Marvel and Netflix’s Luke Cage has been nominated for a Peabody Award in the category of entertainment. The Peabody Awards recognize “most compelling and empowering stories” in the media, such as news, TV, radio, and more. Luke Cage is one of sixty finalists.
Here’s the official entry from the Peabody website.
“Marvel’s Luke Cage” Marvel Television in association with ABC Studios for Netflix (Netflix)
A sabotaged experiment leaves Luke Cage with super strength and unbreakable skin in modern-day Harlem.
The 76th annual Peabody Awards will be hosted by Angie Tribeca star Rashida Jones and will take place on May 20 in New York. PBS will then air the awards show later on in June. Marvel and Netflix shows aren’t strangers to the Peabody Awards, with Jessica Jones taking home an award last year
After a sabotaged experiment leaves him with super strength and unbreakable skin, Luke Cage becomes a fugitive who attempts to rebuild his life in modern day Harlem, New York City. But soon he is pulled out of the shadows and must fight a battle for the heart of his city – forcing him to confront a past he had tried to bury.
Luke Cage stars Mike Colter, Alfre Woodard, Mahershala Ali, Simone Missick, Frank Whaley and Theo Rossi, is currently streaming on Netflix.

Each Season Of The Marvel/Netflix Shows, Ranked
Just like their siblings in the Marvel Cinematic Universe films, Netflix’s The Defenders-verse of streaming superheroes goes from two to three entries a year in 2017. First up is the first season of Iron Fist premiering on Netflix in less than two weeks, on March 17, the first six episodes of which are, I’m sorry to say, not very impressive. Fortunately, Marvel TV and Netflix have two more turns at the plate, with all their heroes joining for the highly-anticipated The Defenders team-up, expected this summer, and, in the fall or winter, with The Punisher spin-off starring Jon Bernthal.
Ahead of this wave of new stories, and just like we did with the MCU movies and Marvel movies overall, I thought it would worth taking a look at what’s worked and what hasn’t in each entry of the Netflix shows. Of course, the ranks are all opinion; I expect the first to be somewhat eyebrow-raising.
I decided to switch it up this time, start with the best this time and work my way down. Click Next to start!
