The 40th Golden Joystick Awards will be hosted by actors Laura Bailey and Troy Baker (Abby and Joel in The Last of Us, respectively, as well as numerous roles in other games). The awards ceremony will be streamed on Tuesday, November 22 on Twitch and YouTube at 11:00 pm BST.
Golden Joysticks is the longest-running awards show in the industry, and most awards are awarded through public voting. Voting has now closed with over 3 million people in 18 categories, and in addition to awards, the show will feature featured guests and previous winners from across the gaming world, as well as new trailers and announcements. Finally, to top it all off, there will be a special video celebrating the 40th anniversary of the Golden Joystick Awards.
“News,” said Troy Baker, “Laura Bailey and I are hosting the iconic Golden Joystick Awards this year. The GJA recognizes the creators and performers who have made this year another stellar year for gaming. From indie developers to AAA projects, we’re honoring them all on November 22nd. Do not miss!”
