The Esports Awards is an annual celebration of what makes esports special, and this year they’re bigger than ever.

The Esports Awards are just a few days away (December 13), and it's time to get hype because this year’s are going to be bigger and better than ever. In the Esports Awards Go Home Show stream, Fdot joined Rachel Seltzer and CEO Mike Ashford talked about the effort and work that’s gone into the awards.
Most interestingly, the group talked about the incredible skits and production that had already been created for the Esports Awards. With its Las Vegas venue, the glitz and glamor theme is obvious. According to Esports Awards CEO, Mike Ashford, “It’s the biggest budget we’ve ever had.”
And with that budget comes biggest spectacle, bigger shows, and a more exciting award show overall. “We’re celebrating the culture of esports as a whole” explained Fdot. We even got a preview of the skits, featuring former G4 presenter Alex "Goldenboy" Mendez.
