6 years in a row getting nominated for guest actress with 2 wins.  I wouldn't be surprised if that's the record for the guest category.
 
2021-01-27 5:39:05 PM  
Well damn.  I mean 94 is a pretty good run by most all standards, but damn.

RIP funny lady

I won't say it's his best but "High Anxiety" has always been my favorite Mel movie.

I am laughing and crying at the same time.

Go well, Cloris.

I will drink some warm milk tonight in her memory. Or perhaps some Ovaltine.

This is sad. I loved her in everything.

She was one of the first characters I hated and looked forward to seeing every week on The Mary Tyler Moore show.  There have been others since, but no one could make me laugh while hoping to see her get smacked by Rhoda.
 
2021-01-27 5:46:19 PM  
She was always great in everything but my favorite will always be Phyllis in The Mart Tyler Moore Show. RIP to one of the greats.

Spoiler alert - this is the end of the movie.  She won an Oscar for this role.  One of the really great movies of that era.

She was just getting into character for her funeral on American Gods.

Rest in Peace, MawMaw.

Cloris was fantastic.

Back in 1980, I was cast in a TV movie.  I spent about 5 weeks on set (and about 3 days doing ADR in post production).  I've mostly posted about my experiences with Levar Burton because he tends to come up every now and again on Fark.but Cloris Leachman played a supporting role and I had about 4 or 5 scenes with her.

She was really a sweet, gentle, funny lady.  She was kind of the on set mom for the kids in the main cast (comprised of 5 other local non-actors and me) and also served as the de facto acting coach for us since we were all untrained kids (she was by far the most senior member of the cast, having been in the business for over 30 years).

Even though I haven't seen her in over 40 years I'm still pretty broken up hearing about this.

She had the best line at any celebrity roast, at Bob Sagat's:

(Looking around the room) "For the love of god, will somebody please punch me in the face so I can see some stars?"

She was great there.  So much snark

Oh, no.  I loved her work.

Someone who's 94 dying isn't surprising. But wow, what a career. What a life. God bless her, and thanks for everything
 
2021-01-27 6:12:11 PM  
Wow. 94.  She was one of those actresses that was in so many movies I enjoyed as a kid.

RIP, Nurse Diesel.
