With 6 Emmys and 18 nominations, Betty White adds another trophy to her mantle this year. THR reports the the Screen Actors Guild will honor Betty with its Lifetime Acheivement Award.
White is best known for her roles as the deceptively sweet Sue Ann Nivens on “The Mary Tyler Moore Show” and the sweetly naive Rose Nylund on “The Golden Girls.” She has also made her mark as a passionate animal activist.
“Whether creating some of television’s most indelible characters, plunging into film roles with joyous gusto or perfecting the art of the quip as a television panelist and host, Betty White has entertained audiences with her impeccable comic timing and remarkable wit for more than sixty years,” SAG national president Alan Rosenberg said.
At 87, Betty White is wittier and naughtier than most actresses of any age. She’s my favorite guest on Craig Ferguson’s Late Late Show, my favorite character on The Golden Girls and probably my favorite character on The Mary Tyler Moore Show, too. (Did you know you can watch full episodes of the MTM show on IMDb? Me neither, until today.)
