You may know that YouTube users could vote for the most popular videos on the video hosting site for the last five days out of a pre-selection that Google made.
You had to pick your favorites out of a selection of ten videos in each category, with YouTube accumulating scores after the period to present the winners to the public.
Now, after all votes have been cast Youtube presents the Winners of the 2006 Video Awards in the categories Most Creative, Best Comedy, Best Commentary, Best Series, Best Music Video, Most Inspirational and Most Adorable.
The videos below are in the same order in case you are wondering. Without further ado, here are the Youtube Video Awards 2006 Winners, enjoy the show:

Update: We had to remove two videos from the listing as they have been removed either by YouTube, by rights-holders, or by the original uploaders.
Update 2: You can check out the playlists from this YouTube user who seems to have added all videos that were considered for best video of the year to playlists. Just visit the site and watch all the videos in the playlists. Note that it is likely that some of the videos found here are not available anymore, but the majority of them will be.
