On the scene at the 2013 Webby Awards: What you didn't see at home

The Webby Awards aren’t the world’s shortest award ceremony — including a dinner break, the ceremony takes the standard three hours — but they feel like it. Part of that is the famous five-word limit on acceptance speeches (like Humans of New York’s Brandon Stanton: “Still can’t pay my rent”); part of it is just how fast everyone moves. At last night’s 17th annual ceremony, host Patton Oswalt was a speedy presence, which is why (I assume) he felt the need to jokingly remind us that, no really, he’s out of shape.

The atmosphere inside the Cipriani’s cavernous Wall Street ballroom was decidedly different than it was for anyone streaming the show at home: All the funniest jokes didn’t get the best reactions, Frank Ocean baffled most of the room, and The Onion guys were maybe a little rude?

Here’s what you didn’t see this year…

SXSW: 'Burning Love' cast talk online success, parody, and their brilliant commenters -- VIDEO

Ken Marino, Rob Huebel, and the rest of the Burning Love crew were at SXSW this week for a screening and to take questions about their success on Yahoo! (despite Huebel calling their users “stupid”) and their transition to “real” TV with E! recently picking up the show.

What was only meant to be a one-off — Marino says his wife wrote it as just a short piece “that we were going to try to get on Funny Or Die” — has turned into a successful parody show, both on and now off the web. But lampooning a reality show like The Bachelor can have its pitfalls. Sometimes viewers can’t tell if the show is a joke or not. Among the viewer comments the cast talk about below: “It honestly seems a little scripted to me, but hey, aren’t most reality shows?”

What’s Trending‘s Shira Lazar sat down with the Burning Love cast in Austin on Sunday. Check out their conversation below.

'Burning Love' premiere features a nervous Michael Cera and a dancing Adam Scott -- VIDEO

The best Valentine’s Day treat of all has arrived: The premiere of Burning Love is online.

The web series, which is a spoof of The Bachelor/Bachelorette, returns for a second season. Last season it was a guy looking for love; this time around, crazy Julie (June Diane Raphael) is back, but now she’s looking to get married. The eligible dudes? Adam Scott, Adam Brody, Michael Cera, Jerry O’Connell, Colin Hanks and many more, all playing the various types that these reality shows cast: a“Bad Boy,” a “Rapper,” a “Single Dad,” and even a “Luxurious Lifestyle Consultant.”

Hosted once again by the cheesy Bill Tundle (Michael Ian Black), this is a show for anyone who has ever watched The Bachelor and asked themselves why anyone would subject themselves to that level of embarrassment. And it’s also a show for people who want to find love – or at least want to get really drunk and maybe start a fight.

Check out the first two episodes below and find out whom Julie asks to “hold her box”: READ FULL STORY

'Burning Love': Ken Marino shows off season 2, reveals season 3 theme -- EXCLUSIVE

After assembling a laugh-out-loud cast for the first season of his dating show parody Burning Love, Ken Marino set an ultra-high bar as he stepped behind the camera to produce the web series’ second season. But, as you can see from this exclusive cast shot, Marino has outdone himself. From Party Down cast mates to comic mainstays, the next set of suitors in this “loving homage” to The Bachelorette is chockablock with gut busters.

Below, Marino talks EW through season 2 with four exclusive pics, singles out some of the early favorites, and reveals the theme of season 3. Read on… READ FULL STORY
