And the Webbys go to....

Boot Camp feature for Monday, May 11, 2009

And the Webbys go to... I'm Fred Fishkin with technology Boot Camp, a report on gadgets and gear. They are the Internet's version of the Oscars or the Emmys. The Webby Awards are in their 13th year... presented by the International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences. While the actual awards ceremony doesn't take place until next month in New York....the list of winners has been announced. Executive Director David-Michel Davies...


"The Webby person of the year is going to be Jimmy Fallon from Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. He was a new host this year and he also premiered his show and his material in December before the show launched on TV."


Other winners include Trent Reznor and Sarah Silverman...


"She's being honored for a couple things. One was a little bit of an accidental thing which was a video she did on Late Night with Jimmy Kimmel. And that sort of became a huge YouTube sensation with her and Matt Damon."
