Christa Carlyle must be thrilled. The Peabody Awards have announced the recipients of their 2018 entertainment honors, and among the nine honorees stands a comedic gem: American Vandal. That’s right, folks — a mockumentary chronicling the pursuit of phallic-related high-school justice will be standing amid the likes of The Handmaid’s Tale and Last Week Tonight at the ceremony, as the Peabody committee has deemed the series a “surprisingly insightful rumination on contemporary life” that seamlessly blends ethical questions of the true-crime genre with the social-media age. The Peabodys are recognizing nine shows in total this year, with the rest of them being A Series of Unfortunate Events, Better Call Saul, Insecure, Saturday Night Live, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, and Hasan Minhaj: Homecoming King. But do any of them answer who drew the dicks?
