Kevin and Danielle Jonas, Adrian Grenier, Daniel Radcliffe, and John Mayer were among the stars that stepped out for the 15th Annual Webby Awards in New York City on Monday evening.

The Webby Awards celebrate the best of the web and comedian Zach Galifianakis was the big winner taking home four trophies including Best Web Personality and Best Online Variety Show.

Lisa Kudrow, who hosted the ceremony at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York, was also a winner and picked up her own trophies including Best Individual Performance in an Online Video for her show Web Therapy.

During the evening, the stars had to give their acceptance speeches in just five words, with LCD Soundsystem's James Murphy saying, "Thanks, this is deeply weird", on picking up the Artist Of The Year title.

Other stars noted for their online presence included Funny Or Die co-creator Will Ferrell, who picked up an award for one of his skits on the website, while Justin Bieber won Best Comedy Video for his April Fool's takeover of FunnyOrDie.com.

Arcade Fire also claimed two Webbys for their Wilderness Downtown music video.

In another notable five-word speech, Vogue Editor-in-Chief Anna Wintour delivered remarks clearly aimed at her audience: "Sometimes geek can be chic," the legendary editor said. In accepting its award for Person of the Year, IBM supercomputer Watson pointedly addressed the controversy of a computer walking away with an award clearly aimed at humans. "Person of the year. Ironic."

And, ignoring the famous Webby Award five-word speech protocol, funny man Will Ferrell accepted Funny or Die's award via video alongside site co-founders Adam McKay and Chris Henchy with a haiku. "Thanks for this award. I will put it in my house next to my instructional poetry textbooks. Thank you."

The winners were announced in May, but the awards were streamed live last night on the show's facebook last night. A list of all speeches can be found at: http://www.webbyawards.com/press/speeches.php.
