(CNN) — Actor-comedian Zach Galifianakis, funny man Stephen Colbert, a blog about sometimes-regrettable text messages and the New York Times’ Web site top the list of nominees for the 2010 Webby Awards.

The venerable — at least by Internet standards — awards announced finalists for the honor Tuesday morning. Prizes, decided by judges including Martha Stewart and David Bowie, will be handed out June 14 on the final day of Internet Week in New York.

Other nominees include Twitter, Hulu, The Onion and a video featuring science greats Carl Sagan and Stephen Hawking.

The Webby Awards honor excellence on the Internet, from serious news sites to silly videos. Nominees are named in four categories: Web sites, interactive advertising, online film and video, and the mobile Web.
