Hulu is known for a variety of things—our April Fool’s pranks, keepin’ it real in the office, and ultimately creating a service that our users, advertisers and content owners unabashedly love. And it looks like we are up for a new badge to add to our name.
This year, Hulu’s been nominated for the 2011’s Webby Award in the Best Practice category. Best Practice means excellence in content, structure & navigation, visual design, interactivity, functionality and overall experience. We are happy to share the nomination with some pretty awesome platforms: Skype, DropBox, the Guardian and the New York Times. We are humbled by the company in this category and so thrilled for the recognition.
What is a Webby Award? Presented by the International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences, Webby Awards are most commonly known as “The Oscars of the Internet.” Think little gold men meet The Geek Squad.
In 2010, we were honored to win the People’s Voice Award, and we’re hoping we’ve still got “it.” But it’s completely up to you! Please show your Hulu love and cast your vote. Polls close Thursday, April 28, 2011, so spread the word to your friends, neighbors, grandma, barista, pet hamster – anyone and everyone. Then tune for the live Webby Awards ceremony at Radio City Music Hall on Monday, June 13.
Thank you for your support and excitement. We’ll keep you in our mind and hearts if we are lucky enough to snag that coveted five-word acceptance speech.
