Binge Marathon Sundays 5/4c
The University of Georgia’s Grady College of Journalism and Mass Communications announced today that Breaking Bad has been selected to receive a Peabody Award. This year’s eclectic list of 36 recipients, ranging from ABC’s Lost to the Beijing Olympics Opening Ceremony, represents what the University calls “the best in electronic media.”
“Bleak, harrowing, sometimes improbably funny,” the presenters said of Vince Gilligan’s “thorny” AMC drama, “the series chronicled the consequences of a mild-mannered, dying science teacher’s decision to secure his family’s future by cooking methamphetamine.”
The award will be presented at a ceremony in New York City’s Waldorf-Astoria Hotel on May 18.
