The Office Star To Host Webby Awards

The Office‘s B.J. Novak will host next month’s New York City-based Webby Awards, show officials told Monday in a written statement.

The show honors the year’s best Web sites, ads and mobile sites, as well as special achievement honorees such as lifetime achievement, artist of the year, person of the year and best actress.

One of Novak’s tasks: to ensure all of the winners stick to the show’s unique speech format, which calls for all acceptance speeches to be limited to five words.

The show will be held June 14; guest celebrity judges at the competition include David Bowie, Arianna Huffington and Martha Stewart.
