The Webby Awards hosted their first ever WFH: Webby From Home celebration on Wednesday (May 19) in honor of the winners announced earlier in the day.

Patton Oswalt hosted the event, which featured the characteristic Webby five-word speeches from the winners. “Stay lit in dark times," Miley Cyrus, who received the Webby Special Achievement Award from her old Disney pal, Demi Lovato, said.

“What is Miley Cyrus up to? Seriously, though," Lovato said in her speech. "As we’ve made our way through this unprecedented time, any way to connect and communicate with people to laugh, share stories, sing with friends, any chance for us to come get together joyfully has become vitally important. And my friend Miley has provided an outlet for millions of people to do just that.”

“Find in self, love for others," Swizz Beatz said when accepting his Crush the Internet award, which he won with Timbaland for their Verzuz series. “Timbaland and Swizz Beatz haven’t just created some of the most bangin’ music of our times, they’ve also spent their careers uplifting other artists, which is why they created Verzuz," Jill Scott said when presenting the duo with the honor.

“Verzuz, buy for the artists," Timbaland concluded with his five-word speech.
