The Peabody Awards

Actor’s Studio (ABC)




Actor’s Studio
Winner 1948 | ABC Television

An Award was presented for the first time at this luncheon to a television program—Actor’s Studio—for its “uninhibited and brilliant pioneering in the field of televised drama.” This program, guided by John Steinbeck, Elia Kazan, and Cheryl Crawford, and produced by Don Davis, has, according to the citation, presented one-act plays, short stories and sketches whose acting, direction, lighting and production show the highest degree of skill and resourcefulness. In the opinion of the judges, Actor’s Studio is the first to recognize that drama on television is neither a stage play nor a movie, but a separate and distinct new art form.
