Cecily Strong Brought Back Her Sarah Koenig Impression at the Peabody Awards

For its “innovations of form and its compelling, drilling account of how guilt, truth, and reality are decided,” “Serial” became the first-ever podcast to win a Peabody Award this year. At the Peabody awards gala on May 31, presenter Cecily Strong decided to honor the achievement the best way she could: by bringing back her brilliant Sarah Koenig impression from last season’s SNL. You remember that parody — it’s the one where Cecily, who everyone says is such a nice person, a person they couldn’t imagine making fun of anyone, does a brutal imitation of Koenig’s distinctive cadence. The Peabody Awards air on Pivot on June 21.
