Yeezy wasn't able to deliver his usual "stream of consciousness".
Kanye West won a Webby for Artist Of The Year and delivered his shortest acceptance speech ever – consisting of 5 words.
The ‘TLOP’ rapper, known for his long speeches, was awarded for his cutting-edge contributions to the online music industry over the last year.
And although he wasn’t present, in the tradition of the show, Yeezy delivered a 5-word acceptance speech.
“I can’t stand short speeches,” he said in a pre-recorded video.
Meanwhile, Kim Kardashian also picked up a prize that was basically tailor-made for her – ‘Break The Internet Award’.
For her 5-word speech, the reality star promised to continue posting naked pictures online.
“Nude selfies ‘till I die,” she said.
Among other awards handed out on the night, Spike Lee gave out the very first Webby for Social Movement Of The Year to #BlackLivesMatter, while Action Bronson awarded VICE with Best Cultural Website.
