The 77th Peabody Awards, one of the more prestigious awards to be bestowed in media, just named a few of their winners ahead of the ceremony on May 19th in NYC with host Hasan Minhaj.
As far as comedy is concerned, several comedy series scored a Peabody including:
Hasan Minhaj: Homecoming King
Last Week Tonight with John Oliver
SNL: Political Satire 2017
The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel
On top of that, living and still working comedy legend Carol Burnett will be honored individually with a Peabody Career Achievement Award.
It should be noted that comedy pretty much dominated the entertainment category for the Peabodys this year, probably more so than in any other year in recent memory.
