Best Cat Videos Honored at Golden Kitty Awards

Move over Sundance, the Internet Cat Video Festival has just named the top feline web videos!

And even the Golden Kitty Award didn't put a smile on the winner's face.

Some 10,000 people showed up at the Minnesota State Fair Grandstand to check out the cat video fest organized by a prestigious museum: The Walker Art Center. The festival got off the ground last year.

Like any self respecting festival, this one had categories: There was comedy, drama, foreign, animated, musical and more.

And what's a video festival without stars? Celebri-cats like grumpy cat renowned for her perpetual frown. And lil’ Bub renowned for her ever-present tongue.

The two actually met at the fest, a photo-op memorialized with a couple of memorable 6 second Vines.

Internet favorites like the cat that loves diving in boxes, and dearly departed keyboard cat were inducted into the hall of fame. Fans voted on line for the Peoples Choice Awards.

The cat in a shark costume chasing a duck while riding a Roomba was one of several that rode to victory.

Fan favorite lil’ Bub has gene mutations that resulted in a shortened jaw which causes her tongue to stick out.

The winner of the golden kitty, the most popular peoples choice, was, of course, Grumpy Cat.

If she had given an acceptance speech, we suspect it would have begun..."I want to thank...no one."
