The CSI: Crime Scene Investigation episode “Coup de Grace” is one of eight “Television Academy Honors” recipients for 2010.
The honorees are programmes that dealt with thought-provoking issues last year. In the case of “Coupe de Grace”, CSI tackled race and prejudice in the police force. Other winners include freshman Fox series Glee (“Wheels”), ABC’s Private Practice (“Nothing to Fear”) and the Discovery Health documentary Unlocking Autism.
“This year, we were impressed by not only the number of entries received but also by the breadth of subject matters addressed,” said Academy of Television Arts & Sciences Chairman and CEO John Shaffner. “We went to great lengths to select [programmes] that reflect the mission of the Television Academy Honors committee — to highlight the power of television and its ability to initiate important dialogue and ultimately instigate change.”
A full list of recipients can be found on the official Television Academy Honors website.
