New Zealand actress Jessica Lee Rose, known on video-sharing site YouTube as “lonelygirl15”, won the best actress award for her blogs about the troubled life of a teenager called Bree which were eventually discovered to be a hoax.

The best actor award went to Ninja of the online comedy series Ask a Ninja, which was created by Los Angeles comedians Kent Nichols and Douglas Sarine and features a black-clad ninja answering emails in ninja lingo with a signature sign-off, “I look forward to killing you soon”.

The winners of this year’s awards will be honored in ceremonies in New York on June 4 and June 5 where winners are only allowed a five-word acceptance speech.

“Our goal is to honour all the work on the web,” David-Michel Davies, executive director of the Webbys which are presented by the International Academy of Digital Arts and Science, said.
