Will the Queen Judge Choose NYT.com?

Webby Award nominations are out this morning. Nominees earning multiple nominations include NYTimes.com (18), Funny or Die (10), Google Creative Lab (8), The Guardian (6), BBC (6), CNN.com (6), NPR.org (5), Major League Baseball Advanced Media/MLBAM (5), and TED (5).

Also nominated: Justin Beiber, Jim Carey, What the Fuck Should I Make for Dinner and more.

Judges like Martha Stewart, Twitter co-founder Biz Stone, and HuffPost/AOL Editor-in-Chief Arianna Huffington will help select winners. Whether Arianna will choose NYTimes.com is a mystery. But starting today, you can also help decide who takes home a Webby by voting in The Webby People’s Voice Awards presented by Aol. The public has until April 28th to vote by visiting here.

This is the 15th Annual Webby Awards.

Winners will be announced  on May 3rd and awarded at a ceremony in New York City on June 13th, where they will deliver five-word speeches. Past speeches include Al Gore – “Please don’t recount this vote” -  and Jimmy Fallon – “Thank God Conan got promoted.” The ceremony will be broadcast live online.

See all the nominations divided into categories…It’s worth a look.
