The Webby Awards is thrilled to honor Adam Sandler with a Webby Special Achievement Award for his stellar performances across his multiple hit Netflix original films, including The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Second), The Week Of, The Ridiculous Six, Sandy Wexler, and The Do-Over.
With this impressive roster of recent films and roles, Sandler has demonstrated incredible range—from playing Danny, the disheveled yet lovable son of a New York sculptor in The Meyerowitz Stories, to his most recent role as Kenny, the sweet and hilarious dad in The Week Of, and beyond. What’s more, by working with Netflix on multiple film releases over just a couple of years, Sandler has drawn massive attention to the streaming giant as the next great frontier for creating and releasing interesting and complex new work. Sandler’s stellar performances across all of these films truly demonstrate the power of streaming platforms to bring us his unique storytelling.
For his incredible performances and for helping elevate the caliber of cinematic work available on streaming platforms, it is our great pleasure to honor Adam Sandler with a Webby Special Achievement Award.
Special Achievement honors those whose work has improved upon the experience and capabilities of the Internet in novel and impactful ways.
