Nominated in YouTuber of the Year

About Philip DeFranco

In 2016, three years after toying with the idea of ending The Philip DeFranco Show, not only was Philip still going strong on YouTube, but he won two Streamy Awards, including one for Best Show of the Year. In a world that looks more chaotic every day, Philip and his opinionated videos are more vital than ever. Whether having a funny moment “TRYING OUT VR PORN FOR THE FIRST TIME,” having a serious discussion about the divisive presidential election results, or talking about controversies in the YouTube community, Philip is always candid, sarcastic, and maniacally fast-paced. After years of posting Monday through Thursday, in 2016 Phillip pushed his show schedule to a full 7 days a week, giving even more energy to his 5M subscribers.
