Nigel Lythgoe: Betty White Got Cheeky with Me at the Britannia Awards

Nigel Lythgoe

For the first time ever, the Britannia Awards will be broadcast in the United States, on TV Guide Network, and BAFTA Los Angeles Chairman Nigel Lythgoe says viewers are in for a night of off-the-cuff comedy.

Hosted by British comedian Stephen Fry, the ceremony honors those who have made an outstanding contribution to the entertainment industry in the U.S. and Great Britain. Because the honorees already know they're getting an award, the atmosphere is much more relaxed, Lythgoe says.

The So You Think You Can Dance and American Idol executive producer says it's so comfortable, Betty White even made a pass at him at this year's event. 

TVGuide.com: This is the first time the Britannia Awards have aired in the United States. As chairman, are you proud to be able to share this with America?
Nigel Lythgoe:
Absolutely. It's been wonderful for a couple of years and very frustrating that it hasn't been on in America. Last year, Ben Stiller's speech was one of the funniest things I've ever seen. The rest of the world got to see it and we didn't here in America. It seemed crazy, so I'm delighted that... read more

Sweeps Watch: Gilmore Review, Bones Preview

A warm thought for the deep chill of winter: Even in the doldrums of a miserable season, Gilmore Girls proves that it’s still capable of greatness. This week’s episode returned to its core, the electrifying dynamic among three generations of Gilmore women, balancing humor with searing flashes of drama in an episode incomparably illuminated by the welcome return of Kelly Bishop’s imperious, hilarious, monstrous yet ultimately oh-so-human Emily Gilmore.It seems like ages since we’ve seen Bishop at her best. And no mistake about it, she was at her best this week, rising to the occasion when Emily’s husband, Richard (the estimable Edward Herrmann), is felled with a heart attack. Bossing around the hospital staff, railing against the incompetence of any poor health-club or service worker who has the bad luck to come up against her, she is a riot. And as Lorelai and Rory sit in amused horror, we know deep down all will be well because they’re all together aga... read more
