Streamy Awards honor Pitbull and more in live-streaming show

Comedians Grace Helbig and Hannah Hart to host the Streamy Awards from the Beverly Hilton

The winners of the 4th Streamy Awards, which celebrate the best in online video, will be announced live from the Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills at 7:30 p.m. Pacific time on Sunday, and viewers can catch the show -- streaming, of course -- here.

This year's Streamy Awards will be hosted by comedians Grace Helbig and Hannah Hart, and will have musical performances by Pentatonix, Postmodern Jukebox and Starship. Presenters include Ashley Clements, Mamrie Hart, Joey Graceffa, Ian Ziering, Tara Reid and Lance Bass. The Streamys will also present a tribute to Joan Rivers by online stars, many of whom are YouTube celebrities who appeared on Rivers' online series "In Bed with Joan."

The inaugural Streamys Icon Award will be awarded to Pitbull, Michelle Phan, Tyler Oakley and Shay Carl for "their achievement in online video and entertainment." Additionally, at least 14 categories will be announced on the program -- including First-Person Series, Comedy Series, Viner of the Year and Audience Choice Awards. A complete winners list will be posted later.
