Sunday 24 April 2011
Arcade Fire, Justin Bieber and Zach Galifianakis are among the nominees in 70 categories for the 15th annual Webby Awards. Nominees for the best on the Internet's websites, interactive advertising, media, online film and video, and mobile apps were announced earlier this month, and online voting for the People's Voice Awards continues through April 28.
Candidates include Arcade Fire for Best Music, OK Go's "This Too Shall Pass" for Best Viral Marketing, Isabella Rossellini for Green Porno, and Zach Galifianakis's Between Two Ferns in three categories within the Online Film & Video section.
Angry Birds is competing against Mad Men's Cocktail Culture app for Best Mobile Games and Best Celebrity/Fansite finds U2, Jay-Z and Tom Petty vying for the top spot.
The nominees include a broad range of websites and blogs culled from last year's pop-culture phenomena, a spoof of the Social Network trailer in the running for Best Viral Video.
Categories include Best Comedy and Best Banner Ad, Weird Website and Best Use of Social Media. Mobile & Apps includes awards for games and news on handheld devices and tablets.

Winners will be announced May 3 and presented with the Webby Awards on June 13 in New York City. Recipients will accept the honor with the event's traditional five-word thank you speeches. The gala will be streamed live in HD on June 13.
