Back in August, we learned that COSMOS: A SpaceTime Odyssey won an impressive 4 Emmy Awards, including “Outstanding Writing For Nonfiction Programming.”
Today, they received an even more impressive honor: The Peabody Award, celebrating overall excellence in quality. (For those unfamiliar with it, this is one of those awards the winners will mention even in short biographies. It’s a big deal.)
The show was praised for its “dazzling virtual tour of the final frontier and its energetic evangelizing for science.”
An update of Carl Sagan’s famous series for the age of CGI, astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson’s “COSMOS” is not only an educational, eye-popping, near-psychedelic tour of our universe and beyond, it’s a passionate brief on behalf of science itself.
A second season of the show is likely, though it’s not yet confirmed.
