Who else could you nominate?
In order to qualify for nomination the webseries has to be (from The Streamys website):

"Any original production produced for broadband distribution with at least three (3) episodes released in the 2008 calendar year can qualify for consideration. The show must also be easily viewed and available online, either via a major video sharing site or unique URL."

So, there are plenty of other webseries you might consider nominating - like Doctor Horrible and With The Angels. Are there any other webseries you are nominating?
