Here are the TV personalities who won big at The Shorty Awards, or as I like to call it, the awards show of the future.

Empire”’s Taraji Henson won Best Actress of the Year.

“Late Night” host Jimmy Fallon won best comedian. He celebrated with Snapchat filters.

Shorty awards 4

Speaking of late night, “The Late, Late Show with James Corden” won Best TV Show. (I guess most millennials only watch actual TV after midnight.)

Optical illusionist Zach King won Best Vine artist. He did not accept the award person, probably because he’s traveling around the world on CBS’s “Amazing Race” Season 28.

King Bach, a recent guest on Khloe Kardashian’s “Kocktails with Khloe,” won Best Viner of the Year. He gave the most inspiring acceptance speech, like seriously go watch it.


Lifetime’s “Project Runway” champion Christian Siriano was the winner of Best Fashion.

Yahoo! News multimedia reporter Katie Couric was awarded the Shorty for Best Journalist. “Today Show” colleague Al Rocker introduced her. She thanked her fans via video and to her haters she said “I’ll block your ass.”

Last but not least, the sensation that took news shows around the country by storm Pizza Rat won Best GIF. The GIF creator, not the rat, accepted the award. (Darn.)
