Update

The good folks at the Peabody Awards have removed the acceptance speech videos from YouTube, so unfortunately, you're stuck taking our word for it. They really did happen!

Just in case you didn't believe us, we've got the proof below. Check out John Oliver's and Issa Rae's acceptance speeches from Saturday's 77th Annual Peabody Awards event at Cipriani Wall Street in New York City ("the most woke awards show in the least woke location," according to the evening's host, Hasan Minhaj).
