Looks like Sarah Silverman's fake hookup with Matt Damon is still paying off!
In September, the comedian won an Emmy for her hit song, "I'm F**king Matt Damon," and now the viral video nabbed her a best actress Webby award. Silverman was also honored with the best political video award for her "Great Schlep" video, a plea for Jewish kids to urge their grandparents to vote for Barack Obama.
Other high-profile Webby winners include Jimmy Fallon, who was named Webby person of the year for using the Internet, specifically his blog, to refine his talk show hosting skills before his late night debut. Lisa Kudrow won outstanding comedic performance for her Web-only series Web Therapy and rocker Trent Reznor of Nine Inch Nails was named Webby artist of the year.
