The Creative Arts Emmys (or the Schmemmys as Kathy Griffin has officially dubbed them) is the Emmys’ grown step sister who still sits at the children’s table even though her ass cheeks don’t fit on the tiny stool anymore. Well, she temporarily got up from the children’s table last night for her big moment in the spotlight. And she didn’t disappoint, because she did the right thing by honoring international treasure Betty White for her triumphant performance on Saturday Night Live!
Unfortunately, Betty wasn’t there to accept her award, because the show cut into her nap time and nothing is more important than nap time. No, Betty didn’t go because she gets tired of people throwing themselves at her feet and handing over their babies (or trophies) for her to bless.
Surprisingly enough, Betty didn’t win every award last night. Illegal, I know. Others won too. Here’s just some of the winners (full list here):
Best Guest Actress in a Comedy: Betty White, “Saturday Night Live”
