2005 Webby Awards

The 9th annual 2005 Webby Awards were held in New York City on June 8, 2005. They were hosted by comedian Rob Corddry, and judging took place covering 4,300 sites from more than 40 countries by the International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences.[1][2] Al Gore was awarded a lifetime achievement award and for his five-word acceptance speech he delivered the frequently-cited line, "Please don't recount this vote" - a reference to the 2000 Florida election recount.[3][4]
