Streamy Awards producers Barry Adelman and Assaf Blecher cited Hardwick as the ideal host for the Streamy Awards due to his work with the Nerdist podcasting network, which hosts such shows as You Made it Weird with Pete Holmes and Dining with Doug and Karan.

"Being such an influential force in pop culture and a powerful online presence, he truly resonates with our audience," Adelman and Blecher said in a statement.
