On Twitter, Olivia Wilde, the actress from “Tron,” “House,” and the upcoming “Cowboys and Aliens,” tweeted she was nominated for a “Do Something Award,” on VH1. Curious, I wandered onto the page, and it’s a show that honors people in entertainment who donate time and money to charities. There is an actual awards show on VH1 on Aug. 18. Of course, I applaud there being an awards show to bring a spotlight to all these causes. But lets be honest, my support of the show will only go so far if it’s not entertaining.
There is a catagory for athletes, with surfer Bethany Hamilton, Los Angeles Galaxy’s David Beckham, tennis’ Rafael Nadal, skateboarder Ryan Sheckler and NASCAR driver Jeff Gordon.
