ThreeSixty NYC

ANNOUNCING WINNERS!

A little drizzle didn’t dampen spirits at the Cynopsis Best of the Best and Rising Star Awards luncheon, a rousing celebration held at Tribeca Three Sixty in NYC. Cynopsis honored the best in the media business, from reality series, to documentaries, to kids and sports series, and more. David Osmond, actor, musician and host of Wonderama, emceed the proceedings, with lively assists from presenters Angela Robinson (OWN’s The Haves and the Have Nots), comedian Megan Stalter (National Lampoon Comedy Hour The Podcast) and Cody Harris and Booger Brown, stars of INSP’s The Cowboy Way.

Rising stars were asked to give career advice in nine words or less. Some examples: ”It’s always nice to be important, but it’s more important to be nice”; “The limit to what you can learn doesn’t exist”; “People and projects go, but your team is always there”; and “Never take a job for the money, but for what you can learn.”

Check out the full list of winners and Rising Stars below.
