Betty White received top acting honors at the 18th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards® last night at The Los Angeles Shrine Exposition Center, winning Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Comedy Series for her role as Elka in the TV Land original sitcom, “Hot in Cleveland.” This is White’s second win for her role on the series as she won the SAG Award® in the same category last year.
“Hot in Cleveland” is the network’s critically-acclaimed hit starring beloved actresses Valerie Bertinelli (“One Day at a Time”), Jane Leeves (“Frasier”), Wendie Malick (“Just Shoot Me”) and Emmy® Award-winner, Betty White (“The Golden Girls”). The show is currently in its third season and airs Wednesdays at 10pm ET/PT on TV Land.
“There are reasons that Betty White has been on television for over 50 years,” said Larry W. Jones, president, TV Land. “She’s hilarious, her comedic timing is unmatched, and there’s nothing she can’t do. We’re grateful to work with her on ‘Hot in Cleveland,’ and couldn’t be more proud of her continued achievements.”
