The Peabody Awards has revealed its 2024 winners, with Bluey, The Bear, The Last of Us and Fellow Travelers among the high-profile projects set to receive awards.

Other noteworthy winners among the 34 award recipients are Judy Blume Forever, 20 Days in Mariupol, All the Beauty and The Bloodshed, Bobi Wine: The People’s President, Dead Ringers, Jury Duty, Reality and Somebody Somewhere.

Last Week Tonight was also honored with its third Peabody award, while Reservation Dogs won its second Peabody.

Winners were selected by an unanimous vote of 32 jurors from 1,100 entries across TV, radio/podcasts and the web/digital in entertainment, news, documentary, arts, children’s/youth, public service and interactive programming.

HBO | Max leads this year’s winners with seven awards, followed by PBS with 5, Amazon MGM Studios with 3 and The Washington Post and FX with two apiece.

Peabody is also honoring Star Trek with its Institutional Award and Witness, the international rights group that helps people worldwide by using video and digital technology to protect and defend human rights, with its first Global Impact Award, the organization announced Thursday.

“Whether courageously documenting wars across the globe or cleverly bringing much needed smiles to our faces, the winners of the 84th Peabody Awards each crafted compelling and imaginative stories,” said Peabody executive director Jeffrey Jones. “Spanning a wide range of mediums and genres, they delivered enthralling projects that are worthy of our highest recognition.”

The 84th annual Peabody Awards winners will be celebrated at a June 9 awards show in Los Angeles hosted by Kumail Nanjiani.

“Through his emotionally powerful and culturally relevant writing and acting, Kumail has established himself as one of the most impactful comedic storytellers working today,” Jones said. “Kumail never fails to make us laugh, and we are so thrilled he will host our first ever awards ceremony in LA and our first awards ceremony in five years!”

A full list of the 2024 Peabody Award winners, presented in alphabetical order within each category and with commentary from the organization, follows.


Jury Duty (Amazon Freevee)
When Ronald Gladden showed up for jury duty, he was told the entire process was being filmed for a documentary. To watch all eight episodes of Jury Duty, which was, it turns out, a wholly fabricated improv-fueled hoax where only Gladden was none the wiser, is to witness the trappings of reality TV and prank shows being upended to show that serving one’s community, in ways big and small, is a humble but necessary goal.

The Last of Us (HBO | Max)
This post-apocalyptic drama created by Craig Mazin and Neil Druckmann for HBO, is a faithful video game adaptation set 20 years into a pandemic caused by a fungal infection that turns its victims into zombie-like creatures. The story follows Joel (Pedro Pascal), a smuggler who must safely transport Ellie (Bella Ramsey), an immune girl, across the collapsed United States.
