Freestyle 101 Wins The Webby! »

Well, folks, we did it! G4tv’s lil’ multi-platform hip hop show Freestyle 101 took home the Best Music Series award at the 2008 Webby Awards.

Our own FS101 Creator/Producer Frank Meyer and Creative Director Joe Lynch even flew out to New York for the ceremony and schmoozed with web luminaries such as hosts Judah Friedlander (30 Rock) and Seth Meyers (Mad TV, Saturday Night Live), Lorne Michaels (Saturday Night Live), Tim and Eric (Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!), David Byrne (Talking Heads), Stephen Colbert, Obama Girl, and Tay “Chocolate Rain” Zonday, who sang the national anthem.

Among the things that separates the Webbys from other awards shows is that winners are only given a 5-word speech, so the event moves fast! When accepting his trophy (a giant metallic spring!), Frank bounded up and delivered this stunning speech:

“Freestyle101, nerd pop meets hip-hop…that's a hyphen, bitches!"

G4 has never been so proud. Congrats!
