The 15th Annual Webby Awards will kick off tonight on Facebook, and will be hosted by ‘Friends’ alumni Lisa Kudrow, who is also a winner in the ‘best performance’ category for her work on Web Therapy. The show starts at 8:30 PM EST, with coverage of the red carpet arrivals set to air at 8PM. The Webby Awards celebrate the best across the Internet, from popular websites, interactive advertising, the coolest online films, videos, to apps, and more. Here’s what Kudrow had to say about tonight’s big event!
“I’m nervous anyway, just because to me, stand-ups are the guys who do a great job of. But I think it’ll be fun. It’s usually a pretty laid-back event, and the acceptance speeches are five words, so it goes quickly.” (Laughs) “I don’t know. When I get there, I’ll rehearse it and see what’s entailed.”
Set to make appearances alongside Kudrow is the Hangover star Zach Galifianakis, Angry Birds, Snoop Dogg, Jim Carrey, Jimmy Fallon, Justin Bieber, among several others.
