Go Betty White! On Wednesday, 95 year old Betty White was invited to join the elite ranks of the Motion Picture Academy.
The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, which oversees the Oscars, invites new members each year. Those invited join a certain branch, such as actors, directors or costume designers. Members are then eligible to vote in the Academy Awards.
A record 744 people from 57 countries are in the Class of 2017, including White. The beloved actress and comedienne started her career in 1939.
