(IDG) -- Break out the champagne and tell the guy who runs the server to take the night off. Nominees were announced today for the 1999 Webby Awards, which recognize sites for their creativity and innovation.
Contenders for best site of the year range from Web darlings like Amazon.com (for Commerce) to lesser-known hopefuls, such as Red Meat (in Humor). Web-savvy celebrity judges include David Bowie for Music, Francis Ford Coppola in Film, and Esther Dyson in Finance. Ubiquitous Dilbert author Scott Adams will judge Humor.
The average netizen can cast an online ballot for the People's Voice Awards, which will also be announced during the award ceremony, held March 18 at the Herbst Theatre in San Francisco. More than 200,000 Web users are expected to vote, says the award's organizer, the International Academy of Digital Arts & Sciences (IADAS).
And now, a full list of the nominees. Virtual drum roll please:
