and Oscars — have split up the handing-out of honors, announcing winners in 30 categories Saturday night. 

YouTube star Grace Helbig, prankster Roman Atwood, and actor Robby Novak — a.k.a. Kid President — were among the winners at the 2016 Official Streamys Nominee Reception at YouTube Space LA, taking home awards for Brand Campaign, Pranks, and Kids and Family, respectively. Todrick Hall and violinist Lindsay Stirling were among those taking home Music awards, while 30 for 30 Shorts won in the Sports category, Tastemade’s Tiny Kitchen in the Food arena. 

The team behind the entertaining Honest Trailers won the craft Writing award, while Jimmy Kimmel Live and various creators won the performance Collaboration award for that show’s popular Mean Tweets segment.

Winners in 14 other categories will be announced Tuesday night at the 6th Annual Streamy Awards, starting at 9 p.m. ET at the Beverly Hilton, with a livestream available via the Streamys YouTube channel. King Bach will host the ceremony, with a stream-studded group of presenters including Philip DeFranco, Gigi Gorgeous, Joey Graceffa, GloZell Green, Helbig, Jenna Marbles, Tyler Oakley, Ian Hecox and more. Dawson’s Creek star James Van Der Beek and New Girl’s Lamorne Morris will make special appearances.
