Betty White's Year
9 May 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I hope this is the year for Betty White. I hope she's in the running for the National Medal of the Arts and Kennedy Center Honors. After last night's hosting duties of Saturday Night Live with some famous female alumni like Amy Poehler, Tina Fey, Molly Shannon, Ana Gasteyer, and Maya Rudolph to help along. Betty White was perfect in her role as a hostess. My only complaint is that they should have parodied shows like Mary Tyler Moore, Betty White, the Golden Girls, my favorite-Mama's Family, etc. Betty White is an American legend in television which is probably why it was Facebook that helped launch a campaign to get her to host the show. The show's writers should have done even a game show sketch since she was very involved in game shows as well. Still, Betty White had her night right before mother's day. Ironically, she's not a mother herself but she has been a mother figure in the entertainment world. Next time when she hosts (I know she's 88 1/2 years old) but I hope that they would parody some of the sitcoms. Thanks, Betty for giving the hands-down best episode of the season and playing brilliantly last night.
