Carol Burnett Honored With Lifetime Achievement Award at 49th Annual Gracie Awards

Television legend Carol Burnett was awarded the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Alliance for Women in Media Foundation at the 49th annual Gracie Awards.

The theme for this year’s award ceremony was centered on “Feminine Strength, both Large and Small,” and the trailblazing Burnett was bestowed with the honor. She was presented with the award by her castmate of TV series Palm Royale, Kristen Wiig.

“I was unfortunately — believe it or not — too young to have met the legendary Gracie Allen, who is the inspiration for these awards, but I think we might have had a lot in common and her iconic work as an artist paved the way for all the women who came after her, including me,” Burnett said while accepting the honor.

“Personally, it is surreal for me to be here, to even know you… because you have been such an inspiration,” Wiig told the television legend while presenting the award.

The 2024 Gracie Awards were hosted by Tamera Mowry-Housley and were held at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel in Beverly Hills.
