The Golden LoLcat Awards®


The Golden LoLcat Awards® are administered by three organizations who focus on various sectors of LoLcats: the Academy of Cat Literacy, the National Academy of wcuk Posts, and the International Academy of Memes and Email Fwds.

The Golden LoLcat Awards recognize excellence within various areas of LoLcats. The awards are a symbol of peer recognition from over 13,000 members of the Academy. Each member casts a ballot for the category of competition in their field of expertise.

The Golden LoLcat is awarded once a millennium to deserving entries which exhibit humor or artistic merit far above their peers. These are the LoLcats which challenge us to face the human condition and blur the boundaries of art and life. Without further introduction, I present this millennium’s winners.

“Does you have a money?” This seemingly simple question opened new fields of inquiry into the meaning of value and singlehandedly caused a widespread decline of the dollar to its lowest all-time levels.


The now deceased Arthur McBarrington pioneered the silent LoLcat genre in the early 20th century.


The eternal quest for cheezburgers is nowhere captured more starkly than the faces in dont crai…we’ll get cheezburger sumday.


The original. The classic. A triumph of the internet and, arguably, mankind’s single greatest achievement. I CAN HAS CHEEZBURGER defies description as the iconic LoLcat of the modern age. The original is now kept in the National Gallery behind 32 inch glass.
