Webby Awards

ESPN.com Takes Home Webbies

webby_logoSome say the Webbies are the Academy Awards for websites.  Then the red carpet must be out because the winners of the 2009 edition of the awards have been announced.

The only category we care about is the winner in the Sports Category.  And to no one’s surprise ESPN takes home the prize.   They won the backing of both the judges and the web community who took part in the voting.  Other nominees included ESPN Euro 2008, Lacoste Future, NBC Olympics.com, and NHL.com.

The WWL’s mobile application also took the Webby in the Sports Category of that competition.

You can find all the 2009 Webby winners here.  Some of these sites are really amazing.  Now you can begin wasting the rest of your day.
