Tuesday, 03 May 2011 03:00 PM


LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Pop star Justin Bieber on Tuesday scored his first Webby Award, which celebrates the best of the Internet.

Comedian and "The Hangover" star Zach Galifianakis was the person with most wins thanks to his hugely popular web series "Between Two Ferns with Zach Galifianakis." Website Funny or Die, founded by Will Ferrell and Adam McKay, walked away with eight wins.

The Webby Awards present two honors -- The Webby Award, chosen by the International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences, and the People's Voice Award, chosen by the public.

Bieber received the People's Voice Award for the comedy video "Justin Bieber Takes Over Funny or Die."

Among the multiple winners were former "Friends" star Lisa Kudrow and her series "Web Therapy," the iPhone app Angry Birds and the New York Times website.

Talk show host Conan O'Brien, rapper Snoop Dogg, Jim Carrey, Twitter, Skype and Hulu were among other winners in a contest that encompassed everything from websites to interactive advertising and media, online film, video and mobile and apps.

Winners of the 15th Annual Webby Awards will pick up their honors at a ceremony in New York on June 3.

Organizers said nearly 10,000 entries from all over the U.S. and around the world were received for this year's awards.
