The Alliance for Women in Media Foundation (AWMF) has announced winners of the 49th Annual Gracie Awards. The Gracies celebrate outstanding achievements in media dedicated to women, by women, and about women across diverse platforms in news and entertainment. This year's winners will be celebrated at AWMF's annual gala on May 21 at the Beverly Wilshire in Los Angeles. Local and student award recipients will be honored at the Gracie Awards Luncheon on June 18 at Cipriani's in NYC.

This year's content themes are centered on "Feminine Strength, both Large and Small," highlighting impactful actions resonating on various scales, as exemplified in acclaimed productions like Yellowjackets, Queen Charlotte: A Bridgerton Story, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, and We Can Do Hard Things.

Among the winners are influential figures such as Michelle Obama, Glennon Doyle, Gayle King, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Nicole Kidman, Angela Yee, Rachel Brosnahan, Maria Shriver, The Kelly Clarkson Show, TODAY Show, and more.

The Grand Award will be presented to the Cancer Straight Talk Podcast From MSK. While all Gracie Awards celebrate excellence, the Grand Award signifies a distinct level of achievement, acknowledging the extraordinary talent, dedication, and production involved in creating these exceptional pieces.

AWMF President Becky Brooks said, "As Women's History Month draws to a close, we honor the remarkable women storytellers whose courage and resilience continue to inspire us. Their stories, strengths, and influence are actively shaping our present and future. The impact of women is undeniable, and we look forward to celebrating these powerful contributions and achievements at the upcoming Gracie Awards."
