Webby Awards 2012 Comedy Nominees Announced: Funny Or Die, Conan O'Brien, The Onion And More

Posted: Updated:

The Webby Awards have announced their 2012 nominees, and with them the nominees for the best comedic content on the web. Called "The Internet's highest honor," the Webbys have given recognition to both the websites specializing in online comedic videos and individual performances. Comedian Patton Oswalt will be hosting the awards, which will stream on their website on Monday, May 21. (The comprehensive list of nominees in all categories can be found here.)

Up through 2006, the Webbys had a single category recognizing comedic content on the web, in the form of their "Humor" category. In 2007, they introduced the categories recognizing comedic video for "Individual Short or Episode," "Long Form or Series," and "Best Individual Performance."

Nominated once again were past winners Funny Or Die, CollegeHumor and The Onion, who all but dominated the Webbys when the Humor category was the sole recognition of comedy. Joining them this year is Team Coco, the online home of Conan O'Brien, which offers both full episodes of the TBS talk show "Conan" as well as quite a bit of original online content.
