Can we just change her name to The Beloved Betty White?
The “Golden Girls” star, multiple Emmy Award winner and soon-to-be “Saturday Night Live” host will have to make room for another award. She’ll receive the Lifetime Achievement Award in Acting at the American Women in Radio & Television’s Genii Awards on April 14. “Tonight Show” host Jay Leno will present the honor to her.
“Anyone can have a life — careers are hard to come by,” Leno says. “I am honored to celebrate the amazing career of Betty White and her extraordinary achievements in acting. This Golden Girl has won my heart and the hearts of many fans from around the world.”
By our count, the AWRT’s honor is the third career-achievement award White has picked up in the past year. She won a life achievement honor from the Screen Actors Guild in January and a career achievement award from the Television Critics Association last summer.
Not that she’s done with her career. In addition to her “SNL” gig in May, she’ll guest on the season finale of “The Middle,” co-star in TV Land’s series “Hot in Cleveland,” which debuts in June, and appear in the Kristen Bell movie “You Again” in September.
