The Webby has been cast and the winners of the Internet's top prize are surprisingly star-studded.
Late-night newcomer Jimmy Fallon was named Person of the Year for the 13th annual incarnation of the Internet awards, saluted for using the Web to prepare him for taking the hosting reins from Conan O'Brien. The Saturday Night Live veteran used Twitter and videoblogs for feedback and, consequently, became "one of the most ardent online evangelists," in the words of the awards organizers.
Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane won the Film and Video Person of the Year trophy for his Web-based Cavalcade of Cartoon Comedy, which is now syndicated across Google's Content Network.
Funny gals also earned gongs for their viral work—including Lisa Kudrow and Sarah Silverman—as did rocker Trent Reznor.
