Emmys and Oscars, move over: Today's celebs are raking in the Internet accolades as well. Brad Pitt and Jim Carrey lead a veritable who's who of Hollywood favorites at this year's Webby Awards, hosted by B.J. Novak of NBC's The Office.
Pitt's big win is in the activism category for his Make It Right foundation, which he launched in 2007 to help rebuild New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina. Carrey garnered both a Webby and a people's voice award for his visually stunning official fan site that boldly showcases his unique creativity and trippy humor.
Recognizing achievements in more than 70 categories, including Web sites, online videos and films, blogs and other segments of digital culture, the 14th annual Webbys are considered the Oscars of the online world.

Having insisted on Sunday night that fans should not be concerned about his behavior – "This is no breakdown! It's a breakthrough! And if you'll just loosen these straps, I'll show you the difference!" he Tweeted – Jim Carrey may now have hoisted a new red flag.
In what is being labeled as a response to the press coverage of his recent Tweets, Carrey released a statement, which he also posted: "To anyone whose grievances have chosen me as their cause, I would say first, that I recognize that tendency in myself, but if you knew me well, you'd see that your resentment has been misplaced. I wish every human being nothing but love and immeasurable happiness. Now, I'm going to re-enter the Twitter stream and see if there is anyone left to offend!"
Tuesday night brought another explosion of Carrey Tweets, all of which follow his recent breakup with Jenny McCarthy.

Jim Carrey's relationship with Jenny McCarthy isn't the only thing that's in the past. So too, he says, is a part of himself he's happy to shed.
"I have freed Truman at long last!," Carrey wrote in an explosion of post-breakup Tweets, referring to his alter-ego from The Truman Show whose entire life was surreptitiously filmed for a reality show.
"I am grateful for my avatar's many yrs of dedicated service, but no one has ever won the Tour De France while back peddling. … so I killed him," he wrote late Sunday night. "I do not plan 2 bow to expectations or to be confined by the fear of losing altitude in the 'statusphere'! (my word)."

"You would never have known that [the breakup] had just happened," says a source. "Jim is a constant professional."

What do you get the guy that has everything for Valentine's Day? That was the question that actress Jenny McCarthy was facing as the oft-vexing holiday was fast approaching last week.
Stuck between a rock and a romantic place, and with no clue as to what to get for her partner of four years, Jim Carrey, the actress turned to the most logical place for answers to matters of the heart: She Tweeted.
"I really didn't know what to do," McCarthy tells PEOPLE, "I went on my Twitter, and I said, 'Hey guys, can you help me come up with a good gift for Jim?"
Tweet and ye shall receive. It wasn't long before the actress was inundated with suggestions. "It seemed like I looked through thousands of them," McCarthy, 37, tells PEOPLE. "There were too many strange ones to remember, but the best one was, 'Why don't you get a skywriter?' " And so the legend of the "J 'Hearts' J" was born ... almost.
