The speeches at this year’s Webby Awards were as weird, great and, at times, hilarious as the winning choices celebrated at the glittering ceremony in New York last night.

Referred to as the Oscars of the internet, the Webby Awards, hosted by the International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences, honour excellence in website design, interactive advertising, film and video, mobile and applications in various categories.

Traditionally, speeches at the awards are restricted to five words. Last night’s show, in its 15th year, was hosted by US actress Lisa Kudrow.

Here are five of the funniest and strangest moments from last night:
