The invite list to what's essentially gaming's Oscars is pretty exclusive, but thanks to the magic of Twitch you won't need to call in any favors to watch the Academy of Interactive Arts and Science's annual award show from the DICE summit in Las Vegas tonight. Starting at 10:30 PM ET/ 7:30 PM PT, you can catch what some 22,000 members of the game development and publishing community thought were the best titles released last year.

Bloodborne, Fallout 4, Ori and the Blind Forest, Rise of the Tomb Raider and The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt are all up for the most prestigious Game of the Year award in the land. Past winners include Dragon Age: Inquisition and Journey. But there are a slew of other categories too (PDF), including Outstanding Achievement in Character (I'm pulling for Max Caulfield from Life is Strange) and Outstanding Achievement in Sound Design. Comedian Pete Holmes has hosting duties once again, so it should be a pretty good show.

If you tuned into today's intimate chat with industry luminary Hideo Kojima and his new BFF and Silent Hills co-conspirator, filmmaker Guillermo del Toro, earlier you'll know just how good the video quality from this year's event is. And hey, watching the Twitch stream will probably give you a better view of the action than actually being in the room would. What game do you want to win? Let us know in the comments.
