WEBBY: THE OTHER AWARDS SHOW: Every magazine publishing company crows about the number of ASME nominations its titles receive, so what about the Webbys? The awards for best in digital media, which will be held May 19 at Cipriani Wall Street in New York, gave the most nominations to Condé Nast with 15; followed by Vice Media, with 11; The New York Times with 10; Google, BBC and PBS with nine each; Funny or Die with eight, and NPR with seven.
In total, Condé Nast and its subdivision Condé Nast Entertainment brought in a mix of 38 nominations and honorees across categories for a range of titles, while rivals Hearst reeled in eight for a variety of ESPN, Oprah Winfrey and Esquire shows. Wenner’s Rolling Stone nabbed three, and National Geographic grabbed five.
But, then, who’s counting?
