Mary Tyler Moore will receive the 2011 Screen Actors Guild Life Achievement Award. The award will be presented Jan. 29 at the 18th annual SAG Awards in Los Angeles. ”Mary Tyler Moore won our hearts as Laura Petrie and Mary Richards, our respect as her production company became synonymous with quality television, our awe as she tackled difficult subject matter in film and on Broadway, and our admiration she turned her public recognition into a catalyst to draw attention to critical and deeply personal health and social issues,” said SAG president Ken Howard. ”She truly embodies the spirit behind SAG’s Life Achievement Award, and we are honored to proclaim her as its 48th recipient.” Moore won two Emmys for The Dick Van Dyke Show and four for The Mary Tyler Moore Show.
