SAG Awards 2012 Pay Tribute to Mary Tyler Moore

We’re in the throes of Hollywood’s awards season, and actors added more weight to their mantles last night after the Screen Actors Guild bestowed its set of statuettes.

Viola Davis won big for her role in The Help, beating out both Meryl Streep and Michelle Williams for the best actress award, while Jean Dujardin won the best actor award for his role in silent black-and-white film The Artist. 82-year-old Christopher Plummer took home best supporting actor for his role in Beginners, an apparent favorite among his peers. 

Mary Tyler Moore was arguably a focus of the evening, winning a lifetime achievement award from the guild. Dick Van Dyke, who played the actress’s husband on the Dick Van Dyke show, introduced Moore and touted her humanitarian work as well as her time on screen—for which she received a standing ovation from the crowd.
