Website of book award winners?

I just picked up the Giller winner for $6 thanks to a Kobo coupon code, and it occurred to me that I might like to browse my collection by books which won awards (for example, to see a list of all Booker winners I own, or all Giller winners etc.) I know of some awards, but I don't know all of them. Is there a website that lists all the major book awards with a list of who won each year so I can search my library for books I have? Or is there an easier way to organize myself for the kind of search/tagging I want to do?

This Wikipedia page might give you a starting point: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_literary_awards. The external links at the end of the entry could be useful, too.

Ditto on the Wikipedia link provided by Shayne Parkinson above. That's what I use.

On the Sony bookstore you get an option of browsing through books by awards. Might not be the ideal thing to tag existing books, but in the future if you want to check out books based on what they've won, it could work as a search engine.

Thanks! It turns out I don;t have nearly as many as I thought---Booker and Giller prizes seem best represented. The problem is, I have read many of the books I saw on the lists but there is no ebook available for many of them.
