    The Peabody Award recipients for entertainment during the 2014 calendar year will be announced live on Good Morning America Thursday, April 16th. Individual/institutional winners will be announced April 14th, news/radio winners on April 20th, and public service, web/interactive, and children’s programming winners on April 23rd. Fred Armisen will be hosting the May 31 ceremony, an edited version of which will air on the Pivot TV network in June.

    I think we’re going to see another cable-heavy year, with likely winners being The Americans, Fargo, and True Detective. I can see Amazon being recognized for Transparent. Last Week Tonight with John Oliver will probably be honored eventually–let’s see if it happens as early as this year.

    What are your predictions?

    I do imagine a lot of cable shows will get in. But it is just as likely we’ll see a show like The Good Wife regconized as well.

    This isn’t a quality assessment or anything, but I’m VERY surprised they didn’t go for “Transparent.” It’s the kind of show they usually go for. I also expected “Olive Kitteridge” to pop up, since they’ve gone for things like “Game Change” and “Temple Grandin” over the past few years.

    Otherwise, this is a really strong slate. Particularly w/ “Rectify” and “Americans” it’s a reminder of some of the best dramas on TV that, sadly, have no chance ats Emmy glory. And i wonder how long this “John Oliver” wave of love will last (not that I’m complaining.

    Congrats to John Oliver. He deserved it for the Edward Snowden interview alone.

    Can’t believe I forgot Rectify. Oops! LOL.

    They’re announcing their winners piecemeal this year–news, documentary, and children’s programming will be announced next week.

    The final set of winners (in the field of documentary, public service, educational, and children’s programming) was announced today. Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey, Virunga, and Adventure Time are some notable recipients.
