David Bowie and the THE Beastie Boys were the big winners at this year's (07) annual Webby Awards in New York, picking up a Lifetime Achievement prize and Artist Of The Year respectively for their online efforts. The ceremony, dubbed the Oscars of the internet, is memorable for the strict five-word limit imposed on acceptance speeches. But Bowie - who was feted for UltraStar, his digital media company, and BowieArt, a website that connects emerging visual artists with collectors - had difficulty grasping the concept. He said, "I only get five words? S**t, that was five. Four more there. That's three," before winding up with, "Two," and quickly leaving the stage. Hip-hop trio The Beastie Boys received their award for embracing technology by accepting digital MP3 files as a music format and for their recent music video project, Awesome; I F**kin' Shot That! made up of fans' footage. They said, "We love the internet so much. And computers," before joking, "Can anyone fix my computer?" Winners were selected by the International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences, comprising of 550 members including The Simpsons creator Matt Groening and Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein.
