At the Webby ceremony last night nominees and winners including National Geographic who won for Best Use of Photography picked up their awards. Winners were given 5 words to thank colleagues, spouses, parents, teachers, and a random man they once bumped into on the street when they were broke and told them they would make it to the top, go to lavish award ceremonies where they would get five words to… Anyway here are 10 favorites in no particular order.
