11The World Is Re-Realizing The Awesomeness That Is Betty White

Betty White

If you missed Betty White’s utterly amazing and hilarious appearance on Saturday Night Live, then you should probably reconsider what you’re doing with your free time and go ahead and pay homage to this American hero.  Good ol’ Betty was admittedly a bit nervous at first, but she got over it real quick and it made for an awesome SNL in the midst of the shit show it’s turned into recently.  So yeah, go ahead and watch that if you haven’t and probably rewatch it if you have, because it is just the right thing to do.  But that’s not what this is about.

Today, MTV announced the nominees for their Movie Awards, and Betty White made the list for Best WTF Moment.  This moment took place in The Proposal, which I didn’t see, but I’m willing to vote for her just for integrity’s sake.  Other nominees include moments from the movies Zombieland, Transformers:  Revenge Of The Fallen, The Hangover, and Jennifer’s Body.  MTV, do yourself a favor and don’t even bother looking at these votes, because if Betty White doesn’t win, it is surely a sign of the End Times.

Maybe you might think I feel a bit strongly about Betty White, and I do.  I really do.  This probably stems from all the hours I spent watching Golden Girls as a child and the deep connection I felt with Rose.  I may not have known what menopause was, and I may not have understood the massive amount of whore jokes directed at Blanche, but I could definitely sympathize with Rose.  I didn’t have a blind sister or a dead husband, but I had that same childlike spirit and naivety along with the ability to tell remarkably long stories that no one seemed to care about (that might have been because I was 6, but that’s not important).  So here’s to you, Betty.  I hope with all my heart that you get that ridiculous popcorn statue from MTV, because no one deserves it more than you.

    Rose’s sister was blind. There, it’s out there. I watch way to much Golden Girls. BW’s performance on SNL rocked. The muffin skit was great.

    I got to check Betty White in when I worked at the Hyatt Regency Chicago back in the 80′s. She was the bomb then and has been ever since. I got to watch her Biography last night! It completely reminded me off all the awesomeness that was the Golden Girls!

    She truly is a living legend.

    Betty White sucks at such a cosmic level as to only be understood by Stephen Hawking.
