It's time to officially recognize Kim Kardashian for her contributions to the Internet.

The 2016 Webby Awards announced Wednesday morning that the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star will accept the inaugural Break the Internet Award at the annual show May 16.

According to a press release, the award is "in recognition of her unprecedented success online and the bold and creative ways she has used the Internet, social media, apps and video to connect with a truly global audience."

In just the past year alone, Kim has expanded her Internet presence with her game Kim Kardashian: Hollywood. And we can't forget about her social media presence that includes a whopping 69.6 million followers on Instagram alone.

Whether sharing new pictures of her children North West and Saint West, or revealing almost everything in a selfie, fans never know what to expect week after week.

As for her Twitter account, that's not too bad either. More than 45 million users follow the businesswoman who often pushes fans to her personal Snapchat, website and app.

Tech legend and Re/code founder Kara Swisher is expected to present the Webby to Kim later in the month.

While the reality star deserves plenty of credit, Kim isn't the only famous face set to receive a Webby this year. Girls star Lena Dunham and Jenni Konner will be honored for their new site Lenny Letters. In addition, Kanye West, Jessica Alba and The Onion will be recognized for their contributions to the web.

Fans across the country will be able to view the awards on demand at and on Xfinity's X1 platform the week of May 16.

New episodes of Keeping Up With the Kardashians air Sunday nights at 9 p.m. only on E!
