Felicia Day and Freddie Wong to Host D.I.C.E. Awards 2014
â€œI'm thrilled to be hosting the D.I.C.E. Awards this year with Freddie Wong,â€ said Felicia Day. â€œI presented in 2012 and got a really cool t-shirt, so who knows what I'll bring home this year. Maybe Randy Pitchford in a suitcase.â€
â€œIâ€™ve been practicing reading off a homemade teleprompter, with the goal of not embarrassing myself in a room full of nerds,â€ said Freddie Wong. â€œIâ€™m excited to co-host with Felicia and hope my two days of self-imposed hosting practice will pay off.â€
â€œThe D.I.C.E. week is about The New Golden Age, and Felicia and Freddieâ€™s respective work very much reflects this theme as they have become true trailblazers in the expanding world of web-based video. They are a perfect fit for the stage as they are gamers at heart who will not only entertain, but also celebrate and honor our industryâ€™s game makers and creative visionaries,â€ said Martin Rae, president, Academy of Interactive Arts & Sciences. â€œTwitch has been a fantastic partner and we are looking forward to re-engaging with their audience to share the stellar sessions and Awards show that have defined our organization.â€
"We have more than 100 publishers and developers using Twitch to generate excitement and build communities around their games, so having the D.I.C.E. Summit on our platform really complements the trend and is a great honor,â€ said Matthew DiPietro, VP of Marketing, Twitch.
