TV Lands Awards kick off in L.A.

Mel Brooks and Carl Reiner nabbed the highest honor

Once upon a time, Soundstage 27 on Culver City’s Sony lot held the Yellow Brick Road.

On Saturday, it was home to the equally fantastical TV Land Awards, honoring stars who’ve segued from the tube to the bigscreen and, in some cases, legend.

The cast of “Glee” received TV Land’s Future Classic kudo, which followed an honor for the genuinely old classic “Bosom Buddies,” starring Tom Hanks, from three decades ago.
