Personal Award: Imogene Coca

NBC Television

Blessed with an imp-like, contagious, and entirely original humor, Imogene Coca was a welcome visitor in television homes even before the Show of Shows hit the Top Ten. Now, it develops that the stars of Show of Shows mean to go their own way next season. Regardless of the program Miss Coca chooses to grace, her mere presence thereon will assure a high comedy content, impeccable good taste—and a vast and appreciate audience. Which is our way of saying, Miss Coca, that you have won a George Foster Peabody Television Award in the field of entertainment, and with it goes our every good wish for the future.
