2013 Peabody Winners Announced: “Girls,” “Game Change,” “Doctor Who” Nab Plum Honors

The 26-year-old's hit HBO show is among this year's recipients of the prestigious media award, organizers announced Wednesday.

Robin Roberts also scored some well-deserved kudos: "Robin's Journey," a public-service campaign that began as a special "20/20" episode chronicling the "Good Morning America" anchor's battle with myelodysplastic syndrome and her subsequent bone-marrow transplant, also made the cut.

And lest you think that the Peabodys turn a blind eye to the nerd herd, fanboys will be happy to learn that British sci-fi cult fave "Doctor Who" will be honored with an Institutional Peabody.

The 39 awards will be handed out on May 20 at a luncheon at New York City's Waldorf-Astoria Hotel hosted by CBS Evening News anchor Scott Pelley.
