NEHA JOY: Kerry Washington, Catherine O'Hara, Lena Waithe, and Kelly Clarkson are among the women who are set to be honored at this year's Gracie Awards. The event, which is set to take place September 27th in Los Angeles, is hosted by the Alliance for Women in Media Foundation, which annually honors women working in television, radio, and digital media, along with entertainment and news programs created by women that address timely topics and social issues.

Other 2021 honorees will include Hillary Rodham Clinton, DeDe McGuire, Danielle Monaro, and Erin Andrews. In addition, honors will be handed out to NBC'S "Today," CBS This Morning's "Breonna Taylor: Her Life, Death, and Legacy," ABC'S "Black-ish," FX Network's "Mrs. America," and Disney+'s Taylor Swift documentary "Folklore: the Long Pond Studio Sessions."

Becky Brooks, president of the Alliance for Women in Media Foundation, which is celebrating its 70th anniversary this year, spoke out about its 2021 event saying, "As we celebrate AWM's 70th anniversary, we are thrilled to honor this incredible group of women who have demonstrated their commitment to sharing emotionally charged, timely, and compelling content. We look forward to reconvening in person to recognize these incredible achievements and brave storytelling."

Honorees are selected in national, local, and student markets. Local and student award winners will be recognized virtually in lieu of the Gracie Awards Luncheon, which will no longer take place in person on June 26th in New York City. An alternate in-person celebration is currently being evaluated. To view the complete list of award recipients and honorable mentions, visit allwomeninmedia.org.
