Watch Bea Arthur look like she wants to murder Betty White

Oh man. She was NOT happy about this Emmy. YOWSO.

No she doesn't. Shut up, OP.

She looked fine. Betty was gracious.

While we do know (from Rue and Betty's books) that Bea was pissed off at not winning, I don't see any giveaway of that in her facial expression here - it looks like a neutrally pleasant Bea Arthur facial expression to me.

In fact, she looked better than a lot of women there that night. Like John Malkovich.

She eventually won in '88, and had already won for Maude in '77. She was nominated 9 times for a Golden Globe however, and never won one of those.

Poor Estelle was the only one not nominated, but Betty worked her in. Hooray.

Estelle was nominated for Supporting Actress, r6.

I was serving Grade-A bitchface in that clip.

I also let one rip when they announced Rue's name.

Betty does confirm that Bea disliked her. She says it's because her positive attitude rubbed Bea the wrong way. What a stupid, cranky reason to hate someone! Sounds like Bea was pretty cunty, a word that Rue said Bea once called Betty.

Is that Cybill Shepherd touching Betty's shoulder when it's announced? Not that Betty acknowledged it!

Has to be said, Bea did look much happier when Rue won the following year than she did here! Obviously they were friends from the Maude days

There would have been no GG w/o Bea. There would have been no Rue McClanahan w/o Bea. They all won Emmys, and certainly Bea would be happy about the success of her show.

How any of them beat Shelley is beyond me.

Any quotes from Betty and Rue's books stating that Bea was pissed?

Funny how they worked Betty into Bea's clip.

Rue tells the best Bea story ever, at the link. It's just the first 45 seconds of the clip, and it was at Bea's memorial.
