The Gracie Awards recognize exemplary programming created by women, for women and about women in all facets of media and entertainment. They also acknowledge the individuals who have made inspirational contributions to the industry.

Named after the late Gracie Allen, the Gracie Awards acknowledge outstanding team leadership and individual achievement. The Gracies focus on women who are making positive change and who further the discussion of what a fulfilling career in media looks like.

The Kelly Clarkson Show is included among the honorees. The American Idol OG winner and The Voice coach acknowledged the honor on social media. Kelly Clarkson and her show are also up for several Daytime Emmys.

Also worth noting, America’s Got Talent auditioner, Gina Brillon is also an honoree for her Amazon Prime comedy special, The Floor Is Lava. The Bronx-born comedian’s audition aired last week.

“I’m so thankful for the new fans here!” Gina wrote on Instagram. “My Gracie Award winning special Gina Brillon: The Floor is Lava (humble brag #TheGracies – own your worth people!) is now available on more platforms! Still FREE for @PrimeVideo subscribers and for a fee on: Apple TV, Comcast, YouTube, Vimeo and more!”

Winners will be celebrated September 27 at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel in Los Angeles. See the full list of honorees at Deadline.
