and Betty White
have many things in common and not just generation-wise: these two enduring, endearing and awesome TV "old" ladies have collected multiple Emmy nominations and awards.
Both were awarded for their performances in Mary Tyler Moore (1970)
, then Betty White as one of America's The Golden Girls (1985)
Rose Nylund and Cloris Leachman as the unscrupulous and embittered Ida in Malcolm in the Middle (2000)
(where White actually starred in one episode as Ida's rival)... so speaking of Rose and Ida, they couldn't have been more different.
White is America's sweetheart and the eternal figure of the loving granny while 'Frau Blücher' is less archetypal and extended the eccentricity of her characters even in real-life where she set a new record in Dancing with the Stars (2005)
. White won the hearts and Leachman the Oscar.
Extending their rivalry from that episode of Malcolm in the Middle (2000)
, the last show that reunited them, let's ask the question:Which of these two awesome old ladies, is your favorite?
