The actress has had a long and varied career in her decades on the screen, and is set to be honored in January by the Screen Actors Guild with its Lifetime Achievement Award.
Below, THR highlights five of her most iconic roles.
5. That ’70s Show (2006): In the later years of her career, Moore has guest-starred on everything from Hot in Cleveland and Lipstick Jungle to King of the Hill, but in 2006 she had a recurring role as Christine St. George, anchor of morning show What’s Up Wisconsin on the throwback sitcom.
4. Stolen Babies (1993): Her Lifetime drama about a Tennessee welfare worker who learns that the head of a local adoption agency (Moore) is running a black-market baby ring, earned the actress her most recent Emmy.
3. Ordinary People (1980): Moore received an Oscar nomination for her portrayal of a bitter mother in the film co-starring Donald Sutherland and Judd Hirsch, and also won the Golden Globe.
2. The Dick Van Dyke Show (1961-66): This was the show that put Moore on the map. She received her first Emmy nomination in 1963 before winning in both 1964 and ’66 for her portrayal of happy homemaker Laurie Petrie. She also took home the Golden Globe for Best Female TV Star in 1965.
1. Mary Tyler Moore (1970-77): Dick Van Dyke may have made her a star, but the actress’ eponymous program turned her into a comedy legend. Her performance as a plucky TV producer was nominated for both a Golden Globe and an Emmy seven years in a row (she won three Emmys and one Globe).
