Four decades of recognizing achievements by women across all media
“Women have and continue to struggle to climb from the bottom of the ladder, but it is with the utmost determination that we reach for that next rung no matter how difficult the challenge.”
– Ms. Cicely Tyson, accepting a Lifetime Achievement Award at the 2015 Gracies.
The Gracie Awards were established in 1975, with 2023 marking the 48th anniversary. The Gracies are celebrated with an evening event, the Gracies Gala, on the West Coast and the Gracies Luncheon on the East Coast. These star-studded events include the visionary women who have spearheaded media progress and those who are the setting the path for the future.
Plan now to celebrate the 49th Annual Gracie Awards! National winners will be honored at the Gracies Gala May 21, 2024 at the Beverly Wilshire (A Four Seasons Hotel) in Beverly Hills. Local and student winners will be honored at the Gracies Luncheon June 18, 2024 at Cipriani 42nd in New York.2023 Gracie Award Winners Support the Gracies Past Gracies Footage
“I love being in a room with such brilliant minds and brilliant creativity. There’s a lot of interesting things that happen in this room. Just the conversations that are happening at the tables. It’s a really cool place to be. If you ever get a change to come, you should attend the Gracies.”

Presenter, 47th Annual Gracie Awards Gala
“If she were alive today [Gracie Allen], I think she’d be extremely proud of the women in this room; to know that we, too, stand in our own truths, do the work we love and, hopefully, will leave the industry, and the world, a little better off than when we found it.”
– Kristen Johnston, reminding 2015 Gracie Gala attendees why Gracie Allen was truly an inspiration.
