Kiss the next hour goodbye.

With the 17th Annual Webby Awards around the corner on April 9, the organization has released an addictively immersive Webby Winners Gallery + Archive.

For the first time in the awards’ 16-year history, you can view every single Webby Nominee and Winner in a virtual time machine of digital history, through nostalgic screen captures of websites as they looked in the year they were honored.

Check out a few Twitter-centric Webby nominees and winners of the past, below.

First of all, a quick hat tip to the gorgeous UI of the archive built by AREA 17 – you simply start typing after navigating to the archive page in order to conduct a search.

Second, here are a few fun looks back at Twitter Webby wins of yore:

Hubspot’s Twitter Grader, Nominee for IT Hardware/Software in 2009

Current.com’s Twouble With Twitters, Honoree for Animation in 2010
