88-year-old Betty White won an Emmy Award for best guest actress in a comedy series for her turn as "Saturday Night Live" host.

The honor came Saturday at the creative arts ceremony that is precursor to the main Emmy show on August 29th.

The trophy is the fifth prime-time Emmy received by White, according to the TV academy. Her previous honors came for classic sitcoms including "The Mary Tyler Moore Show" and "The Golden Girls."

Neil Patrick Harris was a presenter and winner, taking the trophy for best guest actor in a comedy series for his appearance on "Glee." The guest acting trophies for drama series went to John Lithgow for "Dexter" and Ann-Margret for "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit," which has won Emmy acting honors for six consecutive years.

Harris, who stars in "How I Met Your Mother," shared in another award. The Tony Awards show, which he hosted to critical acclaim, was recognized as best special class program.

The creative arts ceremony will air Friday on the E! channel.

Next Sunday's 62nd annual prime-time Emmy ceremony, with Jimmy Fallon as host, will air live on NBC.
