Vote for Your Favorite Online Videos

October 16, 2007 1:00 AM

Quick quiz. How many of you can guess which video I will be voting for as the funniest Web video in TV Guide’s upcoming Online Video Awards Contest?

Here are the nominees for funniest video:

1. “The Landlord” (FunnyOrDie)
2. “Dick in a Box” (NBC)
3. “The Star-Spangled Banner” (JibJab)
4. “Water Boardin’ USA” (MyDamnChannel)

You know I’m picking “Dick in a Box.” It still makes me laugh.

But you can vote for whatever you want. TV Guide will announce today the nominees in 18 categories for its inaugural Online Video Awards. Voting begins today at www.tvguide.com/videoawards. Winners will be chosen by fan voting and the awards will be presented Dec. 1 in Santa Monica.

Other categories include best TV show site on the Web, comedy site on the Web, TV drama Webisode, sci-fi Webisode, TV reality Webisode, original series for drama, comedy, reality and talk, as well as other categories.

Oh, and for the piece de resistance: Pearl was nominated in the actress category for original Web material. Yes, that’s Pearl the foul-mouthed toddler landlord.

God, I love Web video.
