The Alliance for Women in Media Foundation today announced the winners of the 47th Annual Gracie Awards, honoring exemplary programming created by, for and about women in radio, television, cable and interactive media.

Elle Fanning (The Great), Kaitlyn Dever (Dopesick), Melanie Lynskey (Yellowjackets), Melissa McCarthy (Nine Perfect Strangers) and Tamron Hall (Tamron Hall) were among the individual winners, with shows including Maid (Warner Bros. Television) and Pose (FX) also garnering recognition. The latter, which wrapped in June of last year, earned two awards, including the Drama Grand Prize and Ensemble Cast.

The Gracie Awards will take place in-person this year, after going virtual for two years due to the Covid 19 pandemic—taking place at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel in Los Angeles on May 24. The ceremony will also recognize entertainment and news programming that highlighted female-driven stories and culturally relevant topics, including 48 Hours, 60 Minutes, NBC Nightly News and The New York Times Presents.

“Throughout this past year we have seen a number of remarkable projects by and about inspirational women,” said Becky Brooks, who serves as President of the Alliance for Women in Media Foundation. “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 full list of 2022 winners can be found below.
