As StuntDouble told you earlier this week, last Sunday’s filming of the TV Land Awards gave some well-deserved props to our favorite Girls of Gold.
After the reminder of some of the reasons we still love Dorothy, Blanche and Rose, you’ll be happy to know that you can watch the award show on TV Land this Sunday, June 15, at 9 p.m. EST. And just in case seeing the Golden Girls isn’t enough motivation for you to watch (and, if that’s the case, what’s wrong with you?), here are seven more reasons to tune in.
1. The host.
Could Vanessa Williams be any more beautiful? Just. Wow.
2. Schlemiel! Schlimazel! Hasenpfeffer Incorporated!
All of those words are in spell check – as if we needed proof that Laverne & Shirley changed the world.
3. Both Beckys.
Roseanne received the Innovator Award. I think Roseanne Barr looks marvelous – don’t you love her hair?
And, of course, seeing Sara Gilbert out and about is always a treat.
I honestly had forgotten that Sarah Chalke was a Becky. I hadn’t forgotten that I liked Alicia Goranson’s version better.
4. Classic TV stars who shouldn’t be wearing their characters’ outfits.

5. Kathy Griffin introduces paparazzi.
OK, she actually introduces the TV Land spoof Paparazzi, which turns classic TV characters into tabloid TV fodder. Here’s a preview.
6. Mary Ann disavows Mary Jane
Dawn Wells claims that the roaches in her car, for which she was arrested last October, belonged to a friend. But the best part of the explanation: “The story mushroomed, and I lost out on a Girl Scout speaking engagement.” So much for the Rolling Along badge.
7. More SATC?
I don’t know the meaning of this. But I sure want to.
Will you tune in for The TV Land Awards? And if you watch it, check back in and let us know what you thought.
