April 13 (UPI) -- The Peabody Awards board of jurors has announced the nominations for the 2022 Peabody Awards.

The winners of the 82nd annual Peabody Awards will be named during a virtual celebration June 6-9 that will be available on the Peabody official YouTube channel and social media pages.


The Peabody Awards recognize compelling and empowering stories released in broadcasting and streaming media, including TV, podcasts and radio, and documentaries.

PBS leads this year's nominees with 13 nominations, followed by HBO with eight. Hulu and Netflix have five nominations each, while The New York Times and NBC both have four.

Nominations include the Hulu series Dopesick starring Michael Keaton, the Showtime drama Yellowjackets with Melanie Lynskey and the Hulu mystery-comedy Only Murders in the Building starring Steve Martin, Martin Short and Selena Gomez.


"Following yet another turbulent year, Peabody is proud to honor an array of stories that poignantly and powerfully help us make sense of the challenges we face as a nation and world," Peabody executive producer Jeffrey Jones said.
