At last night’s 3rd annual American Influencer Awards the current elite talent of social media including some of the world’s leading influencers came together in an all-virtual event to celebrate the diverse yet also inclusive talent that represents the social media sphere in 2020. On the evening of Sunday, December 6th the digital airwaves were tuned in to the award show dedicated to the Creators of the internet. The work they imagined taking center stage on the platform of creators for creators by creators in 23 categories!
Presented by MGM, the American Influencer Award event honored the absolute top ranking beauty contributors of 2020 and pretty much the influencers who have dominated social media channels these last few years. People like Kris Jenner, Tyra Banks, and Guy Tang just to start you out with a taste of what to expect from the evening’s EXTRAVAGANZA!
The event started at 9pm ET with a creatively presented opening montage of dance followed by an introduction dialogue by the co-hosts Frankie Grande and Kandee Johnson!
With 23 categories, there was a lot to cover in the length of the program. Here are some of my favorite categories and winners that were included in this year’s 2020 American Influencer Awards.
At this year’s American Influencer Awards show it was all about THE PINK CARPET of Hollywood and it went virtual with each individual nominee receiving their very own Pink Carpet moments to show off the fierce and simple wow factor such as @larissadoll in stylish boots and black outfit as she blew a kiss to the crowd.
