Presented to "Lily", which was comedian Lily Tomlin's first TV special that she did in the 1970's as the featured star. This was her follow up to her appearances on "Laugh In". She was offered her own TV special by CBS in 1973 and it turned into a variety show that was driven by charected-based sketches. It was a ground breaking special, quite different than what was being done at the time. Not only did Lily do some of her classic characters such as Ernestine and Edith Ann but introduced a new characted named Bobbie Jean who was a cocktail lounge piano player who talked to her audience at the Starlight Lounge where she played. Richard Pryor was also a guest on the show. Pryor had a writing credit on "Lily" and also received an emmy along with Tomlin and future Saturday Night Live creator Lorne Michaels. This 1973-74 Primetime Emmy Award measures 15-1/4" x 7-1/2" x 7-1/2" and depicts an angel with lightning bolt wings having her arms stretched out over her head. She is holding a round sphere as she looks upward having her long dress blowing in the breeze. She stands on a gold base with "THE NATIONAL ACADEMY OF TELEVISION ARTS AND SCIENCES" printed in gold raised lettering in a circular pattern surrounding her. Around the base is a circular black plaque reading "1973-74 PRIMETIME EMMY AWARDS JACQUELINE RANALLO Writer 'LILY' CBS Outstanding Writing In Comedy-Variety Music Program". The bottom is black felt and it weighs approximately five pounds. It is in overall excellent condition with some tarnishing along the gold base.
