Betty White Is the AP’s Entertainer of the Year

Thanks in large part to a successful Internet campaign to get her Saturday Night Live, Betty White has been named the Associated Press‘s “Entertainer of the Year.” Kind of a surprise, but not really. White was all over the place this year.

102 ballots were sent out to the Associated Press‘s various entertainment affiliates to determine the winner. The vote was apparently close. White beat the cast of Glee by only two votes.

“It’s ridiculous,” White told the AP from her Los Angeles home. “They haven’t caught on to me, and I hope they never do.”

Previous winners include Tina FeyStephen Colbert and…Taylor Swift? Alrighty then.
