Every year, the Webby Awards honor the best of the internet. From games to podcasts to videos to influencers, the awards cover a wide range of internet content — including The Verge. In the 2019 competition, The Verge took home two awards for its Science YouTube channel, one for The Vergecast, and it was nominated for Why’d You Push That Button.

Disney won the most awards this year: 32 across all Webby categories. National Geographic won 17 awards for categories including best photography, best data visualization, and best user experience. Google followed with 14 awards, including best user interface, productivity, and technical achievement. Vice, Condé Nast, and HBO all received nearly a dozen awards apiece.

In advertising, Samsung’s ad agency of choice, R/GA, took home an award for its Fortnite-exclusive Galaxy skin, while BBDO New York won an award for AT&T’s “The Face of Distracted Driving” ad. Fortnite was, of course, the game of the year, and Serial was the best podcast. In more contested categories, Childish Gambino’s “This is America” won best music video, and Kesha’s “I Need a Woman” won best editing. In online performances, the fan parody Deadpool: The Musical 2 won an award for best writing, and in advertising, the 360i agency won a Webby for best use of machine learning for HBO’s Westworld: The Maze, an ad for clever Westworld Alexa skill.

Man, the sheer number of Webby awards is kind of overwhelming.

Yeah, they need to turn the categories into actual awards. Like "Webby Social Awards" or "Webby Game Awards" – it wouldn’t change the number of awards, but it makes a difference when talking about it or writing about it.

All those Webby awards, but not a single one for Peter Parker. Sad
