Although the article linked below includes many of the nominees for the GPI Awards, the video shows the entire recording of the Awards show hosted by Jeff Platt, if you care to know the winners for each category. PokerGo offered the Awards show free of charge.

As I was skipping through the video, I see there is an award for the 'Fans Choice - Best Hand' at about the 23:00:00 mark. Who knew there was such a category? I'm guessing PokerGo or GPI or both run a poll to determine the winner? (I haven't searched any information on this but just found this interesting. :))

No wonder the best "Fan's Choice, Livestream" was "Hustler Casino Live". I am not a Cash Game person, but I look into the High Stakes Cash Game streams when they are mentioned here and they are interesting.
It's good to see all the hands and not only when AA, KK play against each other.
