Get the popcorn.

You probably thought the big award season was over. But we’ve got one more for you: the 2016 Nestie Awards.

Presenting the winners of the 2016 Nesties.

You probably thought the big award season was over. But we’ve got one more for you: the 2016 Nestie Awards. We created the Nesties to honor the incredible Nest Cam clips you share with us every day. After a slew of submissions, and some in-office belly laughs, we’ve selected our five winners. Take a look.

Best Supporting Canine Actor: “To Infinity and Beyond!”

“I noticed in the corner of my eye that our corgi Meeko was eyeing a jump into the beanbag chair. I knew it would be Nest Cam gold.” – Tung, Mission Viejo, CA

Best Disaster Flick: “EF3 Tornado.”

“My son Nathan (8 years old) got scared by the nasty weather report on TV. I decided to make it a teachable moment and show him what to do to prepare for a tornado. I grabbed a few water bottles, a flashlight, my wallet and cell phone, then took everyone to the master closet. Fast forward roughly 30 minutes. At 6:46 PM CT, the tornado hit our house.” – Glynn, Sunnyvale, TX

Best Sci-Fi: “Space Cam.”

Caught on an early Valentine’s Day morning in upstate New York. Clip submitted by Nan, Brooklyn, NYC

Best Comedic Lead: “Backfired.”

“Dawsee is very protective of her turf. Typically I get a notification around lunch that there has been some ‘movement’ in the house: It’s usually Dawsee barking at the mailman. Needless to say that this time it was a bowel movement.” – Mike, Alexandria, KY


Other nominees:

Best Feline Actor: “Cat fall.”

Clip submitted by Marc, MN

Best Drama: “Attack of the Plastic Bag”

Clip submitted by Sandy, Hampton Falls, NH

Nest Cam is a security camera – and an everything else camera. We made it to help you catch thieves and solve crimes. But you also caught moments like these. And we’re so glad you submitted them to the Nesties. Thank you for sharing.
