The organization honored the actress for her body of work, which included the unforgettable roles on "The Mary Tyler Moore Show" and "The Dick Van Dyke Show."
Mary Tyler Moore’s acting roles have influenced many actors and inspired a lot of women to go out and take charge of their lives and their career. The Screen Actors Guild honored Moore’s body of work with its Lifetime Achievement award at Sunday’s awards ceremony at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles.
Dick Van Dyke, who played Moore’s husband on 60s’ series The Dick Van Dyke Show presented Moore with the award. During her acceptance speech, she said that after a long acting career, she’s "happy after all" – a play off the opening theme song for her hit 70s show, The Mary Tyler Moore Show.
