The 2023 Streamy Awards honored the best in content creation on social media and Dylan Mulvaney took the trophy for Breakout Creator.
“I’m really shocked because I thought the only award I’d ever win was maybe a Tony Award but now I’m a musical theater gal with a Streamy,” the social media star said while accepting her award at the Fairmont Century Plaza Hotel in Los Angeles.
Mulvaney went viral after receiving backlash from conservative media over promoting Bud Light.
“532 days ago, I made a coming-out video that turned into my ‘Days of Girlhood’ series, and my life has been changed for the better,” she continued. “But on the flip side, there’s also been an extreme amount of transphobia and hate, and I know that my community is feeling it.”
Mulvaney ended her speech with a nod to the controversy saying, “I’m gonna go have a beer and I love ya.”
MrBeast took the Creator of the Year award while Michelle Khare won Show of the Year for Challenge Accepted. Other notable winners included Dream, Nick DiGiovanni and Leo González.
