We’re excited (and incredibly honored) to announce that we’ve won the Crunchie award for Best video startup at the 2007 Crunchies! The awards show, held on Friday at the Herbst Theater in San Francisco, was an inaugural event organized by TechCrunch, GigaOm, Read/WriteWeb, and VentureBeat to “recognize and celebrate the most compelling startups, internet and technology innovations of the year”. Most importantly, it was users who picked the winners by casting online votes so thank you all for your support!
We were on hand for the fun and festivities of the ceremony that featured industry heavyweights (like Mark Zuckerberg and Kevin Rose), a terrific performance by the Richter Scales, and a very entertaining acceptance speech by Fake Steve Jobs. But the highlight of the evening for me – besides picking up the award of course… – was getting to meet MC Hammer (yes, you read that right) at the after party.
Again, on behalf of the entire Hulu team, thanks so much for your votes and we look forward to living up to these expectations in 2008.
