Earlier today, Crunchyroll announced that they will partner with Twitch for this year’s Anime Awards show.
Twitch will host a live stream of the event on their platform as the exclusive digital provider. Audience events are planned, including live votes to predict the winners of each category.
Twitch and Crunchyroll previously joined forces in July 2017 to present an anime marathon, which streamed more than fifteen full seasons of anime. This marks the first time that the two organizations have come together for a live event.
The Crunchyroll Anime Awards show will be held at Hollywood’s Montalban Theatre on the evening of February 24. A live stage performance is planned, and VIP guests will present each award.
This year’s Crunchyroll Anime Awards will feature seventeen categories, including “Anime of the Year,” “Best Slice of Life,” and “Best CGI.” Nominees were chosen by a panel of judges from various publications, which include Anime News Network’s Zac Bertschy, IGN’s Miranda Sanchez, and Sumikai’s Michael Ziegler. Much like last year’s awards, honors will be given for fan votes, as well as titles selected by a panel of judges.
The Anime Awards website is currently in its second round of open voting. This week’s categories include “Best Drama”, “Best Action”, “Best Comedy”, “Best Slice-of-Life”, and “Best Continuing Series”.
