O.T. Steven Colbert has won another Peabody Prize

Steven Colbert has won another Peabody Prize.

The winners of the George Foster Peabody Awards were announced Wednesday morning. As explained on the Peabody site, each winner must receive a unanimous vote from the entire board. And as you can see from the list below, entertainment programs are just one of the categories that the Peabody board considers. I think the fact that more than a dozen people with disparate tastes and interests found all these programs worthy of commendation speaks to the extraordinary quality of all 38 winners.

Peabody writeup: Launching his own SuperPAC as a satirical protest against megabucks politics, Colbert mixed cerebral comedy with inspired sight gags, interviews and preposterously funny monologues. Mo comments: "The Colbert Report" wins a Peabody Award for several 2011 episodes that focus on the creation of his Colbert SuperPAC, a vehicle he has used to wittily and yet thoroughly expose the darker and scarier corners of campaign finance. If nothing else, winning a second Peabody will allow Colbert to once again celebrate the "Turducken of awards."
