The Gracie Awards are awards presented by the Alliance for Women in Media Foundation (AWM) in America, to celebrate and honor programming created for women, by women, and about women, as well as individuals who have made exemplary contributions in electronic media and affiliates. Presented annually, the Gracie Awards recognize national, local, and student works. 
The Gracie Awards ceremony is presented by the Alliance for Women in Media Foundation (AWM), since 1975. The awards are named after radio and television star Gracie Allen. Gracie was a successful comedian, entertainer, entrepreneur and activist. As half of the Burns and Allen act, with husband George Burns, one of the most prominent comedy teams in American history, Gracie has been a role model for women in media and entertainment.
Deadline Hollywood describes the awards as follows:
The Gracies recognize exemplary programming created by, for, and about women in radio, television, cable, and interactive media. Honorees are selected in national, local, and student markets, including both commercial and non-commercial outlets.
The Gracie Awards are held on two days, a gala, and a luncheon. The Gracie Awards Gala is a black tie evening affair and awards individuals in the national and mainstream arena. The Gracie Awards Gala has been regularly held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles, California. The Gracie Awards Luncheon, a more casual affair, honors local, public, online, and student works and has been held in New York.
The 2019 ceremony took place on May 21, with the "local and student award winners," honored on June 26.
These were the categories as of the 2014 ceremony.
