The 2011 Matrix Awards were held at the Waldorf-Astoria on Monday, and it was a chance to see the top women in media honor the achievements of each other.

The Matrix Awards take a broad look at the media industry, and recipients include women in television, advertising, public relations, and technology. “I didn’t even know I was in the media until today!” said Broadway actress and Matrix award recipient Idina Menzel.

The lifetime achievement award was given, deservedly, to Betty White, who spoke via satellite from Los Angeles. “It’s wonderful to be a role model at 89… it’s wonderful to be anything at 89,” said White with characteristic good humor.

Her advice to other women: keep doing what you are passionate about, said White, “long after people assume you’re dead.”
