Peabody Award Winners Full List Includes “Small Axe,” “Unorthodox,” “I May Destroy You,” and the Great Judy Woodruff


The full Peabody Awards list is here, with special awards for PBS’s Judy Woodruff and filmmaker Sam Pollard (“MLK”).

In News, many awards for PBS, and one for ABC News for their Breonna Taylor special. Nothing for NBC or CBS. I’m surprised “60 Minutes” didn’t get anything, they had a lot of important reports.

I’m thrilled for Steve McQueen with “Small Axe.” What an achievement! “Mangold” could have been a standalone Best Picture nominee.
