Mary Tyler Moore to get SAG Lifetimer

The great Mary Tyler  Moore will get the SAG Lifetime Achievement Award next month. 

I know: She hasn't gotten this already?  Dick Van Dyke will give her the award Jan. 29 during a TNT-televised ceremony, and if there's a dry eye in the house that night, then that'll be news too. 

 Here's SAG president Ken Howard's statement: 

"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. She truly embodies the spirit behind SAG’s Life Achievement Award."
