The Streamy Awards 2019 nominations have been announced and popular streamers such as Ninja and Tfue are up for awards. Other creators such as YouTuber turned NBC late night talk show host Lilly Singh and the philanthropic Mr Beast are also up for Streamys.

Fortnite streamer Ninja is up for two Streamy Awards, creator of the year and live streamer. If Ninja takes the awards home, it would just support what has been an incredibly successful year for him. The streamer also completed a move from Twitch to Mixer in a move that is likely to have been very lucrative for him.

However, Ninja will be up against some popular opponents. Other creators nominated for creator of the year are former BuzzFeed producer Safiya Nygaard, lifestyle vlogger and influencer Tana Mongeau, and fashion YouTuber Simply Nailogical. In the live streamer category, Ninja is against DrLupo, who Ninja sometimes plays Fortnite with and Twitch Rivals which is a channel run by Twitch. Fortnite streamer Tfue has also been nominated for the award and though he did take time off from streaming on Twitch, he is incredibly popular.

All of the nominees can be seen on the Streamys site. The awards will be announced on December 13 and the presentation will be streamed around the world.
