The wonderful Miss Piggy is to receive her first ever award on June 4 at the annual Sackler Center First Awards. The ceremony will be held at Brooklyn Museum, according to Disney Insider.
The Sackler Center First awards recognizes ‘ women who have broken gender barriers and made remarkable contributions in their fields.’ The award will be given out by founder Elizabeth Sackler. Following the ceremony, the article goes on to say that a 20 minute video on her career will be presented.
Elizabeth Sackle said, “Miss Piggy deservedly joins this august pantheon of extraordinary women who have previously received the award. Miss Piggy embodies exceptional spirit, determination, and grit, when needed, which has taught important lessons about overcoming obstacles to millions of young people, parents, grandparents—and virtually everyone who has ever watched this indomitable character on television or in films.”
In reply, Miss Piggy had a few words to share as well. “Moi is thrilled—but frankly, not surprised to be receiving this Sackler Center First Award,” Miss Piggy said. “It is truly wonderful to be celebrated and share this honor with fellow legends, role models, and pioneers of female fabulosity. We rock!”
Congrats to Miss Piggy and all her hard work.
