Betty White, Neil Patrick Harris Win Emmy Awards
Betty White has scored another career-boosting victory, this time at the Emmy Awards‘ creative arts ceremony held at the Nokia Theater in Los Angeles on Saturday.
White was honored as best guest actress in a comedy series for her “Saturday Night Live” hosting gig. The award is the third significant success for White this year, following a hit Super Bowl commercial and the launching of her own sitcom “Hot in Cleveland.” The 88-year-old “The Golden Girls” actress has now five Emmy awards.
Meanwhile, Neil Patrick Harris was the other big winner at the ceremony, which comes a few days before the main awards are given away on August 29. Harris received the best guest actor in a comedy for “Glee,” and shared a win for this year’s “Tony Awards,” which was named as best special class program.
The HBO series “The Pacific” had the most awards with seven, while “Modern Family,” “Saturday Night Live,” and “The 25th Anniversary Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Concert” took three trophies each.
