41st Gracie Awards To Recognize Tina Fey, Angela Bassett & More

41st gracie awardsOn Tuesday, May 24th, the 41st annual Gracie Awards will recognize esteemed honorees such as as Tina Fey, Angela Bassett, Cynthia Nixon, Jada Pinkett Smith, Kathie Lee Gifford, along with some of the most talented women behind the camera.

Following in June, local market, public and student award winners will be recognized at the Gracies Awards Luncheon on June 21 at Cipriani in New York, New York.

This year, the Alliance For Women In Media (AWMF) is taking a fresh approach to the Gracie Awards show programming by naming Vicangelo Bulluck as Executive Producer. Bulluck’s extensive portfolio includes opening the Hollywood Bureau office of the national NAACP and was its first executive director.

Kristen Welch, Alliance for Women in Media Foundation Chair, and SVP, Global Content Operations at Discovery Communications said, "The AWMF, through the Gracie Awards, is honored to recognize the collective, powerful voices of women from across the media landscape.  Their influence and inspiration on and off the camera, encourages our future generations to build on the foundation and opportunities created by the great women before them."

The evening will spotlight prolific women in the industry who continue to lay the groundwork, break down barriers and lead by example in creating equal opportunity for future generations.
