MrBeast Just Won a Huge Award

MrBeast, real name Jimmy Donaldson, won Creator of the Year at this year's Streamy Awards.

MrBeast is one of the most popular content creators today, and he just won the biggest award of his career. During Sunday's Streamy Awards, MrBeast—real name Jimmy Donaldson—walked away with the evening's top award in Creator of the Year. Gaining fame for his over-the-top giveaways, Donaldson currently has the second most subscribers out of any account on YouTube, tallying nearly 180 million subscribers of the video service.

With that fame, however, comes the downsides of the territory. In a podcast interview earlier this year, Donaldson opened up on his newfound fame, revealing he's no longer comfortable going out in public and has hired security around him at all times. "I leave these walls [of the studio] and it's just crazy," he said during an appearance on Colin and Samir. "I can't watch a movie [at the cinemas] unless I buy every ticket in the movie or people are just going to film me the whole time."

"No one's forcing me to do it," he added. "I love my fans, I love you guys. So like, I don't want to sound like I'm complaining and am just miserable."
