It may be an old-school brand, but the Volkswagon Beetle was one of the winners of the still-new-feeling Webby Awards, the 16th annual results of which were announced today.  The awards recognize excellence on the Internet and are sponsored by the International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences.

In addition to website categories, there are also some special categories. The Webby Person of the Year was Louis C.K., the Webby Artist of the Year was Bjork, and the Webby Breakout of the Year was Instagram.
