Each category includes both a Webby Award winner — selected by judges from the International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences — and a People's Voice Winner, which is voted by fans. This year's People Voice honorees received votes from more than 200 countries and territories, setting a new record for the Oscars (or People's Choice Awards) of the Internet.
