Pop star Miley Cyrus and music producers Swizz Beatz and Timbaland are among this year's Webby Award winners.

Cyrus won the Webby Special Achievement Award for the creation of her Instagram Live show, "Bright Minded: Live with Miley."

Swizz Beatz and Timbaland won the 2020 Crush the Internet Award for @verzuztv, a platform that celebrates artists, legendary songwriters and producers. These events attracted as many as 750,000 viewers.

Former First Lady Michelle Obama presented the Webby Artist of the Year Award to D-Nice for "Club Quarantine."

Presenting the award, Obama said D-Nice has created a space where folks can come together from living rooms and basements all over the world to let off some steam, dance it out, and just enjoy each other's company.

This year's show, dubbed "WFH: Webbys From Home," was dedicated to honoring the outstanding individuals and organizations who are using the Internet in response to the incredible difficulties imposed by the coronavirus pandemic.
