Outstanding achievements on the Web were honoured on Thursday night at the fourth annual Webby Awards.

The show has the glitz of the Oscars, although the Webby’s organizers insist the event is not "the Oscars of the Internet", but "the antidote to the Oscars".

Perhaps the biggest difference between this awards show and Hollywood's big night out is that acceptance speeches are limited to five words.

The winners - most of which found creative, if not publishable---ways to comply with the word count - were:
