2018 Webby Award winners (which I help pick)


As an executive member of the International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences — that’s like AMPAS, the Academy that hands out the Oscars, except for the Internet — I help pick these winners.

A brief rundown of some of the film- and TV-related nods:

Steven Soderbergh, Film & Video Person of the Year, “for his incredible contributions to digital filmmaking.”
Laura Linney, Best Actress, “for her spellbinding work in the role of Wendy in the Netflix original series Ozark.”
Lens of Time, Best Documentary Series, from the California Academy of Sciences
The Late Late Show with James Corden, Best Entertainment Channel or Network
• Better Call Saul Los Pollos Hermanos Training Videos, Best Writing
The Daily Show Between the Scenes, Best Comedy
• StarWars.com, Best Movie & Film Web Site

And that just scratches the surface of this year’s Webby winners. See them all at The Webby Awards.

StarWars.com? *headscratch* So by “best movie and film website” I take it they mean “best website promoting a particular film or franchise” rather than “best website to discuss and critically analyze films.”

No, the category also encompasses criticism.

But really, there wasn’t any film criticism site that they/you considered better than the Star Wars promotional site? Huh.

Apparently not.
