Who Wins The Internet? Google, Jay Z & Beyoncé

Google, Jay Z and crowdfunding site Kickstarter are at the top of this year's Webby Awards.

It's a 20 year old celebration of the best of the Internet. Anyone can cast an online vote for the "people's choice" category. This year's big winners in that category included Beyoncé, Tumblr, the NASA website and satirical news site The Onion.

Best viral video went to "Worst Twerk Fail EVER"... which took the Internet (and news stations) by storm and was later revealed as a prank by talk show host Jimmy Kimmel.

The Jamaican Bobsleigh Team won Athlete of the Year honours for using crowdfunding to finance its trip to the Sochi Olympics. The team raised $129,687.17 from the crowdfunding site Crowdtilt and also received unsolicited donations from the supporters of Dogecoin, the cryptocurrency inspired by a silly Internet meme.

The awards will be handed out on May 19 in New York in a ceremony famous for restricting winners to five-word acceptance speeches.

Here's a round up of the notable winners:
