University of Georgia’s prestigious Peabody Awards announced its winners today, which included Atlanta-based TNT’s ‘Men of a Certain Age,’ FX’s “Justified” and CBS’s “The Good Wife.”
HBO’s miniseries “The Pacific” and Canadian teen drama “Degrassi” got some love, as did CNN’s Gulf Spill coverage.
The Peabodys, as noted by the organization, “are considered among the most prestigious and selective prizes in electronic media. The Peabody Awards recognize excellence and meritorious work by radio and television stations, networks, webcasters, producing organizations and individuals. The 16-member Peabody Board is a distinguished panel of television critics, industry practitioners and experts in culture and the arts. Selection is made by the board following review by special screening committees of UGA faculty, students and staff.”
Oddly, “Jersey Shore” was absent.
Here is the entire list of winners:
