It was an honor to be nominated for a Webby in the category "Movie and Film" alongside District 9, this year's People's Choice Winner, IFC.com, the Institute for Human Continuity and the National Film Board of Canada's Waterlife.nfb.ca — but to have actually won! Wow. Thank you, International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences!
We'd also like to extend our congratulations to Roger Ebert, who's been named Webby Person of the Year. From the citation: "In addition to his film criticism, which remains as eloquent as ever, his online journal has raised the bar for the level of poignancy, thoughtfulness and critique one can achieve on the Web, while at the same time shining a light on the most important issues facing journalism as it relates to the Internet itself. Ebert's insights — be they in film, online media, journalism or life — and his unparalleled level of engagement with followers and fans — has made the Internet a more thoughtful, engaging and self-aware environment."
