So we attended the 6th annual Shorty Awards on Monday night. We did so not just to honor Sawhorse Media/Shortys founder and friend of the show Greg Gallant’s RSVP, but also to witness what has become something of a cultural institution.

We Were in the Lounge for the Shorty Awards

The Shorty Awards were handed out last night at the Times Center in New York, with award winners including New York’s Mayor Michael Bloomberg for Foursquare Mayor of the Year; Justin Bieber for music; and Occupy Wall Street for activism.

Hosted by The Daily Show‘s Samantha Bee and hubby IRL Jason Jones (left).¬†According to the couple, they were happy to host and “honored to be away from their kids.”

A list of all the winners is available¬†here and photos from the event have been posted on Flickr. (Separate from the awards themselves, this awful thing happened after “The Misadventures of an Awkward Black Girl” won. Shameful and disgusting.)
