September 21, 1986 – The Golden Girls Wins Three Emmy Awards

“I am the lucky one who gets to come up and pick up this golden girl, but Estelle, and Rue, and Bea, and I all thank you. We’re a matched set; you can’t split us up.”

On September 21, 1986, the 38th Primetime Emmy Awards were held at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium in Pasadena, California. There, out of nine nominations (many for the same category), the NBC comedy series The Golden Girls walked away with 3 Primetime Emmys, including Outstanding Writing in a Comedy Series (for the episode “A Little Romance”), Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series for actress Betty White (who appeared in the series as Rose Nylund), and Outstanding Comedy Series. The series won the final award against such series as Cheers, The Cosby Show, Family Ties, and Kate & Allie.
