Betty White’s banner year continues. First the 87-year-old Golden Girl won raves for playing the naughty grandma in The Proposal (the strip club scene was very fun, but our favorite bit was her dance in the woods). And now the Screen Actors Guild is giving White its top honor, a Lifetime Achievement Award, at a Jan. 23 ceremony. SAG president Alan Rosenberg said: “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 60 years.”
In honor of that impeccable comic timing, we’d like to use this news as an excuse to offer one of our favorite Golden Girls moments. I’ll say it thrice — just try to get this jingle out of your head!
