Betty White won Creative Arts Emmy Award as Outstanding Guest Actress in a comedy series for her turn as “Saturday Night Live” host. Betty White was asked to host “Saturday Night Live” after a social networking campaign raised the issue. The actress was not present to receive her Emmy Award. The “Saturday Night Live” head writer Seth Meyer took to Twitter where he congratulated Betty White on winning Emmy Award for hosting the show. Apart from Betty White several other actors and actresses bagged the Creative Arts Emmy Awards like Neil Patrick Harris for his special guest star appearance on “Glee”, John Lithgow for “Dexter” and Ann-Margret for “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit”, to name a few.

It can be called as a prelude to Primetime Emmy Award, which will take place on August 29, 2010.
