    One of the best ensembles in tv history. I really can’t choose one over the other. Who is your favorite and why?

    It is definitely a hard choice but I opted for Dorothy, primarily because I usually prefer dry wit and also her pretentious and reactions to the zany antics of the other three makes her just as hilarious.

    I adore Betty White, but Rose’s shtick got old for me after a while.

    Rue McClanahan was in many ways the show’s comedic highlight if you examine a lot of episodes, but Blanche suffers, at least in my book, for being a tad too unlikable on some ocassions.

    Estelle Getty was definitely convincing as Sophia and also hilarious but she too also catered to the same shtick.

    I suppose you could say they ALL did that, but for me, Dorothy/Bea Arthur remained the most entertaining for me and plus I have always had an intense respect for her.

    I can’t vote on this because all 4 were the best! 🙂

    If you asked the members of the Academy, they’d probably say Betty White, considering she was the only cast-member to be nominated every season the show was on the air.

    But it’s a tough choice between Rue and Bea. I was going to say Rue without a doubt, but then I read a comment above that mentioned Dorothy’s faces at the antics on this show, and it brought back so many hilarious memories of this show. Then, you have Rue, who was hilarious this show, and I instantly think of the season 5 episode where she was writing a book, and didn’t sleep for days, and that hilarious scene in the kitchen with “all of the little sunshines in a bag”. It’s just so hard to choose, but I’d have to choose Bea.

    Estelle Getty was also nominated all seven seasons.

    My choice is Beatrice Arthur.  She was the only performer who didn’t suffer once the writing started to decline starting at season 4.  Getty, although great in the first couple of years really didn’t have the chops to make her character even a little bit interesting the last couple of seasons.  LOVE White & McClanahan (both are terrific actors) but they also let cariacture become the heart of their characters once the original writers started bailing, but not nearly as bad as Getty.  Arthur was in top form no matter how lame the writing was the last couple of years.

    I don’t agree with some of you. I believe that all of them were amazing in all 7 seasons and the writing was the best writing ever on television. Fantastic show….. there will never be another like it.

    My vote was for Bea Arthur.  Bea can do a lot with words, but can also do a lot with facial expressions.  She excelled at the double and triple takes.

    Bea Arthur, I can’t even begin with how much I love/respect this woman.

    Estelle Getty also was nominated each year that The Golden Girls was on the air.  Estelle should have won in 1991 over BeBe Neuwirth from Cheers.
