Esports Awards 2020 names final nominees for best player, best team, more

All categories are now open for voting in the 2020 Esports Awards. The finalists for the last 12 categories have also been revealed, including Coach of the Year, Player of the Year, and Team of the Year. The awards ceremony hopes to be a beacon of light in an uncertain year, featuring the biggest streamers and celebrating “those who are going above and beyond in the esports industry,” according to Michael Ashford, the Esports Awards’ managing director.

The ceremony, which will be held on November 21, will also honour co-CEO of ESL Gaming Craig ‘Torbull’ Levine and journalist Richard Lewis, both receiving a Lifetime Achievement award. The latter has won two Esports Journalist of the Year awards in the past and is nominated again this year. The pair join the exclusive Lifetime Achievement club alongside just two others, fighting game master Daigo Umehara and FPS legend Johnathan ‘Fatal1ty’ Wendel.

The ceremony will be presided over by Gabriella ‘LeTigress’ Devia-Allen, Chris ‘Montecristo’ Mykles, and Thom F. Badinger, so you know we’ll be in for a great night of entertainment, even if your favourites don’t win.
