The Peabody AwardsThe Peabody Award winners were announced today and they included their usual mix of enlightening documentaries and popular favorites, both of which are equally worthy of recognition.

This year's list didn't have many fictional shows, but the one's they picked more than made up for their absence. ABC's 'Modern Family' and Fox's 'Glee' both picked up awards, the only two sitcoms on the list. HBO's 'No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency' and 'In Treatment' were also the only dramas on the list.

Other notable winners include 'The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson' for his sit-down with Archbishop Desmond Tutu, HBO's documentary 'Thrilla in Manila,' PBS' 'Frontline' for their stirring report on Bernie Madoff and '60 Minutes'' expose on "The Cost of Dying."

GleeDon't stop believing, 'Glee' fans: It seems that critics and awards bodies are every bit as hooked on the show as the rest of us, with the prestigious Peabody Awards the latest in a long line to honor the musical dramedy.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, 'Glee' was one of 36 outstanding series, documentaries, websites and news reports that the distinguished group spotlighted as the best in electronic media for 2009, during a ceremony held at the University of Georgia's Grady College of Journalism and Mass Communication on Mar. 31.

Other Peabody winners included ABC's hilarious sitcom 'Modern Family,' HBO's taut therapy-session drama 'In Treatment,' and 'Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson,' which was described by the board as "a talk show without borders," for its Desmond Tutu edition.

jon stewartJon Stewart is gearing up for hosting duties yet again, this time for the Peabody Awards in New York City on June 5. Stewart, who has won two Peabodys himself for The Daily Show's election coverage, was chosen partly for his "journalistic smarts and comic genius." Well, I'll give them the "comic genius" part, but I still cringe whenever someone refers to The Daily Show as "journalism." Additionally, winners from the 2005 ceremony will be announced via satellite and Web cast on April 5.
