Also dubbed Special Honorees are Kristen Bell, “Some Good News” hosted by John Krasinski, Miley Cyrus (for “Bright Minded: Live with Miley”), DJ D-Nice (Webby Artist of the Year), Swizz Beatz and Timbaland (Webby Break the Internet Award winners for their Instagram Live Verzuz battles), Chef Massimo Bottura, Google Classroom, Invisible Hands, Shopping Angels, the Black Fairy Godmother Simone Gordon, Swab Squad, Trevor Bedford and Dr. Tatiana Prowell, as well as Webby Voice of the Year honoree “The Daily” and Webby Breakout of the Year winner Houseparty.

    The virtual “Webbys From Home” broadcast begins streaming at 3 p.m. ET on Tuesday, May 19, with presenters including Dr. Anthony Fauci, FKA Twigs, Rhett & Link, Questlove, Hannibal Buress, Arianna Huffington and Imgoen Heap.
