The fifteenth-annual Webby Awards nominees have been announced, and AMC has been honored multiple times: the Mad Men Cocktail Culture app has been nominated in the Games category, the latest version of Mad Men Yourself has been nominated in the Viral Marketing category, and Liza Life Coach has been nominated for Best Individual Performance. Additionally, Breaking Bad‘s Better Call Saul Web site was recognized as an official honoree within the Comedy (Individual Short or Episode) category.
It’s worth noting that, as one of five nominees in their respective categories, the Mad Men Cocktail Culture app, Mad Men Yourself, and Liza Life Coach are each eligible for two awards: a Webby Award itself and a Webby People’s Voice Award.
