Frank Ocean may need to make some room on his mantel; he’s just won yet another piece of hardware. The Odd Future singer is among the winners for the 2013 Webby Awards, along with other notable stars like Justin Bieber and Lady Gaga.
The Webby Awards honor individuals and groups who have made strides online through a number of Web outlets including websites, mobile and social media.
Grammy-winner Ocean has nabbed a prize for Webby Person of the Year for his headline-making 2012 Tumblr post , titled “thank you’s,” where he opened up about his sexuality. In the post, Ocean candidly recalled a relationship he had with a man, writing, “He wouldn’t tell me the truth about his feelings for me for another three years. I couldn’t imagine keeping up my life without him.”
Meanwhile, Bieber is a Webbys winner for the social media campaign around his “Girlfriend” fragrance launch, which he released last year, around the same time he was promoting his Believe album release. He won for People’s Voice Award.
As for Lady Gaga, her Gaga’s Workshop won for Celebrity/Fan Social Presence Webby Award. The installation, which hit New York City’s Barneys in late 2011, allowed fans to purchase products hand-picked by the singer.
Other big winners include “House of Cards” producers Kevin Spacey and Dana Brunetti for Webby Special Achievement for the Netflix series, Jerry Seinfeld for Outstanding Comedic Performance for his web series “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee” as well as Grimes, who won for Webby Artist of the Year.
The 17th Annual Webby Awards — hosted by Patton Oswalt — will be held on May 22 at 9 a.m. ET, and will be available on-demand for fans to stream at watch.webbyawards.com.
