A number of big YouTube personalities enjoyed success in the web category at this year’s Teen Choice Awards.
YouTube star Tyler Oakley won the Choice Web Star award in the male category, with YouTuber Bethany Mota taking home the first prize in the female category. Meanwhile, British vlogger and fashion guru Zoella enjoyed victory by claiming the Web Fashion and Beauty award.
PewDiePie‘s online dominance also continues, as the Swedish video-maker won the vote for the Web Star:Gaming gong, which shouldn’t be too surprising considering he is now close to 30 million subscribers on YouTube.
The fan-voted awards are yet another sign of the increasing popularity of some of YouTube’s biggest names.
The Teen Choice awards have grown in popularity throughout the years, and the event represents a high level of recognition from the fans that many younger performers are targeting.
Many recent reports have claimed that YouTuber’s are establishing themselves as bigger stars with the current internet-savvy teen demographic, overtaking more mainstream celebrities.
