The Webby Awards are given out to everything from serious news sites to viral videos, but the most entertaining nominees are in the comedy categories (web dramas haven't come close yet). Nominations were announced today, and you can see the full list and vote at the Webby site.

Take a look at a few of the top nominees:

Zach Galifianakis' droll mock talk show Between Two Ferns is nominated in the Individual Short or Episode Category. Here he taunts Steve Carell about his failed movies:

Between Two Ferns would get my vote for this interview alone, as Zach's apparently Southern twin questions Sean Penn about celebrity and his humanitarian work in Haiti: "Is there a Six Flags down there?"

In the same category, you have to give Justin Bieber credit for self-parody in "Bieber Takes Over Funny or Die."

And if you haven't seen Lisa Kudrow's brilliant Web Therapy series, nominated in the Comedy: Long Form or Series category, you have several great seasons, with dazzling guest stars, to catch up with. Kudrow plays Fiona, a therapist who treats patients by webcam, but here she talks to Meryl Streep playing another therapist who is treating Fiona's husband for sexual confusion.
