Default Betty White’s 12 Most Popular Roles Ranked From Worst To Best

https://www.fame10.com/entertainment...streamview=all

Betty White is a true Hollywood treasure who has been entertaining and endearing audiences for decades. Although some stars seem to step back from the spotlight as they get older, for Betty White, she just keeps the roles coming and seems to only be getting funnier and funnier. Over many years, White has starred in everything from television series to movies, not to mention game show hosting, and several appearances and guest starring roles in popular shows. Now, there is no way White could ever do a bad job, but take a look back through her incredible career with 12 of her most popular roles ranked from worst to best!

12. Rose Nylund – The Golden Palace
Rose Nylund was Betty White’s most well-known role, and it won’t be the last time it appears on the list. While White as Rose Nylund was amazing, it didn’t go over as well in The Golden Girls‘ spinoff The Golden Palace. The Golden Palace was missing an important piece without Bea Arthur as Dorothy, and as a result, the chemistry that audiences adored in The Golden Girls was missing, and even White couldn’t make the series work. After The Golden Palace was canceled after only one season, White said, “It would have been a wonderful idea for three other people, but it just didn’t work without Dorothy.”

1. Rose Nylund – The Golden Girls
There was never any doubt what role would land at number one! Rose Nylund has become an absolutely iconic television character all thanks to Betty White’s epic performance. The Golden Girls ran for seven seasons from 1985-1992 and White along with Bea Arthur, Ruth McClanahan, and Estelle Getty formed the perfect TV foursome, giving endless laughs and good times to audiences. ”They told me that I was to play it straight, to pretend that I took everything for its literal surface meaning,” White said in a 2005 interview. ”So my character reference was the fact that if somebody said, ‘Oh, I could eat a horse!’ Rose would immediately call the ASPCA. I loved Rose and had such fun playing her.” It wasn’t just audiences who loved White’s Rose Nylund though, the actress was nominated for an Emmy award for each of the seven seasons, but unfortunately, she only won once for the show’s first season.

Confused as to why anyone would see that as Betty's "worst role" when it was the show itself that didn't do well. Her acting was just as good, and some of the episodes of Golden Palace were actually very good.

Either way, singling out Betty White's "role" just to take a jab at Golden Palace seems ridiculous. Interesting read though.
