Carol Burnett honoured with a Harvey Award

(SNN) - Carol Burnett, actress, comedian and writer best known for her variety hit television show, "The Carol Burnett Show", has been honoured by a Pennsylvania museum dedicated to actor Jimmy Stewart.

Burnett received the museum's Harvey Award at a fundraiser banquet Friday for the James M. Stewart Museum Foundation. The Harvey Award was added to an already impressive collection of Emmy's and Golden Globe awards Burnett has acquired.

Past honourees include Ernest Borgnine, Rich Little, Shirley Jones and Janet Leigh. The Harvey award is named after Jimmy Stewart's hit motion picture of the same name. In the movie, released in 1950, Stewart befriends a pooka named Harvey, a six-foot, three-and-a-half-inch tall invisible rabbit. The Harvey Award is typically presented to someone that has been associated or has had a connection with James Stewart.

As a surprise guest, Stewart appeared in the last episode of "The Carol Burnett Show" in 1978, concluding a successful run of 11 years.
