Calling all lovers of YouTube, Vine, Instagram and Internet culture at large! The 2019 E! People’s Choice Awards are here and that means your nominees for The Social Star of 2019 have been announced.
Some of the stars that you’ve spent hours with via your phone screen are up for the award and the competition is fierce! From YouTube pranksters to families that bring you into their daily lives, the nominees have over a combined 92 million social followers…on Instagram alone!
Basically, these stars know what it’s like to be going viral, they practically live it.

So, who exactly are the Social Star nominees?
They are a mix of comedians, pranksters, families and multi-hyphenates who share their vlogs, challenges and even most personal moments with their audiences.
