NEW YORK (AP) — Lisa Kudrow will host the 15th annual Webby Awards.

Kudrow will oversee the June 13 ceremony at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City. One of her duties is to ensure that award winners stick to Webby protocol by limiting their acceptance speeches to just five words.

Kudrow is also a winner herself. Recipients were earlier announced by the Webbys, which honor Internet achievement.

She won the Webby for best individual performance in an online video for her performance in her series "Web Therapy." The show also won the award for best long-form comedy for the second year in a row.

Kudrow, whose credits include "Friends" and "The Comeback," is prepping "Web Therapy" for a TV adaptation, to debut on Showtime in July.
