Last fall, Oscar the Grouch appeared in a surprisingly entertaining ad for Squarespace in which he becomes an overnight art sensation. Aw heck, just watch it again right here:

We’re pleased to learn that Oscar has won a Webby Award for his work! That guy just can’t catch a break, can he?

As is Webby tradition, award winners give five-word acceptance speeches. Oscar’s is… not five words? Depending on whether you think an exasperated groan is a word.

In addition to the Squarespace ad (which won in the category of “Video – Branded Entertainment: Scripted”), Sesame Street also received Webby Award nominations for Sesame Street’s YouTube channel and the Playground Pals with Julia game.

Congratulations to all the winners and nominees!
