INDIANA, Pa. — Actress and comedian Carol Burnett was honored by a Pennsylvania museum dedicated to actor Jimmy Stewart.

Burnett received the museum’s Harvey Award at a Friday night fundraiser for the James M. Stewart Museum Foundation.

The foundation and museum are based in Stewart’s Pennsylvania hometown, Indiana, about 45 miles northeast of Pittsburgh. The banquet is in nearby Blairsville.

Past winners include Janet Leigh, Shirley Jones, Ernest Borgnine and Rich Little. The award is named for the 1950 film in which Stewart befriends an invisible rabbit. It is typically given to someone with connections to Stewart.

Burnett has called Stewart her idol. He appeared on the final episode of “The Carol Burnett Show” as a surprise guest, ending its 11-year run in 1978. Stewart died in 1997.
