Wow. So Gratitude.
Following a week of frenzied public voting, the coveted title of Webby Meme of the Year is hereby awarded to none other than Doge, the Shiba Inu whose raised eyebrows, dashing fashion, and very questionable grammar took the Internet by storm. Well-deserved.
Doge, an honored guest at last night’s 18th Annual Webby Awards, joins an illustrious group of past winners including Nyan Cat and Grumpy Cat. Doge is the first non-feline to win the award, and beat out a fierce group of competitors including Hot Dog Legs, #thiscouldbeusbutyouplayin, Twerking, and Pharrell’s hat.
Watch the Webby Awards on YouTube to see the rest of the evening’s highlights.
