Over the course of the past month alone, we’ve lost so many iconic Hollywood figures. But one passing that hit generations of fans was the loss of Betty White. The longtime actress and venerated star of the big and small screen passed away at the age of 99 on December 31, less than three weeks shy of her 100th birthday. It’s been a month to the day since White passed away at her home. And tonight, audiences will relive their fondest memories of the star with the NBC special Celebrating Betty White: America’s Golden Girl.
White’s decades-long career went far beyond Golden Girls. The actress and animal advocate also starred in such shows as The Mary Tyler Moore Show, Hot in Cleveland and movies like The Proposal and Lake Placid, and wrote a bestselling book in the early 2010s. There’s so much about Betty White’s life that is just so astonishing, we could barely catalog all of her accomplishments here. But by watching tonight’s special, you might just glean how influential White became, and how she remained one of the most beloved stars in Hollywood. The special features stars like Jean Smart, Goldie Hawn, Drew Barrymore, and Cher — who sings her rendition of the Golden Girls theme song. So, how can you watch tonight’s special? Let’s break it down for you below.
