It was announced earlier this month that Kanye West would be receiving a Webby Award for 2016 Artist of the Year. The award show explained that Kanye would receive this award for his "pioneering mastery and use of the Internet to change the music landscape." Last night, the Webby Awards took place, honoring the Jessica Jones series and #BlackLivesMatter among other winners. Kanye gave his acceptance speech by video and, limited to five words as per Webby tradition, declared "I can't stand short speeches."
