The Webby Awards have been celebrating excellence on the Internet since 1996, and for the past three years we’ve been bringing you the full experience from the Webby Awards Gala on YouTube. From the award-winning videos to the five word acceptance speeches to the celebrity interviews, you’ve seen the celebration first-hand, and we’re excited to bring you back for another year.

Following the Gala tonight, you can watch clips from the event here on YouTube, hosted by the web therapist herself, Lisa Kudrow. The Webbys YouTube channel will also feature show highlights, speeches and more.

Congratulations to all the YouTubers who were nominated for or won a 2011 Webby Award!
