Looks like we don't have awards information. Sorry!

The thing that has made YouTube so successful is that you can relate to the people you're watching to a much higher degree than to the people you see on TV.
I just want to connect with you bros. That's all I care about, because you bros' support really means everything to me.
Comments are my main way to communicate with you bros.
I don't do interviews.
I make funny videos of me playing video games, and I share those moments.
When there's just so many games out there to play, Nintendo games just went to the bottom of that list.
The fact that Disney bought Maker Studios doesn't really change anything for me.
It was so much easier to connect with my fans when I was smaller. I could answer every message, and I enjoyed doing that.
Dropping the news to my parents that I was skipping my 'dream education' at Chalmers to sit at home recording videos while playing video games was not easy.
What I and other YouTubers do is a very different thing; it's almost like hanging around and watching your pal play games.
I'm not out to max my income. I think my viewers would call me on that right away if I did.
I'm so central to YouTube now, and that puts me in the spotlight and raises a lot of questions like, 'Why is he so big?'
In the very few interviews I've made, it doesn't matter how long we've talked to each other, the headline is still just about my paycheck.
I'd like to help other YouTubers.
I often get recognized on the street.
I'm just so very lucky to be able to do what I do for a living, and giving back is a way for me to express my gratitude. I'm so lucky to be in a position to help people, and that's appealing to me.
I just want to entertain; that is my main objective and what comes before everything else.
When I started my YouTube channel in 2010, I never imagined that one day it would be the most subscribed channel in the world and that I would be a part of such a great community.
Everyone has played video games at some point these days, and video games are fun.
My parents said that sitting at home playing video games all day won't bring you anywhere in life.
With my channel, and what people associate with Internet, most people think it goes viral, you become this huge thing super quick. I never had an explosion or a huge thing. It's just been something that has progressively been growing. It's been building.
Save the Children is an awesome charity that has helped more than 125 million children around the world, providing everything from school books to food to blankets and shelter.
