At this Saturday's Screen Actors Guild Awards, the recipient of the Lifetime Achievement Award won't be just a movie star: She's a performer who's brought her presence to TV, to movies and to the stage. It's Carol Burnett, who is perhaps most famous for starring on 11 seasons (and nearly 300 episodes) of The Carol Burnett Show.

Following the success of Betty White's SNL hosting gig, bookers at NBC might be hoping to have another senior moment.
And while it would be tough to top White's digs at Facebook, double entendres about her muffin and her racy kiss with MacGruber, Hollywood has more than its fair share of women who are over 60 and up for the job.
In fact, a Carol Burnett Facebook campaign has sprung up – it worked for Betty, after all. But as The New York Times points out, Burnett should be in no rush. This coming weekend will bring the SNL season finale, to be hosted by Alec Baldwin.

It's not exactly up there with getting to be a Rockette on the great stage of Radio City Music Hall, but Today show host Meredith Vieira saw another dream come true Wednesday morning when she got "living legend" – Vieira's very words – Carol Burnett to teach her the comedian's trademark Tarzan yell.
"It's a yodel," the star, 74, promoting her new movie Dr. Seuss' Horton Hears a Who, explained, "so you go from ... the 'chest voice' to the 'head voice.' "
Vieira, 54, scored perhaps a 7 for her efforts. Then the crowd outside the studio in Rockefeller Plaza tried their pipes. They sounded like a jungle full of Tarzans.
Last to attempt to make like the famous (vine)-swinger? Martha Stewart, 66, who ended up sounding like a frog croaking. Advised Burnett: Stick to the cooking.
