The presentation was poorly received.[4] This was due to its several technical failures.[5] Such technical failures included the video How to Get Nominated for a Streamy, created by the Fine Brothers stopping midway through its presentation.[6]

Its execution was also poorly received.[5] Streakers and the "molestation" of Chris Hardwick and Lisa Nova also led to negative reception of the presentation.[5][7] This caused the International Academy of Web Television to depart from the presentation of the award show, resulting in a two-year hiatus of the Streamys.[8]
