The 78th Peabody Awards Board of Jurors announced its latest batch of winners on April 18, including nine Peabody 30 honorees in the Entertainment category.

Fictional murderers had a big year in 2018, with Peabody Awards going to HBO’s darkly comedic hitman-turned-actor series “Barry,” in addition to wins for BBC America’s slinky, serial killer drama “Killing Eve” and FX’s Cold War spy thriller “The Americans.”

Peabody - Award - Win - Americans - Honor

That marks the second Peabody Award win for “The Americans,” which originally scored the honor in 2014, elevating the show to an exclusive echelon of drama series that have been honored by the organization more than once. AMC’s “Breaking Bad” accomplished the achievement most recently, for seasons in 2008 and 2013, respectively, with both “The Sopranos” and “The West Wing” earning back-to-back honors for 1999 and 2000. “Northern Exposure” also won twice, while “Homicide: Life on the Streets” is a three-time winner.
