The Simpsons and Frontline were each honored with The Peabody's prestigious Institutional Award. The Simpsons was the first animated series to be honored with a Peabody Award back in 1997. Other Peabody winners include Surviving R. Kelly, Apollo 11, Unbelievable, Stranger Things 3, Dickinson, David Makes Man and Chernobyl. “This year’s winners are a vibrant collective of inspiring, innovative, and powerful stories. True to the spirit and legacy of Peabody, our winners are also distinguished by the presence and resilience of many emerging and diverse voices,” said Peabodys executive director Jeffrey P. Jones in a statement. “We are especially proud to celebrate Frontline as an unwavering source for truth through quality journalism when both are actively under attack, and ‘The Simpsons,’ one of the most consistently funny and culturally important satirical sitcoms over the last three decades.” ALSO: Watch Damon Lindelof and Regina King's remote Peabody acceptance speeches for Watchmen.
