Justified, Good Wife Among Peabody Winners

Winners of the 70th Annual Peabody Awards, which acknowledge “excellence in electronic media,” were announced Thursday by the University of Georgia Grady College of Journalism and Mass Communication.

TV’s honorees included FX’s Justified, CBS’ The Good Wife (a repeat winner), TNT’s Men of a Certain Age and the Degrassi two-parter “My Body Is a Cage,” which revolved around a transgender teen.

Also earning a Peabody this year were HBO’s The Pacific miniseries and its original movie Temple Grandin; the PBS Independent Lens documentary Reel Injun: On the Trail of the Hollywood Indian; and the BBC’s Sherlock: A Study in Pink.

A complete list of winners from TV, radio and film can be found here.

    BBC’s Sherlock is brilliant. Anyone who hasn’t watched it should rent it ASAP. I was so thrilled when they showed it on PBS.

      I know I also saw it on GPB (Georgia’s Public Broadcasting Station). I was so shocked to see a young Sherlock with such a potty mouth on him.
