Miss Piggy to receive her first award

Did you know that despite starring in eight feature films and an Emmy award-winning television series Miss Piggy has never won an award?

Well that will change on June 4, when the Muppets star will be presented with an award at the annual Sackler Center First Awards at the Brooklyn Museum.

The event celebrates women who have broken gender barriers and made remarkable contributions in their fields. Elizabeth Sackler, founder of the awards, will present the award to Miss Piggy. After her acceptance speech, Miss Piggy will sit down for a 20-minute video retrospective of her career and a conversation with Gloria Steinem.

Speaking about her award, Miss Piggy said “Moi is thrilled—but frankly, not surprised to be receiving this Sackler Center First Award”.

“It is truly wonderful to be celebrated and share this honor with fellow legends, role models, and pioneers of female fabulosity. We rock!”

Of course, Kermit the Frog will join is porcine paramour at the event.
