Congratulations to Mary Tyler Moore on receiving the SAG Lifetime Achievement Award Sunday night.

Mary rose to fame as Laura Petrie while starring in the hit 1960s CBS sitcom, "The Dick Van Dyke Show." In the '70s, she portrayed 30-something career woman Mary Richards in the long-running series, "The Mary Tyler Moore Show." And at 75 years old, Moore continues to act. She recently made a guest appearance on the Betty White series, "Hot in Cleveland."

It was very fitting that Mary’s television husband, Dick Van Dyke presented her SAG award on Sunday. Moore described her former co-star, Van Dyke, as her "biggest fan," telling Reuters, "He would encourage me because it was the first time I had done any real comedy. And I said to Dick, 'I'm so nervous,' and he said, 'Mary, you just do what your instinct tells you and don't be afraid of moments where you think you'll look like a blubbering idiot. Just do it to the best of your ability and you're going to be fine.'" Mary Tyler Moore has received seven Emmys, three Golden Globes and a Tony award. Of course she’s a great actor – she’s from Brooklyn!

The 18th annual Screen Actors Guild Awards were presented in 15 movie and TV acting categories in Los Angeles, and aired live on TNT and TBS.

The show aired without a host, but had an A-list group of presenters to announce the winners, including George Clooney, Meryl Streep, Brad Pitt, Michelle Williams, Ben Kingsley, Owen Wilson and Kenneth Branagh.
