The American Women in Radio & Television has announced their 35th annual Gracie Awards.

NBC cleaned up – even with its prison lock-up show.

“NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams”:Outstanding Hard News Feature on “Unlikely Refugees.”
MTP: “Outstanding Interview Program or Feature”
Andrea Mitchell: “Outstanding Reporter/Correspondent” award.
Melissa Lee: “Individual Achievement” as an “Outstanding Host.”
MSNBC’s “Lockup”: Outstanding Series

National award winners will be presented at a black-tie gala at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles, CA on May 25.The event benefits the Foundation of American Women in Radio & Television, a charitable non-profit.

It’s hard to forget that NBC segment (as shown above) from the Republican National Convention in Minneapolis/St. Paul when Mitchell gracefully pulled off an interview while she nearly got swallowed up by the balloons.

> Update: NPR reeled in three Gracie Awards. They include the documentary series “The Science of Spirituality” from religion correspondent Barbara Bradley Hagerty; a two-part report from Kabul correspondent Soraya Sarhaddi Nelson on wide-spread drug addiction in Afghanistan; and the Culturetopia podcast, hosted by arts reporter Neda Ulaby and blogger Linda Holmes.
