Peabody Awards winners: Beyonce’s ‘Lemonade,’ ‘Veep,’ ‘Atlanta,’ ‘National Treasure’ …

For the second year in a row, the Peabody Awards announced the 60 finalists from news, documentaries, entertainment, children’s programming, educational programming and public service. The 30 champs are being revealed in a series of news releases. Joining the previously announced two individual and dozen documentary winners are seven entertainment programs.

Leading off this list are HBO’s reigning Emmy champ “Veep” and Grammy victor “Lemonade,” FX’s Golden Globe winner “Atlanta” and Hulu’s BAFTA contender “National Treasure.” Both HBO and FX can boast of two wins apiece while Hulu earned bragging rights by bagging it first Peabody for this acquisition from Channel 4 in the UK (see below for full list of winners and nominees.)
