Angela to host The Gracie Awards

Alliance for Women in Media Foundation (AWMF) is pleased to announce Angela Kinsey, of the Emmy® Award‐winning show The Office, will serve as Host of the 37th Annual Gracie Awards Gala on May 22, 2012 at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. The Gracie Awards (also known as “the Gracies”) recognize exemplary programming created for women, by women, and about women in all facets of media, including radio, television, cable and digital media. The awards program also encourages the realistic and multifaceted portrayal of women in entertainment, news, features and other programs.

“We are delighted that Angela Kinsey will be hosting the 2012 Gracies,” said AWMF Chair Valerie K. Blackburn. “As we see each week on The Office, Angela is a very talented and funny actress. With Angela as the host, this year’s Gracies promises to be an exciting and dynamic event.”

“I’m very excited and honored to be part of the 2012 Gracie Awards and look forward to celebrating women in our industry,” said Kinsey.

Angela Kinsey portrays the feisty, tightly‐wound head of accounting “Angela Martin” at Dunder Mifflin on NBC’s Emmy winning show The Office. As a struggling actress, Kinsey worked as an operator for 1‐800‐Dentist, and often draws upon her days in corporate America for her scenes in The Office. Along with her many television and film credits, Angela can be seen in the upcoming film “Struck By Lightning” opposite Chris Colfer and is currently shooting “Hot Bot” with the Polish Brothers in Utah.

“The Alliance for Women in Media Foundation is thrilled to welcome Angela as the host of the Gracies,” said AWMF President Erin M. Fuller, CAE. “With her success in television and film, as well as her use of digital media to engage her audience, Angela is an inspiring role model for all women in media.”

The Gracies are presented by the Alliance for Women in Media Foundation, the philanthropic arm of the Alliance for Women in Media that supports educational programs, charitable activities, public service campaigns and scholarships to benefit the public, the electronic media and allied fields. The Gracie Awards, established in 1975, honors programming and individuals of the highest caliber in all facets of radio, television, cable and digital media, including news, drama, comedy, commercials, public service, documentary and sports. – Source
