Edgar Bergen and NBC Radio for Outstanding Entertainment in Drama




Edgar Bergen and NBC Radio for Outstanding Entertainment in Drama
 1945 | NBC Radio

Working within a formula sanctioned by long usage and great popularity, Edgar Bergen has brought to the air a mimicry, an original wit, and a power of characterization which are refreshing. To him and his incomparable but underpaid assistants, Charley McCarthy and Mortimer Snerd, a Peabody Award for many laughs.
