The Webby Awards are an annual event that honors everything that broke the internet. This year's awards will be livestreamed on Youtube on May 17, and leading up to the date, the organizers have named their winners. The big winner? Kanye West, who will be named as the Artist of the Year, which will honor him for having "harnessed the power of the Internet to reach new creative heights."

From his TIDAL roll-out to his Twitter presence "where [Kanye] is divisive and unafraid to speak his mind, share his woes and spread love to his fans, family and fellow artists," there's a lot to give Ye credit for.
