Betty White takes the stage for a standing ovation at the 2018 Emmy Awards.

White was honored for more than 80 years in show business, including several decades in television.

“Someone said something about the first lady of television the other day, and I took that as a huge compliment,” White said. “Then came the punchline, ‘And then I heard her talk to her daughter after a while, and she said, ‘First lady, she’s so old. She was kind of back the first time.'”

White, who starred in hit shows like “The Golden Girls” and “The Mary Tyler Moore Show,” was also poignant.

“I didn’t even dream back then that I’d be here and it’s unbelievable that I’m still in this business and you’re still with me,” White said. “I’m thanking you. It’s unbelievable that you can last such a long career and still have people with you. I wish they had done that at home.”

She made the crowd laugh again with a joke about “Saturday Night Live” producer Lorne Michaels.

White quipped, “I want to thank Lorne Michaels, not only tonight but the wonderful things he’s done to me, not to me.” “All I can say is it is such a blessed business to be in it and how lucky I can be and I thank each and every one of you.”
