Lisa Kudrow to host 15th annual Webby Awards
NEW YORK (KABC) -- Lisa Kudrow will host the 15th annual Webby Awards scheduled for June 13 at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City.
One of her duties as host is to make sure the award winners stick to the Webby protocol by limiting their acceptance speeches to just five words.
Kudrow is also a winner herself. She won the Webby for best individual performance in an online video for her work in her series "Web Therapy." The show also won the award for best long-form comedy for the second year in a row.
Recipients were earlier announced by the Webbys, which honor Internet achievement.
Kudrow, whose credits include "Friends" and "The Comeback," is prepping "Web Therapy" for a TV adaptation, to debut on Showtime in July.
