• Louis C.K., Juliette Lewis and more snag Webby awards for their online comedy work

    The winners of the 16th Annual Webby Awards have been announced and while there are more than 70 categories spanning every possible area of the Internet, the world of comedy made its mark this year, receiving awards in a variety of categories including some of the highest honors.

    It should come as no surprise that the Webby Person of the Year was comedian Louis C.K. whose latest stand-up special was released solely through his website and went on to achieve great success both critically and financially, demonstrating a new means for celebrities to reach their audience. Viral video sensation “Sh*t Girls Say” picked up Webby Actresses of the Year for Juliette Lewis and Graydon Sheppard. The Onion managed to pick up two awards for Best Writing (Editorial) and Humor. Even comedy for kids won a couple of awards, including The Muppets Mahna Mahna website and Sesame Street.
