As if we needed any further proof that online Web series were finally maturing into a viable entertainment alternative, we have the first Streamys awards show, held Saturday night in the Wadsworth Theatre in Los Angeles.

All the hallmarks of Emmys were there -- the red carpet, the awkwardly scripted presenter banter, the clip montages. And yes, even in a tech-savvy group such as this, the technical awards were handed out separately with only a brief acknowledgment during the celeb-heavy portion of the evening. Poor tech guys; one day they'll get their shot at glory!

Fan favorite Joss Whedon's writers strike-inspired Web project, "Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog" was the big winner of the evening, winning several awards, including the audience choice.

Here's a list of all the winners:
