10 Golden Girls Memes That Are Too Hilarious For Words

As timeless as the day it first aired in 1985, The Golden Girls was a sitcom that showcased the different perspectives of four women of a certain age as they tackled love, careers, and friendship living together in Miami. The refreshing approach the show took to the main cast's "golden years," mainly that it wasn't the stagnant period other television programs made it out to be, meant that Dorothy, Blanche, Rose, and Sophia weren't shackled with the usual corny jokes about aging.

With the immense comedic talent of Bea Arthur, Rue McClanahan, Betty White, and Estelle Getty, there was never a dull moment for seven seasons. Between Dorothy's withering comebacks, Rose's ditzy stories St. Olaf stories, Blanche's vivacious banter, and Sophia's thorny pragmatism, there was a lot of material for memes. Here are the 10 most hilarious memes inspired by the Golden Girls that are pure comedic gold!

Ranking the 10 Most Terrifying Gators and Crocs in Movie History in Honor of ‘Crawl’
In the new horror movie “Crawl,” a pack of enormous alligators invades a sleepy Florida town during a violent hurricane and proceeds to rip the cast apart, limb by limb. These nasty gators aren’t the first critters of their kind to terrify audiences, however. Here’s our list of ravenous reptiles, ranked in order from scariest to silliest.

1) Alligator (1980)

Two-time Oscar-nominated screenwriter John Sayles penned this gruesomely entertaining monster mash about a baby gator named Ramón who gets flushed down a toilet and mutates into a 36-foot behemoth lurking in the Chicago sewer system. When his appetite for human flesh gets the better of him, Ramón bursts through the sidewalk and chows down on a horde of terrified locals. Featuring colorful performances from cult film superstars Robert Forster and Henry Silva, plus witty direction from the ever-dependable Lewis Teague, “Alligator” is more than just the best rampaging reptile movie

Killer Reptile Movies To See Before Crawl Movie

Anyone a fan of giant Crocodiles? Our watery friends have been making an appearance as of late in the news, as well as the upcoming film Crawl.

In Florida, the state has averaged just under 10 alligator bites a year since 2010, marking a total of 85 bites in that time span up to 2018. Of the 85 bites, three were fatal but most were listed as “major” under Fwc statistics. In May of this year, a woman was bitten while swimming in Fay Lake Wilderness Park in Port St. John, Florida.

In Crawl, when a massive hurricane hits her Florida hometown, Haley (Kaya Scodelario) ignores evacuation orders to search for her missing father (Barry Pepper). Finding him gravely injured in the crawl space of their family home, the two become trapped by quickly encroaching floodwaters. As time runs out to escape the strengthening storm, Haley and her father discover that the rising water level

10 Of Betty White's Most Iconic Roles

Hollywood icon Betty White's career as an actress began in 1945 when she starred in a short film titled Time To Kill. Today, the entertainer holds the record for having the longest television career of any female actress. Unarguably, Betty White is one iconic lady who could probably teach us all quite a few things. She turned 97 last January but shows no signs of slowing down. Her career as an actress is still as vibrant as ever.

With a collection of countless awards, including a Grammy, three American Comedy Awards, and three Screen Actors Guild Awards, Betty White's career is beyond impressive and one that generations have admired for decades.

Even though she is arguably the queen of Hollywood, Betty White maintains her endearingly humble demeanor, and that's another reason why we love her so much. She holds an arsenal of unforgettable roles under her belt, yet she never has lost her class.

10 Actors We All Forgot Appeared On The Golden Girls

The Golden Girls was an incredibly progressive show that was far ahead of its time. First airing on TV back in 1985, the series would conclude its seven-season-long run in 1992. Starring Betty White, Bea Arthur, Estelle Getty, and Rue McClanahan, the series was a beloved piece of sitcom history.

The characters of Rose, Blanche, Dorothy, and the matriarch of the group, Sophia, were all deeply praised for being so fleshed out and well-developed.

The Golden Girls is definitely timeless, and unlike many other sitcoms from that era, it has aged quite well. It was a rare show that didn't hold back or stick to stereotypes when portraying older women. The Golden Girls always delivered in the comedy department, while remaining sophisticated and classy.

Over the years that the series was on the air, several famous and notable actors would appear, portraying recurring or guest roles. Let's take a look at ten

Generally speaking, a fourth entry in a franchise isn’t usually something to get excited about – for every Avengers: Endgame and Mad Max: Fury Road, there’s a Superman IV: The Quest for Peace, a Jaws: The Revenge or a Men In Black: International. In the case of the Toy Story movies, the previous film already gave Woody and co a perfect ending, so what could a fourth instalment possibly bring to the table? Happily, Toy Story 4

‘Saturday Night Live’ is aiming to win a comedy guest acting Emmy for the fourth year in a row

‘Saturday Night Live’ is aiming to win a comedy guest acting Emmy for the fourth year in a row
The comedy guest categories have been Emmy gold mines for “Saturday Night Live” since hosts were allowed to compete there 10 years ago. The show has collected 10 victories in that timespan — five in each category — and it’s bidding to continue its streak of winning at least one of the two races for the fourth consecutive year.

Since 2009, there have only been two years in which “SNL” did not win at least one of the two guest categories, 2013 and 2015. Melissa Leo (“Louie”) and Bob Newhart (“The Big Bang Theory”) prevailed in 2013, with the latter finally winning his first Emmy, and Joan Cusack (“Shameless”) and Bradley Whitford (“Transparent”) triumphed in 2015. Cusack had the rare fortune of no female “SNL” hosts being nominated that year — something that has also only happened once, in 2010, on the comedy guest actor side.

Can the ‘Queer Eye’ Fab Five make history as the first non-competition hosts to win Emmys?

Can the ‘Queer Eye’ Fab Five make history as the first non-competition hosts to win Emmys?
Can “Queer Eye” make Emmy history? The Fab Five from the Netflix series — Bobby Berk, Karamo Brown, Tan France, Antoni Porowski and Jonathan Van Ness — are contenders for Best Reality Host. But here’s the thing: no one has ever won Best Reality Host for a non-competition program.

Since Best Reality Host was established in 2008, I have found it unusual that the category has been almost entirely reserved for the hosts of competition shows. For the first four years there were only competition hosts in the running, with Jeff Probst (“Survivor”) winning every time. A non-competitive show finally broke through in 2012 with Betty White‘s first of three nominations for the prank series “Off Their Rockers.” Then Steve Harvey made the cut for the children’s talent show “Little Big Shots” in 2016. Martha Stewart and Snoop Dogg were nominated for “Martha & Snoop’s Potluck Dinner Party” a year later in

Which of these 5 ‘Saturday Night Live’ women will receive Emmy nominations for Best Comedy Guest Actress? Give us your predictions
Five female “Saturday Night Live” hosts have been included on the 2019 Emmy ballot for their work this past season, up from the four that NBC previously announced. The lone surprise is Sandra Oh, who hosted the March 30 episode. It’s possible NBC made adjustments before the entry deadline or that Oh was submitted by her personal reps. While a whopping 11 men contend for guest acting on the Emmy ballot, there were also way more male hosts (14) throughout Season 44 than female hosts (seven), which helps explain the gender lopsidedness.

Amy Poehler’s Directorial Debut Is a Big ‘Saturday Night Live’ Reunion
Having thrived as an actress, comedian, writer and producer, directing may seem like a natural next step for Amy Poehler. But as she told Variety at the world premiere of “Wine Country,” she decided to take the plunge for one reason: “The ladies said yes. The end. Period!”

Once it was suggested, all of the women felt instinctively that this was a story they wanted to tell. “We were really excited to show what female friendship looks like at a certain age, and to show old friends and how they interact and what they talk about,” she explained. “And just to have a chance to work with these legends — they’re all amazing.”

With Poehler behind the camera, an all-star ensemble of sketch actresses in front of it, and fellow “Saturday Night Live” alums Emily Spivey and Liz Cackowski writing the screenplay, the gender breakdown for “Wine Country” was very

Sitcom sweetheart to celeb chef: Valerie Bertinelli trades quips for quiche and gets her 1st individual Emmy nomination [Exclusive Video Interview]
Valerie Bertinelli first became a household name in 1975 when she played Barbara Cooper on the CBS sitcom “One Day at a Time” for nine seasons. While Mackenzie Phillips as older sis Julie was the rebellious daughter in a household headed by Bonnie Franklin‘s divorced mom, Bertinelli’s upbeat character was more adept at making wisecracks. She would earn two Golden Globes as Best TV Supporting Actress but never competed for an Emmy. Even when she starred in a string of popular TV movies in the ’80s and ’90s with such ripe titles as “I Was a Mail Order Bride,” “The Seduction of Gina” and “Shattered Vows,” she was overlooked by TV’s top acting honor.

Bertinelli, 59, would spend three years starting in 2001 as a heavenly being named Gloria on “Touched by an Angel” and more recently appeared on TV Land’s “Hot in Cleveland” for five seasons until 2015 alongside of Betty White,
