Actress Mary Tyler Moore dies at 80

Actress Mary Tyler Moore has died of pneumonia, her longtime publicist said Wednesday. She was 80. One of the biggest stars of the 1960s and '70s, Moore appeared in countless TV shows and movies, including The Dick Van Dyke Show; Ordinary People, for which she received an Oscar nomination; and the eponymous The Mary Tyler Moore Show, one of the first shows to feature a single, working woman, which turned Moore into an icon for the feminist movement.

Throughout her career, Moore won seven Emmys. She was also a producer and an advocate for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.
