File this in the "what the heck took 'em so long?" department, but Julie Andrews
is finally getting a lifetime achievement award from SAG, which she highly deserves. Mary Poppins
and The Sound of Music
alone should have put her in line for this award years ago. Seeing as how both of those films regularly top critic's lists of "Films Starring a Musical Nanny Played by Julie Andrews," that's the cinematic equivalent of making the hall of fame.
Me? I would have given it to her for writing one of my favorite children's books, The Last of the Really Great Whangdoodles.
