Louis C.K. Is the Webbys "Person of the Year"


The winners of the 16th annual Webby Awards have been announced, and among the celebrities being honored by the International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences (yes, that’s a real thing) are Louis C.K., whose wildly successful $5 distribution method for his “Live at the Beacon Theater” comedy special earned him Person of the Year; Will Ferrell, who scored Best Individual Performance for his portrayal of George W. Bush in a Funny or Die clip about the death of Osama Bin Laden; and Bjork, who will receive a Special Recognition Award for Artist of the Year.

Other winners of note include Graydon Sheppard and Juliette Lewis, who nabbed Actresses of the Year for their “Shit Girls Say” videos; Funny or Die’s cameo-packed “Drunk History Christmas,” which won for Best Online Film or Video Comedy; and Pinterest and Spotify, which were selected as the top social media site and music app, respectively.
