“American Masters” Garners Peabody Award Nomination & NEH Grant

It’s been a good week for American Masters.

First, last year’s documentary Maya Angelou: And Still I Rise unanimously received a Peabody Award nomination. Out of the 60 total nominees, there will be 30 Peabody Awards bestowed. The winners will be revealed in a series of announcements, based on category, beginning next week; the Documentary category will be announced on Tuesday, April 17.

In addition, American Masters received a National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) grant for the upcoming film, Mae West – I’m No Angel. West was one of the most powerful women of early Hollywood, whose writing and film roles served as a barometer of rapidly changing social mores in 20th-century America.
