The world hasn’t completely stopped, despite what you may hear. Case in point: the 41st annual Telly Awards were recently announced.
San Francisco-based standouts range from All of it Now’s “BTS – Love Yourself: Speak Yourself World Tour” to Autodesk’s “From Basketball to Buildings, Ed Mazria Earns a Slam Dunk With Architecture 2030” and Square’s “Forged in Flint” documentaries.
Under the theme of “Telly Award Winners Tell Great Stories”, a new suite of ‘Immersive & Mixed Reality’ as well as expansions of the ‘Social Impact’ and ‘Diversity & Inclusion’ categories were added. The 2020 awards once again named CBS Interactive as the ‘Telly Company of the Year’ for years of achievement in multi-platform narratives such as 60 Minutes Overtime on CBS News and The Late Show with Stephen Colbert along with branded content pieces for the likes of Google, Oculus Quest, and Toyota.
The 41st Telly’s also saw a rise in COVID-19-related works created during and/or addressing the ongoing lockdown period including The Juilliard School’s “Bolero Julliard”, a choreographed Zoom performance featuring 100+ of the conservatory’s alumni and legendary musician Yo-Yo Ma.
