Below is the post “Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Kimmel and Ellen DeGeneres Lead Webby Nominations” which originally appeared on PEOPLE.com.

Do you know who's winning the Internet? (Other than cats.)

That's what the 19th annual Webby Awards, honoring "excellence on the Internet," promise to divulge. The nominations are out today, the winners will be announced April 27, and the Hannibal Buress-hosted ceremony takes place May 18. (It'll be streamed online on the awards' site the following morning.)

Leading the pack this year are Jimmy Fallon, with three nominations, and Ellen DeGeneres and Jimmy Kimmel, each with two.

Fallon's up for awards in both the celebrity (handheld devices) and website categories. Kimmel's nominated twice for his Halloween Candy and Mean Tweets bits, while DeGeneres is up for a social media award.

Other nominees include OK Go for their video for "I Won't Let You Down," Zach Galifianakis for the episode of "Between Two Ferns" with President Barack Obama, and puzzlingly, Jerry Garcia, for JerryGarcia.com. (It's possible a Jerry Garcia hologram has been readied to accept the award in his honor should he win, à la Tupac at Coachella.)

Check out the full list of nominees at the Webby Awards site.
