Alia "SSSniperWolf" Shelesh has won "favorite gamer" at the Kids Choice Awards 2020, an award she won last year as well. In the process, she beat out DanTDM, GamerGirl, Ninja, and PrestonPlayz, all of whom were nominated as well. Meanwhile, Minecraft took home "favorite game" this year, an award it's also won in the past. This year, it triumphed over Fortnite, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, and Mario Kart Tour on its way to claiming the prize.
Unlike previous years, both Mojang and SSSniperWolf had to accept the awards virtually, because this year's show was online only due to concerns over coronavirus. As you may know, the event was originally scheduled to go down in March, but was rescheduled due to the aforementioned pandemic.
Despite being smaller in scope, the show still attracted many of the world's biggest stars, including BTS, Ariana Grande, Shawn Mendes, Ellen DeGeneres, and many more.

As you would expect, while there wasn't much debate about Minecraft winning favorite game, not everyone on the Internet was happy their favorite gaming personalities lost out to SSSniperWolf, however, fans of the mega YouTube star were quite thrilled:
