There are very few people that don't know who Betty White is and she's still stealing the show at age of 96, just like she did during the recent Emmys ceremony.

The prestigious event took place on Monday night, September 17, 2018, at the Microsoft Theater in Downtown Los Angeles, California and was broadcasted by NBC.

During the ceremony, White delivered a beautiful speech that didn't leave anyone indifferent, thanking everyone for still 'putting up' with her after so many years.

Only a handful of people in the entertainment business can brag about having such a rich and fulfilling career like White. Follow us on our Twitter account @amomama_usa to learn more.

The 96-year-old lady truly is a treasure and she is called a legend for a reason; in fact, Kate McKinnon, who introduced White alongside Alec Baldwin, called her 'the greatest of all time.'

White has been around even longer than the Emmys, considering that the first awards ceremony took place 69 years ago and that the actress launched her career a whole decade earlier.

Upon taking the stage, she was greeted by a standing ovation, which clearly moved her. As usual, White let her funny bone lead the way and made some jokes at her expense, including calling herself the 'first woman on television.'

STILL THE SAME SWEET AND HUMBLE LADY

But between all the laughter, she took the opportunity to be serious for a moment and, with a little tear in her eye, thanked everyone for still appreciating her presence in the show business.

More than anyone, White, who starred on shows such as "The Golden Girls," "Mama's Family" and "The Mary Tyler Moore Show," thanked Lorne Michaels, the creator of "Saturday Night Live" for arranging her Emmy highlight.

NO RETIREMENT PLANNED

According to Steven J. Boettcher, a close friend of the actress, White won't retire anytime soon because she loves working and lives for the challenge of appearing in front of the camera.

Boettcher also co-directed the new documentary about the 96-year-old legend, "Betty White: First Lady of Television," which was filmed over the course of 10 years.
