Home Celebrity Mary Tyler Moore Gets SAG Lifetime Achievement Award

Everyone loves Mary Tyler Moore, so it’s no shock: the beloved TV star will receive the Screen Actors Guild Lifetime Achievement Award this January. Mary, of course, has many Emmy awards and nominations for her own show and of course “The Dick Van Dyke Show,” and a 1981 Oscar nomination for “Ordinary People.” (She lost to Sissy Spacek, for “Coal Miner’s Daughter.”) It’s great that Mary’s getting the SAG award, although I did think that this award was more for character actors, long time vets who’d never actually gotten an award. For example, Mary’s cast mates on her old show, Betty White and Ed Asner, got the SAG in the last few years. But what the heck–Mary deserves all good things…

…Other awards news from yesterday: Warren Beatty is getting a Lifetime Achievement Award from BAFTA/LA on November 30th. Warren is getting ready to launch his Howard Hughes movie, and is allegedly casting it now. One of Hollywood’s smartest guys, Beatty has an Oscar for Best Director of “Reds,” and many other accolades…

What do you think?
