The U.S. television network NBC has pulled the boat out to celebrate the birthday of which is the quintessential Golden Grandmother of the United States and more than half the world, besides being more raucous grandmother television to celebrate with a special and a documentary 90 years of actress Betty White.
Not everyone celebrates 90 years in spectacular fashion, working and not wanting to retire. This is what happens to the humble and innocent Senolav born woman who made us laugh, and still continues, with tenderness in the series "Golden Girls" which aired on television from 1985 to 1992 and originally aired on NBC and was shown in over half the world.
The documentary "A Tribute to America's Golden Girl," which was filmed in early January, was released Monday on NBC in which they appear many TV stars like Amy Poehler, Joel McHale and colleagues and friends the series "Chuck." Colleagues and friends from other times they would not miss the great tribute. Ed Asner, who some will remember from the series "Lou Grant", Carol Burnett and Mary Tyler Moore for a night full of jokes about his age, brilliant speeches and clips of the 60-year career in film and television which makes a journey through personal and professional life of the artist.
Others who were present were Hugh Jackman, Amy Poehler, Joel McHale, Morgan Freeman, Ray Romano, Ellen DeGeneres, Carl Reiner, William Shatner, Chevy Chase, Zachary Levi (who proposed marriage to the star) and President Barack Obama who would not miss the big event.
It would have been a golden and diamonds time if other colleagues and friends of the series "The Golden Girls" were present, although they were in the heart and the memory of all who were in the celebration because, unfortunately, the three actresses who accompanied her on the show, died.
The actress confesses that he has done nothing to deserve such tributes and said feel overwhelmed by the honor but many people do not think so. The documentary was followed by 14 million viewers throughout the United States. "I do not know why everyone wants to celebrate my 90th birthday, if I did nothing special," said Betty White.
Still active, as it continues to act in the series Hot in Cleveland, Betty does not think the "retirement", as the work and be surrounded by their own is what makes him keep going.
Betty White was again present in March 2010, at 88 years old, when she was chosen to present a special broadcast of Saturday Night Live comedy show to mark the "Day of the mother". NBC chose the actress to be the host of the program after five hundred people at their request, the social network Facebook. The episode aired in the U.S. on May 8 of that year with high ratings and critical acclaim. This involvement White earned a new Emmy for "Best Guest Actress - Comedy Series.".
