The 70th Annual Peabody Award winners were announced today with a few surprise victories thrown into the mix. On the television side,”Men Of A Certain Age,” “The Good Wife,” Justified,” and The Pacific“ took home prizes. I guess the surprise here is that “Degrassi – ‘My Body Is A Cage’” walked away with honors. Which is a shock. If the ‘I’m So Excited’ episode of “Saved by the Bell” got the snub, then this should too.
