Roget Ebert Wins Webby Person of the Year

Can we just kvell for a moment? It takes an incredibly notable person to have their jaw removed and it be the least notable thing about them. We follow film critic Roger Ebert on Twitter like giddy fanboys awaiting his next insight. Like this one. And this one.

From PRWeb:

Webby Person of the Year: Roger Ebert has raised the bar for online journalism and writing through his poignant and wildly popular blog, Roger Ebert’s Journal (http://blogs.suntimes.com/ebert/). Using his blog as a platform for thoughtful discussion on film, media, politics, and life itself, Ebert has found a powerful new voice and attracted an audience that thrives on vigorous debate and conversation.

This award says more about the caliber of the Webbys than Ebert. Congrats to both.
