'Prop. 8' musical spoof among Webby Award winners

May 5, 2009 |  1:49 pm's "Prop 8: The Musical" starring Jack Black and Neil Patrick Harris as well as the Sundance Channel's "Green Porno" starring Isabella Rossellini are among the notable recipients of Webby Awards, which were announced today.

Oh, yeah, and Paris Hilton was among the losers. Her video reply to John McCain's campaign ad claimed neither a jury nor people's voice prize.

What's notable about the current crop of Webby Awards winners is the overlap — and disagreement — between those sets of awards. For example, both sets of kudos agreed that 1000 Awesome Things was the best culture/personal blog. However, in terms of humor websites, the jurors preferred while regular Web users voted for FailBlog.

Check out the full list of recipients here. Winners will receive their honors at a ceremony held on June 8 in New York City, hosted by "Saturday Night Live" star Seth Myers.


Webby Awards nominees: At least the Webby Awards appreciate Paris Hilton!
