Betty White is my favorite person of all times!! She deserves this award more than anyone else in show business!!! Congratulations!

I love love love Betty White. No one has ever played dumb so smartly - and makes other people seem soooooo much funnier, with her subtle style and restrained, yet some how still outrageous humor.

I just hope Kayne West stays home. I heard he has a thing for Debbie Reynolds.

As a kid in LA I watched a TV show called "Life With Elizabeth" staring Betty White. Very early TV. Any way to see some of those shows now?

And let's hope Bob Barker is not invited to this award ceremony after his shameful behavior.

Everyone adores Betty White and she knows how to work it. Her life and talent are an inspiration.

Many may not recall that Betty portrayed a female U.S. Senator (a la Sen. Margaret Chase Smith of Maine) in Otto Preminger's classic political drama Advise & Consent (1962). She also was Emmy-nominated way back in the early '50s, making her Emmy nominated span stretch over 57 years !
