In a strapless red dress, Quinta commanded attention, leaving her décolletage bare and accentuating her look with dangling diamond earrings for a touch of sparkle.

Rebecca showcased a leggy display in her stunning white dress with a high slit, accessorized with a gold metallic clutch.

The Hollywood beauties led a cavalcade of stars at the glitzy event, including Rose Byrne, Shailene Woodley, Patrick Stewart, Matt Bomer, Mel Brooks and more.

The event marked Peabody’s first in-person ceremony since 2019 and the first time ever in its 84-year history that the Awards took place in Los Angeles.

‘For the first time in the history of Peabody, we’re thrilled to recognize the most compelling stories of the year at a joyful and inspiring ceremony in Los Angeles,’ Jeffrey Jones, executive director of Peabody, said in a statement.

‘By including more talent and honoring the winners in a city that deeply admires the power of stories, we are confident that we will add some tangible excitement to our ceremony.’

The Peabody is highly esteemed for its integrity and renowned for its standards of excellence, making it a unique honor in television, podcast/radio, and immersive and interactive media. 

Each year, the Peabody Awards are selected by a diverse Board of Jurors through a unanimous vote, recognizing excellence in entertainment, documentary, news, podcast/radio, arts, children’s and youth, and public service programming. 

The winners highlight stories that address pressing social issues and showcase vibrant, emerging voices. 

Founded in 1940 at the University of Georgia’s Grady College of Journalism and Mass Communication, the Peabody Awards continue to be based in Athens, Georgia. 

Quinta took home the Trailblazer Award for ‘demonstrating the ways that television can make a difference in real lives while entertaining millions’.

Following her success with the sitcom Abbott Elementary, Brunson has leveraged her newfound influence to make a real-world impact. 

She partnered with Box Tops for Education on a campaign to honor teachers and donated $20,000 to her former middle school. 

Hosting Saturday Night Live, a major achievement for any performer, she dedicated her monologue to advocating for higher teacher salaries. 

Earlier this year, Quinta teased ‘major changes’ in the new season of Abbot Elementary. 

The award-winning star told Good Morning America, ‘Season three is so exciting to me,’ but revealed that due to the recent WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes, the season was ‘shortened’ to only 14 episodes.

‘I really wanted to make sure every single one was packed with a punch, because we only have so much time with our audience.’ 

‘But it naturally forced the writers and the cast, who want to put on incredible performances for each episode,’ Quinta added. 

‘I think there are some major changes this season that were always gonna be there for the third season, but because we had this shortened episode count, it was even more important for me to give audiences something exciting to come back to.’

While also on GMA, Quinta talked about her recent Emmy win for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series. 

She notably made history by ‘being the first black woman to win in over 40 years for best actress in a comedy series.’ 

‘I didn’t know that until after the fact. I was just emotional at winning, of course,’ she revealed, adding that after she went backstage, ‘That information was given to me and that made me emotional all over again.’ 

 The series also stars Tyler James Williams, Janelle James, Lisa Ann Walter, Chris Perfetti, William Stanford Davis and Sheryl – who previously won an Emmy for her role in the show. 

After Quinta’s Emmy win, she recalled that Sheryl Lee Ralph told her that, ‘She always knew that this would be case. That she was just proud of me, which is important to me as a writer and creator…’ 

She later expressed, ‘It’s also wonderful that the cast and people like Sheryl recognize the show overall. And I really felt like that night felt like a win for the entire cast and crew.’ 

Quinta recently caught a show on Broadway called Merrily We Roll Along – which stars her close friend and Harry Potter alum, Daniel Radcliffe.

During an interview with Entertainment Weekly, the writer revealed her desire to have Daniel on Abbott Elementary to portray the son of Mr. Johnson – played by William Stanford Davis. 

‘I love Daniel Radcliffe. He’s a very good, sweet guy, and a friend of mine. For some reason in the [writer’s] room we were like, “What if Daniel Radcliffe was Mr. Johnson’s son?”‘ 

‘And there’s no rhyme or reason. It’s so dumb. And not like Daniel Radcliffe as somebody, like, Daniel Radcliffe [himself] is Mr. Johnson’s son,’ she explained. 

Brunson and Radcliffe are no strangers to working together, and starred alongside each other in Weird: The Al Yankovic Story (2022) as well as the show called Miracle Workers.
