SAG Awards Mary Tyler Moore Receives Lifetime Achievement Award: Dick Van Dyke presents the Lifetime Achievement Award to his former “Dick Van Dyke Show” co-star Mary Tyler Moore, delivering a heartfelt speech citing her screen work and humanitarian work. Moore received a standing ovation from the crowd.
Moore began her speech by recalling how she had to alter her name from “Mary Moore” due to multiple listings of the same name in the SAG roster.
“I, too, am happy after all,” Moore said while wrapping up her speech.
