You Tube announced they're starting an awards show for the best videos uploaded to the site. Your friends at HotHardware wish you luck with your uploaded videos, but predict the folks walking down the red carpet to get a statue will be somewhat less glamorous than those chosen for motion pictures.
"We wanted to call out some of the most popular videos and let the users choose which ones deserve some additional recognition," said Jamie Byrne, head of product marketing at YouTube.
The vast and varied world of online video has gradually formed styles all its own, which figured into the formation of the categories.
"We looked at the genres of content that were the most popular last year," Byrne said. "We've seen and continue to see exciting new developments in the online video space where genres are being created."
