Just in time for Tomlin’s SAG Lifetime Achievement Award this Sunday, we’ve selected some of the comedienne’s best quotes.
Lauded as “America’s New Queen of Comedy” back in 1977, actress Lily Tomlin was just getting started. Her multi-hyphenate career in Broadway, film, television and beyond has spanned close to 50 years and counting. Known for films like Nashville, 9 to 5, All of Me, Flirting With Disaster and more recently Grandma, as well as her one-woman Broadway shows Appearing Nitely and The Search for Signs of Intelligent Life in the Universe, Tomlin currently stars on the Emmy-nominated Netflix series Grace and Frankie, opposite Jane Fonda.
Tomlin’s accomplishments are wide-ranging; she’s won four Emmys, two Tonys, two Peabodys, and even a Grammy for best comedy album. And to add to that, the Screen Actors Guild Awards will be honoring Miss Tomlin this Sunday with a SAG Lifetime Achievement Award.
In celebration of the witty, hilarious, and absurdly unique comedienne, here are some of her best quotes.
