South Park Creators Collect Peabody Award

Controversial animated TV show SOUTH PARK was honoured with a prestigious Peabody Award yesterday (05JUN06) in recognition of its work promoting tolerance in the US. The Comedy Central programme, created by MATT STONE and TREY PARKER, is uncompromising in its satirical approach and has prompted heated reactions from MEL GIBSON, TOM CRUISE, the Catholic Church and, most recently, ISAAC HAYES, who quit his role as Chef following an episode which mocked his Scientology beliefs. JON STEWART, who hosted the awards ceremony at New York City's Waldorf Astoria hotel, said he was amazed by Stone and Parker's "ability to keep the show fresh and hilarious" after nearly 10 years on the air. MARTIN SCORSESE was honoured for his documentary BOB DYLAN: NO DIRECTION HOME, and THE SHILED and BOSTON LEGAL also picked up awards.
