Sesame Street and What's My Name | Muhammad Ali were honored for children's program and sports program, respectively, at the event at Ascent Lounge.

The 49th season of Sesame Street beat out other nominees including Carmen Sandiego (seasons one and two), Green Eggs and Ham (season one), Jim Henson's The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance (season one) and A Series of Unfortunate Events (season three). 

What's My Name | Muhammad Ali bested fellow sports nominees Hard Knocks: Training Camp With the Oakland Raiders (season 14), Lindsey Vonn: The Final Season, Real Sports With Bryant Gumbel (season 25) and SportsCenter With Scott Van Pelt (season five).

Additionally, producer Mari Jo Winkler was presented with the Charles FitzSimons Award for her leadership and ongoing commitment to the guild, including helping to further green initiatives.

The winners of the PGA's new Innovation Award and outstanding shortform program will be announced at a PGA nominees event on Thursday at the Hollywood Museum in Los Angeles. 

The winners in the theatrical motion pictures, animated theatrical motion pictures, television series/specials, limited series television and streamed/televised motion pictures categories, meanwhile, will be announced at the 31st annual PGA Awards ceremony at the Hollywood Palladium on Saturday.
