Watch Kanye West's 5-Word Acceptance Speech For His Webby Award

His wife Kim Kardashian won one, too.

Earlier this month, it was announced that Kanye West would receive the Artist of the Year award from the Webbys, the leaders in honoring Internet excellence, who were recognizing the rapper for his contributions to the online music industry.

Last night, the 20th Annual Webby Awards went down at Cipriani Wall St. in New York and though 'Ye wasn't in attendance, he did pre-record an acceptance speech that kept in tradition with the show of delivering it within 5 words.

"I can't stand short speeches," he deadpanned.

His wife Kim Kardashian also won last night, receiving the Break the Internet award, and recited an equally tongue-in-cheek speech: "Nude selfies 'til I die."
