Will Ferrell, Justin Bieber lead list of Webby Award winners


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: At the Webby Awards, which were held Monday night in New York City’s Hammerstein Ballroom, winners are tasked with keeping their acceptance speech to five words.

Some used that limit to get very creative.

“Tracy Morgan can suck my …,” said Dan Savage, founder of the It Gets Better Project who was reacting to the “30 Rock” star’s anti-gay slurs.

Others just ignored the rule altogether.

“Thanks for this award,” said Will Ferrell, who accepted on behalf of Funny or Die with a celebratory haiku poem. “I will put it in my house next to my instructional poetry textbooks. Thank you.”

The Webbys honor the best of the Internet. As such, host Lisa Kudrow presided over a ceremony that streamed live online. Winners who showed included Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour and Groupon CEO Andrew Mason. Celebs who won but didn’t show included Justin Bieber, Jim Carrey, Conan O’Brien and the Arcade Fire.
