Happy birthday to Hollywood's golden girl!
Betty White celebrates her 95th birthday Tuesday, reaching yet another milestone in a decades-spanning career that is still just as active as ever. It's hard to believe it's been 55 years since the beloved actress made her feature film debut in "Advise & Consent," a performance that led to breakout role after breakout role in both television and film.
Her time in the spotlight is so legendary that in 2013, the Guinness Book of World Records recognized White as having the longest TV career for any female entertainer.

From "The Mary Tyler Moore Show" to "The Golden Girls" and every hilarious game show appearance in between, it's nearly impossible to pick just one of Betty's roles as the best. So in honor of her special day, E! News picked seven of their favorite Betty White performances.
'The Mary Tyler Moore Show': Oh Sue Ann Nivens, how we love thee. White starred in the long-running 70s sitcom, winning back-to-back Emmys for her comedic chops that later led to her landing her own self-titled show on CBS.
'The Golden Girls': If White wasn't a household name by 1985, she certainly was after the classic sitcom following four widows-turned-roomies hit TV. Then 63, White starred opposite Bea Arthur, Estelle Getty and Rue McClanahan throughout "The Golden Girls"' seven-year run, earning four Golden Globe nominations and one Emmy for the role.
'Password': The birthday girl is known as the First Lady of Game Shows, and in 1983, Betty became the first woman to win a Daytime Emmy in the Outstanding Game Show Host category for "Just Men!" White went on to appear and host a handful of game shows well into the 2000s, and even met her husband, TV personality Allen Ludden, on "Password."
'The Proposal': More modern moviegoers were introduced to the national treasure that is Betty White when she starred opposite Sandra Bullock and Ryan Reynold in this 2008 rom-com. The actress was wildly hilarious as Grandma Annie, proving she still had it going on at 86-years-old.
'Saturday Night Live': In 2010, the powers-that-be granted the wish of more than 500,000 Facebook users who joined a group requesting White host "SNL," and did she ever deliver. At 88, Betty became the oldest person to host the sketch series, and during her opening monologue teased that she "didn't know what Facebook was, and now that I do know what it is, I have to say, it sounds like a huge waste of time."
'Hot in Cleveland': In 2010, Betty returned to the small screen for TV Land's first scripted comedy, co-starring Valerie Bertinelli. For five years, the actress wowed TV lovers by playing a Polish caretaker with a not-so-secret wild past.
