Richard Lewis won Esports Journalist of the Year and was criticizing the mainstream media in harsh words. He called Kotaku and Polygon and he complained about their little understanding of esports. Lewis said every year that he would create hit pieces on a streamer, trying to cancel the streamer, so that they could have one of their mates in the city.
He was also ridiculed by the lack of evidence-oriented and sensationalist journalists in covering a CS: GO competition as a Trump rally. Lewis congratulated the honest and truthful reporters and those who tried to make the truth known and to criticise those that did not. The most influential response of the night was this speech, with most of the audience ovating it.
