By Sarah Walker

If any celebrity was destined to take home an award for breaking the internet, it was Kim Kardashian. The 35-year-old was among several celebrities, including Jessica Alba and Lena Dunham, who won trophies at the Webby Awards in New York City on Monday night (May 16).

Not only did the reality TV star nab the evening's most notable prize, the Break the Internet award, but it was also the inaugural win for this particular award. The curvaceous brunette was a shoo-in thanks to her "unparalleled success online... [she has an] undeniable talent and natural ability to use the Internet to create buzz, engage with fans and communities, and get the world to pay attention," according to the Webbys.

When accepting her trophy, the mom to two said five short words, which garnered ample applause and laughter from the audience: "Nude selfies until I die."


For her part, Jessica was recognized as Webby's Entrepreneur of the Year. The 35-year-old is not only an actress and philanthropist, but she's also the owner of the eco-friendly beauty and baby brand The Honest Company. Wearing a stunning red dress, the mom of two captured much of the evening on Snapchat.

Jessica also spent some time posing on the red carpet alongside fellow honoree Lena.

The Girls creator was honoured alongside Jenni Konner, the popular program's showrunner, as New Founders of the Year. The duo was recognized for their use of social media in creating the juggernaut that is the hit HBO series. In the sweetest moment of the night, the pair picked up not only their trophy, but also an oversized cupcake, as they each recently celebrated birthdays. The crowd even burst into song and sang them "Happy Birthday."

Other recipients included Jessica Jones star Krysten Ritter as Best Actress, the website Cracked as Best Website and #BlackLivesMatter as Social Movement of the Year. The whole affair was hosted by comedian and actor Nick Offerman.
