Betty White won the SAG Award for female actor in a TV comedy series for her role in TV Land’s “Hot in Cleveland.”

White plays Elka Ostrovsky, the quick-witted elderly Polish caretaker with a mysterious past. White beat out Edie Falco in Showtime’s “Nurse Jackie,” Tina Fey in NBC’s “30 Rock” and Sofia Vergara as well as Julie Bowen in ABC’s “Modern Family.”


This is White’s second consecutive win for “Hot in Cleveland,” taking home the award last year. White also received a life achievement award in 2010.

The 18th Screen Actors Guild Awards were broadcast nationwide by TNT and TBS from the Shrine Exposition Center in Los Angeles.
