Adam Sandler and David Harbour will be honored with Special Achievement Awards at the 22nd annual Webby Awards which will take place on May 14 at Cipriani Wall Street in New York.
The Webby Awards made the announcement Wednesday that Sandler and Harbour will be recognized for their contributions to Internet culture.
Sandler has been cranking out Netflix originals in the past couple of years including “The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Second),” “The Week Of,” “The Ridiculous Six,” “Sandy Wexler” and “The Do-Over.” He will be honored with a Special Achievement Award for his role in bringing more recognition to the power, popularity and profitability of streaming platforms.
Harbour, who stars as the charmingly gruff Sheriff Hopper in the sci-fi cultural phenomenon “Stranger Things,” will be honored with the Webby Special Achievement for Best Actor and for skillfully using social media to engage fans and spread positivity on the Internet.
Sandler and Harbour join previously announced notable Special Achievement honorees and winners, including #MeToo trailblazer Susan Fowler, actress Laura Linney, actor Jesse Williams, artist FKA twigs, Mozilla Executive Chairwoman Mitchell Baker, Ugly Delicious creator David Chang, director Steven Soderbergh, NFL player Chris Long and the former President of Mexico Vicente Fox.
The Webby Awards will be hosted by comedian Amber Ruffin and will be available to watch on demand on May 15 exclusively at webbyawards.com.
