This article has been updated from original posting in 2012 celebrating Betty's 90th birthday titled Happy 90th Pre-B-Day to America's Goldest Sweetheart, Betty White: Born January 17, 2012 ninety years ago! Is 90 really the NEW 60?
Ninety-five is indeed the new sixty-five in all respects for White. What began in the year 1952 was filled with whirlwinds of events that would call for sixty-fifth anniversary celebrations for White in the year 2017.
Sixty-five years ago, White (then 30 years old) became an entrepreneur, co-founding Bandy Productions with writer George Tibbles, who wrote every episode of "Life With Elizabeth" and Don Fedderson, a producer.
It was 65 amazing years ago that White had the starring role in "Life With Elizabeth" where she earned her first of six Emmy Awards.
The low-budget comedy was produced by and filmed at a local Los Angeles TV station where White and Moore were on the staff (the series was originally a live production on KLAC-TV in 1952). George Tibbles wrote every episode of the series.
This was also the time when iconic Betty White not only became known as a famous TV Star -- now the year 2017 we celebrate White's 65th anniversary of her first commercial TV appearance -- all this while having her very own Radio Show,"The Betty White Show," all this while being a 30 year old in the year 1952!
Over the course of her 80+ year career, working with 200+ leading actors, and 75+ films, White has won seven Emmy Awards (six for acting).
She has received 20 Emmy nominations, including being the first woman ever to receive an Emmy for game show hosting (for the short-lived Just Men!).
White is still the only female to have an Emmy in all female performing comedic categories.
In May 2010, White became the oldest person to guest-host Saturday Night Live, for which she also received a Primetime Emmy Award.
