toyahsworld asked: Just voted for After Hours for the Webby Awards. This is by far my favorite internet series. The writing is fantastic and not only does every episode make me laugh, I feel like I learn something too. Fantastic!
Thanks, new friend!
For those who DON’T know, After Hours is nominated for a Webby Award for Best Writing. Every Webby award is technically (potentially) two awards. We’re in a category with four other nominees and a panel of official judges will pick their favorite. That’s the “proper” Webby, I guess, for lack of a better word.
The other thing is the Audience Choice award, which is determined entirely by you, the internet-going audience when you vote. We have previously won the Audience Choice award for Best Humor Site for the last two years.
This is the first time After Hours (and Cracked Video) has gotten some legitimate recognition. After Hours has always done well in terms of traffic and our audience likes it, and those are to be clear the only metrics that ACTUALLY matter, but it’s still nice to be included in categories like this, because it means the industry-at-large is at the very least aware of us. It’s also a nomination that specifically calls out the writing, which is pleasant.
Again, awards don’t actually mean anything. We didn’t make this show to win an award and go to a party, we made it because we like talking about Back to the Future. Winning or not winning an award will in no way impact the future of After Hours; we’ll keep making them as long as you keep liking them. If you’ve got a lot of running around to do today or if you, like me, hate signing in/signing up for things, don’t worry about it. But if you happen to have some free time, vote for After Hours to win the Audience Choice Webby for writing, if you think we’ve earned it.
