You Have to See Kim Kardashian, Jessica Alba, and Lena Dunham's 5-Word Webby Award Speeches
The 20th annual Webby Awards honored 2015's biggest Internet visionaries on Monday with a star-studded ceremony at New York City's Cipriani Wall Street. This year's honorees included Kim Kardashian, Jessica Alba, Girls creators and Lenny Letter co-founders Lena Dunham and Jenni Konner, Kanye West, and more. The event, which was hosted by comedian Nick Offerman, stuck with tradition by keeping winners to the trademark 5-word Webby maximum for the acceptance speeches.
After hitting the red carpet in a black, asymmetrical, off-the-shoulder dress, Kardashian (below) happily accepted the first ever "Break the Internet Award" from tech columnist Kara Swisher, who called her "the most Googled person in the world" and "a media mogul for the new millennium." Upon consulting all of her funny friends for advice on the acceptance speech—even FaceTiming with a helpful Ellen DeGeneres while getting prepped for the show—the reality star took the stage with her carefully chosen five words: "Nude selfies 'til I die."
Alba took home the inaugural "Entrepreneur of the Year Award" for harnessing the power of the Internet and social media to build her successful business, The Honest Company, wearing a sizzling red dress with a scalloped, corset bust. Accepting the award from fellow entrepreneur and Warby Parker co-founder Neil Blumenthal, Alba said: "Guts. Heart. Passion. Drive. Wifi."
Dunham and Konner were honored with the "New Founders of the Year Award" for their bold and outspoken Lenny Letter newsletter. Ever the nonconformist, Dunham donned a black wide-legged jumpsuit atop a long-sleeve white button down. With their awards in hand, the duo declared: "Is Drake in the house?"
Although he wasn't physically in attendance, Kanye West accepted the Webby for Artist of the Year for his cutting-edge contributions to the online music industry, delivering his 5-word speech, "I can't stand short speeches" via a pre-taped acceptance video.
