June Foray To Receive TV Academy Governors Award

Entertainment career spans eight decades

June Foray will be presented with the Governors Award from the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences Board of Governors at the Creative Arts Emmys on Sept. 15.

Foray’s entertainment career spans eight decades, six of them spent in becoming an animation voiceover legend with such roles as Rocky the Flying Squirrel and Natasha Fatale on “The Bullwinkle Show,” Nell Fenwick on “The Dudley Do-Right Show,” Cindy Lou Who in “How the Grinch Stole Christmas” and Granny (the owner of Tweety and Sylvester) on “The Bugs Bunny Show.” She won a Daytime Emmy as recently as last year for “The Garfield Show.”

“I’m still going,” she told Variety in February. “It keeps you thinking young.”

Foray also played a key role in the creation of the Annie Awards, now 40 years old.

“Each year, the Board of Governors recognizes a person or organization whose contributions to our industry will forever live on,” said Television Academy chairman and CEO Bruce Rosenblum. “June Foray absolutely embodies everything that this honor represents.  A legend and a pioneer, June is not only in a class of her own, but she literally created that class.  There is simply no one more deserving of this honor.”
