Staying active on social media is like a full-time job. Between posting consistently and making sure it’s always true to your personal brand, becoming a social influencer requires a lot of hard work, and that’s why there’s an awards show to celebrate those who do it so well.
The 8th annual Shorty Awards celebrates the best content on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, YouTube, Instagram, Vine, and now Periscope. Stars like Adele, Chrissy Teigen, Emma Watson, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Ryan Reynolds, and Kerry Washington are nominated, while shows like Empire, Game of Thrones, and The Late Late Show with James Corden made the cut for their noteworthy social content, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Head over to shortyawards.com to see the full list of finalists.
The nominees were aptly determined by social media votes as well as rankings from the Real Time Academy. The awards show will be held on April 11 in N.Y.C. (get your tickets here) and will be livestreamed via its site. Tune in in just a few short weeks to see who takes home the gold.
