The awards were presented during a ceremony held on November 27th in London.
ENGINE won in the following categories:

The award-winning campaign honored the 20th anniversary of The Sopranos by having HBO’s official Twitter handle offer Soprano-inspired nicknames to anyone who tweeted them their first name. The response was immediate. Television networks, brands, and celebrities alike wanted in on a Sopranos nickname, including ABC’s “Good Morning America,” Wendy’s, Olive Garden, GIPHY, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Macaulay Culkin, and Laura Dern. In total, it garnered over 3 million impressions!
