Five Words: The Webby Awards Gala Tonight

scolbert4545df3.jpgYep, it’s time once again for your favorite digital folks to come off the internets and into real life, at least for the night. We already know who the winners are and now we get to see them in action when they take the stage tonight at the 12th Annual Webby Awards Gala. The ceremony will be hosted by Seth Myers and feature David Byrne (Webby Lifetime Achievement), Stephen Colbert (Webby Person of The Year), will.i.am (Webby Artist of the Year), Arianna Huffington of The Huffington Post (Best Political Blog) all of whom will be alloted exactly five words for their acceptance speech No wonder entire event is sold out to capacity! Every awards show should institute such a rule.

Anyway, FishbowlNY was lucky enough to get an invite, so we’ll be there twittering the night away as usual, with photo proof to follow sometime tomorrow. In the meantime a complete list of winners and nominees can be found here.
