Mary Tyler Moore shines at SAG Awards; Ian Abercrombie, of ‘Seinfeld’ fame, dies

Mary Tyler Moore was honored with a lifetime achievement award at the SAGs Sunday evening, where the 75-year-old actress showed she can still turn the world on with her smile, as can Dick Van Dyke, who presented her with the award.

Moore told the audience she added her middle name, Tyler, after the Screen Actors Guild told her there were already six Mary Moores: “I was Mary Tyler Moore. I spoke it out loud. Mary Tyler Moore. It sounded right so I wrote it down on the form, and it looked right. It was right. SAG was happy, my father was happy, and tonight, after having the privilege of working in this business among the most creative and talented people imaginable, I too am happy, after all.” (AP via WaPo)
