Twitch has unveiled its first-ever first Chat's Choice Award. Don't expect this to be your usual awards show, however, as Twitch is reinventing the way awards are handed out.  

The event will be on September 3, 2020, at 5 p.m. PT on and leading streamers' channels. The gala event will see winners from 14 categories announced based on viewers' votes. Chat's Choice Award will be unique as there can be more than one winner for each category. 

This is how award winners will be chosen

Five games were nominated for each award category. Creators can then co-stream the ceremony come September 3rd and together with the community vote for their top choice for each award. 

And this is where it gets better. Creators can organize their own version of the awards ceremony. Using Twitch's voting plugin tool, fans who will join in the creator's chatroom can select their personal favorite. 

"So, if your community is super into Animal Crossing," Twitch said, "while everyone else seems way more into battle royales, give Animal Crossing an award!"

Joining this year's Chat's Choice Awards are some of the top Twitch creators, with some presenting the awards live while others will host on their channels. Some of the names revealed were AnneMunition, BaerTaffy, BruceGreene, CupAhNoodle, DansGaming, DechartGames, DuendePablo, Emiru, LEGIQN, Northernlion, Pokimane, Swiftor, and Trihex.
