I don't see it happening and am not sure she is even worthy. It's one thing to give it to someone like Lucille Ball who clearly changed TV comedy, or Norman Lear who did the same, but Agnes Nixon? What exactly was her impact? I love 80s AMC but I cannot think of why the Kennedy Center would honor any of the names mentioned.
I actually feel her impact, while it was never celebrated the way it would be for Lear, was as broad-reaching. Seriously (and yes, I know I'm very biased.) Maybe in a less direct fashion, but... Certainly I feel she is an American institution, and should be celebrated and recognized as such--not just with Daytime Emmy award that nobody cares about. You could easily make a compelling package for her award, IMHO.
Irna Phillips as well... Nixon learned most of what she knew from Irna.
Absolutely--as she always says. I daresay she improved I, however (and even much of what we think of when we think of Irna's shows was partly due to Agnes--ie helping to create ATWT, and writing so much of GL during its first two decades.)
