YouTube really hit it off last year with its innovative form of entertainment which combined with ease of use boosted online user participation to impressive new heights. To celebrate, they recently hosted the first YouTube video awards. The nominees where chosen by YouTube and the YouTube community under seven categories ranging from most adorable to best comedy, and after five days of voting the winners have been chosen.

"They saw an opportunity for worldwide visibility and through their success have changed the landscape of how a 'star' is defined," Jamie Byrne, head of YouTube product marketing, said in a statement. "As the masses learned about online video, many of the creators of these videos established themselves as personalities, going from the seemingly unknown to international celebrity, overnight."

All the winning videos have something unique to them, and if you havenít had the chance to take a peek yet, you will find it more than worth it.
