Patton Oswalt is returning to the Webby Awards this May for his third run as host of the annual show — let’s just hope there aren’t any streaming problems come the May 20 air date.

The Webby Awards, which honor achievements on the internet, are in their 18th year. “Patton wins the internet almost every day,” David Michael Davies, executive director of the Webby Awards, said in a statement. “His comedic creativity very much mirrors the ingenuity exhibited by the awards recipients and we feel fortunate to have him hosting again this year.”

Oswalt also hosted the awards in 2012 and 2013, and you can see a clip from the 2013 show below. Visit WebbyAwards.com the morning of May 20 to watch the ceremony on demand.
