The MAC Awards, according to the official MAC website, are presented annually to "honor achievements in Cabaret, Comedy, and Jazz. The Awards encompass more that two dozen categories such as: vocalists and vocal groups, piano bar and jazz performers, comedy and musical performers, writers of songs and special material, directors, musical directors, recordings, and more. In addition, through special awards, MAC salutes outstanding contributions to the field of live entertainment." Andrea Marcovicci and Nancy Witter co-hosted the ceremony, which presented stage and screen veteran Polly Bergen with the 2009 Lifetime Achievement Award.
