Actress Betty White will receive a lifetime achievement award at the Daytime Emmy Awards on April 26 to honor her work on "The Golden Girls," "The Mary Tyler Moore Show," "Hot in Cleveland," and "Betty White’s Off Their Rockers."

Entertainment Weekly reported that White has earned 5 Emmys, 21 Emmy nominations, and four Golden Globe nominations since she began acting in the 1950's.

"Betty White is an American institution," said Bob Mauro, president of the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences.

"Betty's career as a female pioneer has followed television from literally the beginning of the medium, winning her first Emmy Award in 1952 [for "Life With Elizabeth"], to the digital-streaming future, winning again in 2010. She is one of the most beloved female performers in the history of television."

According to People magazine, White, 93, will join an exclusive club of people who've received the lifetime award, including Oprah Winfrey, Barbara Walters, Merv Griffin, and Regis Philbin.

"Betty White is the 'First Lady of Game Shows,'" said Senior Vice President, Daytime, David Michaels.

"Betty was the darling of 'Password,' where she met the love of her life, Allen Ludden, and a favorite on 'Match Game,' 'The $25,000 Pyramid,' and countless others. She was the first woman to receive an Emmy Award for Outstanding Game Show Host in 1983 for the show, 'Just Men.'"
