The Fine Brothers run the MyMusic channel, for which they've earned a slew of other nominations such as Best Direction, Best Writing for a Comedy Series and Best Production Design. Bell is the star of "Husbands," which netted him a nomination for Best Male Performance in a Comedy. Both Bernie Su and Ashley Clements are involved in "The Lizzie Bennet Diaries," the former earning a nomination for his writing and the latter for her acting.
The winners of these awards will be announced live at the ceremony, which AMC's "Talking Dead" host and web personality Chris Hardwick will oversee.
