New York Times, Zach Galifianakis, Twitter Are Among This Year’s Webby Award Nominees

webby_logo04132010.jpgThe International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences today announced the nominees for the 14th annual Webby awards.

We joked yesterday about “David After Dentist” winning a Pulitzer, but this time we’re serious. The clip, which features a young boy coping with the effects of anasthetic, is up for a Best Viral Video award. Other notable nods include Zach Galifianakis, Stephen Colbert’s ColbertNation and location-based social game Foursquare. Lisa Kudrow also got a nomination. Who knew?

Among news outlets, The New York Times garnered 15 nominations. The BBC got nine. We’re going to call CollegeHumor a news outlet because it has an “Articles” section; the site has six noms, so it’s tied with satirical and awesome fake-news provider The Onion.

Full list of nominees after the jump.
