Mary Tyler Moore's SAG Lifetime Achievement Award Speech

Mary Tyler Moore, the iconic actress who turned the world on with her smile and changed the television landscape forever with "The Mary Tyler Moore Show", has died at the age of 80.

"The Mary Tyler Moore Show" was never No. 1 in all its seven years, Moore said. They split their time between Dutchess County and Manhattan. The series finale was the seventh most watched show during that week. And one thing the show had going for it was a sense of timeliness.

Later in her career, she was featured on sitcoms including That '70s Show and Hot in Cleveland.

It was such an indelible moment that the city of Minneapolis put up a bronze statue of Moore tossing the 'tam near the very spot where it was shot on the busy Nicollet Mall in 2002. And while she was asserting herself, she also didn't make Dick Van Dyke look like a dummy.

Van Dyke said in a 2015 interview that diabetes has taken its toll on Moore and that she "isn't well at all". We were good friends and I miss her already.

She'd also eventually win the heart of Grant Tinker, an advertising man she met on the set and who became her second husband.

Gross noted that sponsors were anxious she would look "brazen".

"Mary Tyler Moore's humor, style and vulnerability have had a profound influence on me as a television creator and on every woman I know working in television to upend expectations of traditional femininity", Lena Dunham said in a statement. In 1978, her sister, Elizabeth, died at age 21 from a drug overdose.

She won a Tony for her performance in Whose Life is it Anyway? in 1980 and received an Oscar nod for Ordinary People. But the show's most acclaimed episode features the absurd death of Chuckles the Clown, and finds Mary and the rest of the WJM News gang at Chuckles' funeral, where Mary gets a case of the giggles.

The role earned her two Emmys. But the episode is also about Mary Richards as a person: serious, smart, sometimes forbiddingly flawless, but only because she doesn't feel comfortable letting her feelings show in public the way her mostly-male colleagues do. The decision was made to end the show to avoid its legacy being tarnished.

Original Story: Mary Tyler Moore is now in a CT hospital under grave condition, TMZ reports. "Both families are happy, too". When Mary went on the pill in season three, it was huge.

That was big news on TV at the time.
