The Webby Welcomes the Skinny
So, you may recall a couple weeks ago, I wrote here about how the online series, The Skinny -- written, directed by and starring Jessie Kahnweiler -- was nominated for a Webby Award as Best Drama Long Form series. I've written about extensively on the pages about Jessie, and she's a very talented all-around filmmaker, but this was an uphill category, given that one of the competitors was a meticulous Star Trek fan faction show, and another was an NBC-produced show about their program, Heroes Reborn.
Well, the winners have been announced.
And...The Skinny won!
I'm not quite sure how it works, because the Star Trek thing also won as "People's Voice", but I'm not a-lying about The Skinny being the Webby Award winner. Here. Proof --
And further proof. So, I can't be misinterpreting anything --
I embedded the premiere episode in the link above, so for thems interested, you can get to it there. Please note, as I said before, that the show is decidedly crude and not to everyone's taste. But it's also now a Webby Awards winner.
Congrats and huzzah.
I don't try to steers ya wrong.
