Cast your vote online today to help We the Internet TV win the internet's top honor!
The Best Film & Video – Variety category is one of the most coveted nominations in the Webby Awards. For this year's nomination, We the Internet TV beat out stiff competition from CBS, ABC, the Guardian, and Yahoo! News' The Katie Couric Interview, among others.
The Webby Awards is the internet's most respected symbol of success. The 21st Annual Webby Awards received 13,000 entries from nearly all 50 states and 70 countries worldwide. Being nominated means We the Internet TV is one of the five best in the world in its Variety category (and among the top 9% of all work entered).
From head writer Lou Perez: "In a world oversaturated with political comedy content, we've always believed the way to break through and be seen was to keep hammering home our unique and independent perspective on politics, culture, and life. This Webby nomination is a validation of something we've believed from day one: there is a bigger audience thirsting for our content."
As a nominee, We the Internet TV is also eligible to win a Webby People's Voice Award, which is voted online by fans across the globe. Winners will be announced on Tuesday, April 25, 2017, and honored at a star-studded ceremony on Monday, May 15, 2017, in New York City.
