While you were considering pulling a scary prank on your boss, we finally figured out the mechanics behind the first ever YouTube Awards and it's all pretty simple. Check out this super-informative video from comedian co-host Reggie Watts which explains that any time you share a video from the nominated shortlist (categories include phenomenon/breakthrough/artist of the year), you're casting a vote. Pretty easy, huh? But be warned, voting closes today so get sharing and make sure to tune in to YouTube on Sunday as they'll be streaming the awards live, complete with performances from Lady Gaga, Eminem and M.I.A. This is the future, people!
