Everyone’s favorite senior citizen actress, Betty White, earned an Emmy nomination for her role in Hot In Cleveland. The 63rd Primetime Emmys, which will take place on September 18, 2011 on Fox, also awarded the comedy show a nomination in the Outstanding Art Direction For A Multi-Camera Series category.

White’s nowhere near getting ready to retire as she continues work on both TV and in feature films. In Hot in Cleveland, White stars as Elka Ostrovsky, an opinionated caretaker who lives in the rented house where the action in the show takes place. The show also stars Valerie Bertinelli as novelist Melanie Moretti, Jane Leeves as “eye-brow archer to the stars” Joy Scroggs, and Wendie Malick as a former soap star named Victoria Chase.

“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 Larry W. Jones, president, TV Land. “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.”

“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,” added Betty White.
