Sally Field, Linda Ronstadt, veteran R&b group Earth, Wind & Fire, “Sesame Street” and conductor Michael Tilson Thomas, will be recognized at the 2019 Kennedy Center Honors, the organization announced on Thursday.

The 42nd annual awards will take place on Dec. 8 and will be broadcast Sunday, Dec. 15 on CBS.

This year’s awards will be the first time an individual TV show has been recognized, and “Sesame Street” co-founders Joan Ganz Cooney and Dr. Lloyd Morrisett will accept the Kennedy Center Honors on behalf of themselves, Muppets creator Jim Henson (who died in 1990), Muppets artists Caroll Spinney and Frank Oz, and the thousands of creatives who have built the program’s 50-year legacy.
