So they might be the least exclusive award winners since your elementary school teacher handed out gold stars to the entire class, but their teeming numbers doesn’t signify any lack in quality. The 2008, 12th Annual Webby Awards today released the list of those who’ll give five-word acceptance speeches and take home silvery, springy, spiraly statuettes of binary at upcoming ceremonies during Internet Week in NYC.
Both the panel-of-industry-judges-determined and “People’s Voice” winners were announced. Some favorites include Angry Alien’s Bunny Theatre, Little Minx’s Exquisite Corpse, Wainy Days, You Suck at Photoshop, and Tom Green. Check out the full list here.
An argument could easily be made to substantiate all the winners (i.e. they’re all good), with one exception that Steve points out.
There’s no way the Ricther Scales should’ve won Best Viral Video for Here Comes Another Bubble. Ripping off Billy Joel is neither novel nor entertaining, and their cheesy rendition relies far too heavily on insider humor to be award-winning material. Tay Zonday or Obama Girl should’ve won this, no questions asked, but I suppose all academies are prone to gross errors in judgment.
