Kittens rule the show at Web-meme awards

AOL-owned Internet culture blog Urlesque announces the best of 2008's goofy memes. Of course, cat videos are at the top of the list.

Well, the Golden Globe nominations are out and everyone's buzzing about how Tom Cruise's fat-suit performance in Tropic Thunder is up against the late Heath Ledger's turn as the Joker in The Dark Knight. (Gee, wonder which one will win.)

But on the Web, there's another set of awards announcements making the rounds. The AOL-owned meme-culture blog Urlesque has announced the winners of its first annual "Urlies." The goofy categories include "Make It Stop" (winner: Rickrolling), "Breakout of the Year" (winner: the "Puppycam" craze), and the "WTF of the Year" (winner: the photo of the "Montauk Monster").

The best part, however, is an Oscars-inspired tribute to the Internet's veritable glut of funny cat videos. Worth a watch, embedded below:
