There will be no winsome Sally Field-style acceptance speech, no wacky Cher-inspired get-up, and definitely no overzealous kiss à la Adrien Brody. While we’re not prone to theatrics, we at are kvelling about our “Internet Oscar” nod.

On Tuesday, we got word that our site, for the third consecutive year, has been named an Official Webby Honoree — a title bestowed upon us by the International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences. The Webby Awards, which have been handed out since 1996, are widely seen as a yardstick of success among purveyors of new media.

The Forward’s site is in good company; among the six fellow honorees in the newspaper Web site category are The Wall Street Journal and USA Today.
