Melissa McCarthy

The Alliance for Women in Media Foundation has announced the winners of the 47th Annual Gracie Awards, which will return in-person on May 24 at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel in Los Angeles.

The event will honor some of the most talented women in television, radio and digital media, including Melissa McCarthy, Kelly Clarkson, Elle Fanning, Savannah Guthrie and Hoda Kotb, Kaitlyn Dever, Tamron Hall, Ellen K, Angie Martinez, Dana Cortez and more.

The ceremony also will recognize entertainment and news programming that highlighted female-driven stories and culturally relevant topics, including “48 Hours,” “60 Minutes,” “NBC Nightly News,” “The New York Times Presents,” “Pose” and “Maid.”

“Throughout this past year we have seen a number of remarkable projects by and about inspirational women,” said Becky Brooks, President, of the Alliance for Women in Media Foundation, in a statement. “We are honored to shine a spotlight on these women, whose stories have driven cultural awareness, offered entertainment that has made us laugh, cry, and everything in between. This year, we will be returning to the Beverly Wilshire Hotel and are delighted to return to an in-person format so that we can properly celebrate together.”

The Gracies celebrate exemplary talent and programming created by, for and about women in radio, television and digital medias. Honorees are selected in national, local and student markets, including both commercial and non-commercial outlets in entertainment and news.

In the seventh consecutive year, Vicangelo Bulluck, executive producer of the Gracie Awards Gala, will spotlight these prolific women in the industry who continue to inspire and support others, break down barriers, and lead by example in creating opportunity for future generations.
