Betty White is receiving one of the highest honors in television.
The National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences announced that the Golden Girls star will be presented with the Lifetime Achievement Award at the 42nd Annual Daytime Emmy Awards on Sunday, April 26.
NATAS President Bob Mauro called the 93-year-old actress an "American institution."
He said, "Betty's career as a female pioneer has followed television from literally the beginning of the medium, winning her first Emmy Award in 1952, to the digital-streaming future, winning again in 2010. She is one of the most beloved female performers in the history of television and the National Academy is proud to be honoring her with a most well-deserved Lifetime Achievement Award."
