Congratulations are in order for actress, Cicely Tyson.

This year’s Peabody career achievement award has been given to Tyson for her efforts in transforming the entertainment industry and being a foundational figure through her performances.

Oprah Winfrey and Viola Davis honored the actress with this achievement.

Tyson has appeared in many television programs and series. This includes Roots, The Autobiography of Miss Jane Pittman, The Trip to Bountiful, House of Cards, and much more!

Total, she’s received three Emmys, a Tony, a Kennedy Center Honor, and an honorary Oscar.

Due to our current pandemic, the Peabody Awards was canceled.

Tyson was instead honored with a video tribute featuring messages from Oprah Winfrey, Katie Couric, Viola Davis, and Regina King.

Congratulations once again Cicely Tyson.
