As in years past, winners at the 15th annual Webby Awards had five words to express their gratitude. In a slideshow, Julius Motal at PCMag picked the top 11 mini-speeches delivered by recipients of the awards, which celebrate online achievement. Here they are, in no particular order:
1. “Thanks. This is deeply weird.” — James Murphy of LCD Soundsystem, winner of Artist of the Year.
2. “Thank you, me learn flute. Me still work on flute.” — talk show host Conan O’Brien’s two speeches for winning in the celebrity and fan website categories.
3. “Tracy Morgan can suck my…” — sex columnist Dan Savage, who won the Webby special achievement award.
4. “Will this ceremony ever end?” — Ira Glass, host of Public Radio International’s “This American Life,” which won in the mobile entertainment on handheld devices category.
