Rob Corddry to host Webby Awards
The New York Times has described the Webby Awards as "the online equivalent of an Oscar," and they're right, both awards are equally meaningless despite the noise and pageantry that surrounds them. But like the Oscars, at least they're getting someone funny to lead the proceedings. Our pal Rob Corddry from The Daily Show is returning to host the awards for their tenth year. Over 700 people are expected to attend the event when it takes place in the Cipriani Wall Street area of NYC on June 12. As usual, acceptance speeches can only be five words long, which is definitely something I think the Oscars should implement as well.
