Someone up there is smiling on us, because last Tuesday we woke up to discover that we were nominated for the Webby Awards on Online Film/Video for the third year in a row for EPIC FU. Not only that, we received two nominations, one for Best Reality/Variety Host, and one for Best Variety series.

In case you're not familiar with the Webby Awards, this is the 13th year of the event. The gala will be hosted by Seth Meyers from Saturday Night Live for the second straight year. Here's a snippet from their website:

Hailed as the "Internet's highest honor" by The New York Times, The Webby Awards is the leading international award honoring excellence on the Internet, including Websites, interactive advertising, online film and video, and mobile web sites. Established in 1996, the 13th Annual Webby Awards received over 10,000 entries from all 50 states and over 60 countries worldwide. The Webby Awards is presented by The International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences.

Needless to say, we're very honored. I think what I'm most proud of is having created a show that has been of a high enough quality to be consistently recognized over the three years we've been creating it. The company we're keeping is first rate. In the categories in which we are nominated this year, we're extremely proud to be alongside Boing Boing, David Pogue from The New York Times, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon from NBC, The Best Short Films in the World from Next New Networks, Moblogic from CBS, Matty Blake from NBC Sports, and Rocketboom.
