Below are the winners of the 2014 Y@ Speak Awards, our second-annualish event honoring the best of New Orleans Twitter users (and based on the weekly feature of the same name). Actor/comedian/media personality/#nicejeans-wearing renaissance man Ian Hoch hosted the event at PubliQ House on Freret Street, where we screened highlights from a year in Y@ Speak, exposed Twitter crushes and gave away some prizes, while professional cooler Dalton and his wise-but-rough mentor dispatched an army of small-town thugs and saved the ol' Double Deuce roadhouse from an evil businessman and his tanktop-wearing henchmen.

Catch up on last night's mayhem via #twitterprom.

Online voters selected from the winners from a ballot with the top five finalists in each category, all based on an open-call nomination ballot.
