By Tucker Harrington

Although she is considered a television icon for roles on hit sitcoms such as “The Mary Tyler Moore Show” and “Golden Girls,” Betty White was recognized during the Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Awards for her role in “Hot in Cleveland,” which is a hit on TV Land.

White, who has been experiencing a major comeback due to being a cult favorite recently, was given the recognition award for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Comedy Series. Those who work with White noted that this was an honor for the acclaimed actress.

“We could not be more proud of Betty and our entire cast,” said Larry W. Jones, president, TV Land. “Betty is a true legend and brings her magic to the set day after day. She is an amazing comedy actor. I am so thrilled that she was recognized for her work on ‘Hot in Cleveland.'”

White is on a hot streak when it comes to recognition awards. She won an Emmy in 2010 for her guest spot on “Saturday Night Live.”
