The NFL’s power couple aren’t the only famous couple with Michelle Obama getting a nod for her ‘The Light Podcast,’ while her husband, former President Barack Obama, was nominated for his work with LinkedIn.

The awards are selected by the Academy, while The Webby People´s Voice Award is voted on by fans around the world.

Voting for that award is open now until April 18. Winners for all awards will be announced May 13 at a ceremony hosted by “Late Night with Seth Meyers” writer and comedian Amber Ruffin.

Last November, the Kelces’ New Heights show was crowned Spotify’s No. 1 sports podcast in the world for 2023.

New Heights was also the top sports podcast in America and the top American football podcast in the US, per Spotify.

 The show’s meteoric rise continued last month when the popular NFL duo scooped Podcast of the Year at the iHeart Radio Awards. It beat out the likes of My Favorite Murder and SmartLess to win Podcast of the Year.

Neither brother was in attendance at the ceremony in Austin, Texas, but they did record a video message for the audience, in which Travis joked: ‘Get the f*** outta here… people actually listen to this?’

Jason then went on to thank Taylor Swift’s fans for voting for them to win – amid his brother Travis’ high profile relationship with the pop superstar.
