The screen show concluded with a beaming face of the star while the award presenter went on to present the 2022 Webby Social Achievements Award to “the one, the only Drew Barrymore.”
The movie star was pretty excited as she strolled towards the stage to receive the honor while also looking striking in an all-white suit ensemble.
Barrymore has had a lot to celebrate these past few months, with the recent Webby honor she received and CBS’ renewal of her show for another season.
The Blast shared that the talk show host was pretty ecstatic as she announced the good news. She also expressed her gratitude by thanking everyone who helped with the program’s success.
CBS could not be more thrilled to continue their partnership with her as the president of CBS Media Ventures, Steve LoCascio released a statement, noting that the “Charlie’s Angels” actress was a “force of nature.”
In his words, “From Drew’s unique take on everyday news to headline-generating celebrity interviews to lifestyle how-tos, Drew is a force of nature who has brought a fresh, optimistic viewpoint to daytime television.”
Speaking of Barrymore’s celebrity interviews on the show, she showed interest not too long ago in featuring prominent pop princess Britney Spears following the termination of her conservatorship.

The Blast previously reported that the California-born performer recently expressed her intent to have Spears on her program while also admitting that she could relate to Spears’ story.
Barrymore further noted that very few celebrities had experienced what the pop star had and had put up a fight.
In her words, “There’s not a ton of us out there who have publicly lost our freedom, had breakdowns in front of everyone, become punchlines, and fought our way back.”
Spears has not replied to the actress’s proposal; however, it will be her first post-conservatorship television interview if she appears on the show. In addition, it will be a huge achievement for Barrymore’s talk-show career.
The “Poison Ivy” actress never ceased to support the cancellation of the songstress’ conservatorship from the onset as she believed everyone deserved freedom.
She also sent the pop icon encouraging videos during the battle, letting her know she understood what she was going through and was there to support the singer.
