Mary Tyler Moore will receive the Screen Actors Guild Life Achievement Award at January’s SAG Awards ceremony. 

“Mary Tyler Moore won our hearts as Laura Petrie and Mary Richards, our respect as her production company became synonymous with quality television, our awe as she tackled difficult subject matter in film and on Broadway, and our admiration she turned her public recognition into a catalyst to draw attention to critical and deeply personal health and social issues,” said SAG president Ken Howard, in a statement. “She truly embodies the spirit behind SAG’s Life Achievement Award, and we are honored to proclaim her as its 48th recipient.”

Moore, he helped redefine the image of the American woman on shows like The Dick Van Dyke Show and The Mary Tyler Moore Show, has won seven Emmys, a Tony, and she was nominated for an Academy Award. The 18th annual SAG Awards will air live on TNT and TBS on Jan. 29.

    I know SAG stands for Screen Actor’s Guild, but they need another name – SAG Lifetime Acheivement sounds like an award for someone so old they literally sag. Bad mental picture.

    She took off her bra and won the SAG award.

      an icon long overdue for recognition gets an award and this is the lame crap you come up with!


    $ says they draw the overrated Tina Fey out of maternity leave to give her this award/

      I’d rather see Betty White give her the award.

  • Rusty Shackleford

    They should change it to the Film Actors Guild.

    “Moore, he helped…”? TYPO.

    • LMFAO

      It’s EW not rocket science.

  • Melinda

    Love Mary! Both shows were amazing, great writing/casts. I actually have a Laura Petrie flip in my hair right now :)

  • Brian

    I am extremely far beyond ecstatic knowing this, I am walking on air right now.

  • The Truth

    I’m 22. Is it just me or does anyone else think Tyler Perry when they read the name Mary Tyler Moore?

    • Lily

      @The Truth – how can you be the “truth” at age 22? And maybe kids your age do think of Tyler, but hopefully not all 22 year olds are so shallow that they have not heard of the legendary MTM.

      • @The Truth

        ….it’s just you.

    • Brian

      Absolutely not, are you crazy?

        Matt, I think the overriding plricnpie here is lets not break this thing . Bruins fans are really hopeful for this team and they just want the last minute details finished up without too much upheaval.

    • The Truth

      FYI, I dislike him and haven’t seen a single one of his movies. But I’ve heard and seen a lot of him in the media. Certainly a lot more than I have Ms (Mrs?) Moore.

      • @The Truth

        Mary Tyler Moore is an icon! She is one of the best comedic actresses ever on television!!!

    • Rich

      Who’s Tyler Perry?

  • bart greenhut

    she’s great EXCEPT -a 45 year old face on a 75 year old body is a little shocking. She proves the saying that “a slave to one’s vanity is a slave with many masters”. Not a good message, not to be applauded..
