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.
