Die at 99 Betty White, the last golden girl who never stopped being a star

In this life there is the option of being a star, not being or being Betty White. They will all think that she was a star and, in part, have a certain reason. But the term is short. So they say it almost 80 years of her on television, the seven Emmy Awards and her resurrection as a star of her when she was and her life should be turned off the 90 years.

It was there when Illinois's golden blonde made us think that besides a star could be eternal, the first being that would end the world before it ended with her. But not. The last day of 2021, with 99 years and a special television for issuing to celebrate the 100 that was going to meet on January 17, he wanted to close the second calamitous year consecutively with the death of the last Golden Girl.

That will always be the role, that of Rose Nylund, who will mark an immense career initiated as the operet singer at the end of the 30s and to which only his death endeavored. That is why the jury of the Guiness record recognized it in 2013 as the most extensive in history. So another eight years and that she tries someone to break that record.

"This is the best profession in the world," Betty White recognized in the documentary The Lady of Television, available on Movistar +, where all its trajectory is reviewed: the beginning in 1949 on a local California canal as a DJ's companion. Jarvis; The Sketch Life with Elisabeth next to the Moore, which in 1951 would become the first woman to win an Emmy as a better comedy actress; The tour of her for the television contests where she will meet her first husband, Allen Ludden; that of it two Emmy awards of her continues Mary Tyler Moore Show; The megaexite of the Golden Girls, and the eternal resurrection of it as the older hostess of Saturday Night Live who gave him another Emmy in 2010.

This is only the summary of everything that happened in the life of one of the foundational myths of television, feminist reference and advocacy of racial rights. If she was the first woman with an Emmy, she was also a female pioneer as a producer and turned Betty Turviville into the first television director of her talk show her.

The struggle for the rights of African-Americans had to face it in the 50s in that same space when from the south of the country, where white supremacism prevailed, the dismissal of Arthur Duncan was asked, the first African-American collaborator, for being Black, White's response was a routing negative. "The atmosphere was loaded in the south of the country, but it was clear that Arthur was going to be left, they had to accept it," he recognized in his documentary, where he also pulls humor: "Now nobody remembers that stage, they had not been born when it happened" .

When success seemed that it was beginning to sneak into their professional life with the passage of the golden girls that between 1985 and 1992 would give him another Emmy and four nominations to the Golden Balloons for his work with Beatrice Arthur, Rue McClanahan and Estelle Getty. Not to mention that this one would end up becoming one of the most remembered series of television history and in the great showcase for Betty White that in the 1990s and 2000 he also proved in cinema with participations in the proposition Next to Sandra Bullock and Ryan Reynolds or on Valentine's Day Lost next to Jennifer Love Hewitt.

And at 88, there was still time for a latter assault on millennial generation. He was the one who gave Saturday Night Live, who turned it into his most veteran hostess in a special mother's Day program next to Tina Fey, Rachel Dracht, Maya Rudolph or Amy Poehler and was faraged by a new Emmy as a better guest actress. "The scenic panic is very uncomfortable, but it is a lifesaver because it is necessary to counteract it and that makes you overcome it," the actress remembered after the filming of a program that also ended it even to the Superbowl as protagonist of an announcement of a Chocolate Snickers .

"He became a pop icon and was once again an authentic star," Actor Ryan Reynolds said at that moment. As if the term could welcome everything that was Betty White. More than a star.
