From games to social groups, across desktops, phones, tablets, and consoles, the Roblox community has brought us closer than ever to our vision of Powering Imagination™. Everyone who we saw on-screen at the Bloxys should be proud of all their hard work and achievements.

This was by far the biggest Bloxy Awards ceremony ever. Here are some facts about the immensity of this year’s Bloxys:

  • Our Red Carpet event on Friday received 125K views from unique viewers.
  • The Bloxy Awards garnered 550K unique views in 48 hours and became Twitch’s featured stream on the homepage, beating out PAX South’s streams.
  • On Twitter, over 20K tweets used #BloxyAwards.
  • #BloxyAwards became a top trending Twitter hashtag for 2 consecutive days in the U.S. and U.K.

Now that’s what we call participation!

Special congratulations to everyone who won a Bloxy Award! These awards go to the most beloved games, videos, developers, and more in the Roblox community.
