NEW YORK -- Recipients of the Webby Award are famously limited to acceptance speeches of only five words.
The always-competitive Roger Ebert needed only three.
"Veni, vidi, vici," Ebert said as he claimed the Webby for Person of the Year. That's Latin for "I came, I saw, I conquered . . ."
Often called the Oscars of the Internet, the Webbys -- presented by the International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences -- honor the best in a wide range of Internet-related categories.
The 14th annual ceremony took place Monday night in New York City.
Ebert was cited "for his contributions to the craft of online writing and journalism.''
The Chicago Sun-Times' Pulitzer Prize-winning film critic earned praise for his insightful online journal and for making the Internet "a more thoughtful, engaging and self-aware environment."
In introducing him to an extended standing ovation, comedian Jimmy Fallon spoke of Ebert's "moving online meditations on life, communication and the world around him."
Among the "weberati" at the ceremony held at Cipriani Wall Street were the band OK Go (Film & Video Artist of the Year); Amy Poehler, who won a best actress Webby for her online series "Smart Girls at the Party"; Arianna Huffington; Ne-Yo; Buzz Aldrin; Lisa Kudrow; Isabella Rossellini, and "This American Life" host Ira Glass.
