THE 74th ANNUAL PEABODY AWARDS
June 21, 2015  | By David Bianculli

Pivot, 9:00 p.m. ET

 
This prestigious awards ceremony, taped last month, is televised this year, and there’s a reason to seek out the Pivot network to find it. The shows awarded here really are the cream of the crop, and winners this year include Amy Schumer (who accepts her award for Inside Amy Schumer from Tina Fey, in quite memorable fashion), John Oliver (for Last Week Tonight with John Oliver), The Americans, Fargo, and the first Peabody ever given to a podcast (for Serial). Fred Armisen hosts – and some of the most powerful moments come from the various winners in the documentary category. I was there at the ceremony, and some acceptance speeches were truly inspiring.
