And thus after an exciting evening of Red Carpets, Awards, a little too much IKEA plugging and streakers, the results are in.

The patient is dead.

The general opinion? In the twitterverse things seem to go to the negative. There is even a #streamyfail hashtag haunting the twitter feeds, and the comments are not good. Megan O’Neill over at Social Times summed it up very good with the title of her blog post “How To Make Internet Video Look Bad: #streamyfail 2010” and then went on to say:

I thought that the Streamys were supposed to be “the most prestigious awards ceremony devoted to honoring the excellence in original web television programming and those who create it.”  At least, that’s what it says on their website.  But this awards show seemed to do just the opposite.  It was chock full of off the cuff remarks about how nobody watches web series or has ever heard of the Streamys, how nobody knows who any of the people in the audience are and that there is no money in web television.

(read the rest here)

Well, that puts the Streamys in a bad light. We’ll see how the fallout of this show will reflect in the future, but I’ll be honest: I wouldn’t be surprised if this is isn’t the beginning of the end for the web series world and the Streamys.

Oh, listen to me, ain’t I being cynical…

At least most of the winners truly deserve an award, although I’m not sure about Weird Al — as awesome as he may be. A tiny cameo and he gets an award? He himself was certainly very surprised. And let’s not even get us started on the (sneaky) The Bannen Way cleaning up. That would be just opening wounds…

Oh well.
