Betty White has been nominated for Outstanding Supporting Actress In A Comedy Series for her role on TV Land’s “Hot in Cleveland.” The announcement came from the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences late last week. The 63rd Primetime Emmy® Awards are scheduled to air this September.
White plays Elka Ostrovsky on “Hot in Cleveland,” TV Land’s biggest hit show these days. Her costars include Valerie Bertinelli (“One Day at a Time”), Jane Leeves (“Frasier”), and Wendie Malick (“Just Shoot Me”). The show also received a nomination for Outstanding Art Direction For A Multi-Camera Series.
“It’s a dream come true for all of us to be working with an icon like Betty White every single day on ‘Hot in Cleveland,’” said the president of TV Land, Larry W. Jones. “We pinch ourselves that we have the honor to work with her as well as the rest of the talented cast. The additional nominations for our original sitcoms ‘Hot’ and ‘Retired at 35′ make this day even more exciting,” he added.
Betty White said very graciously, “I am going to sit here in shock and celebrate that I am working with three wonderful women – Valerie Bertinelli, Jane Leeves and Wendie Malick,”
