Eight-Time Emmy Award-Winning Actress

Cloris Leachman Biography

Cloris Leachman has won numerous awards during her lengthy career. She garnered an Oscar for Best Supporting Actress in The Last Picture Show (1971), based on the best selling book by Larry McMurtry. Cloris has also received a record-setting eight primetime and one daytime Emmy Award and been nominated over 20 times for her work in television over the years, most notably as the character of neighbor/landlady/nosy friend Phyllis Lindstrom on The Mary Tyler Moore Show. The character was a fixture on the program for three years and subsequently featured in a spinoff series, Phyllis (1975-1977), for which Leachman garnered a Golden Globe award. In 1978 she won the Sarah Siddons Award for her work in Chicago theatre. She has voice acted in numerous animated films, including My Little Pony: The Movie, The Iron Giant, and most notably as the voice of the cantankerous sky pirate Dola in Hayao Miyazaki's 1986 feature Castle in the Sky. Dubbed by Disney in 1998, Leachman's performance in this film received unanimous praise.

Leachman played embittered, greedy, Slavic “Grandma Ida” on the Fox sitcom Malcolm in the Middle, for which she won two Emmy Awards, both for Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series (once in 2002, then again in 2006). She was nominated for the same role in that category for six consecutive years. She was nominated for a SAG Award for her role as the wine-soaked, former jazz singer and grandmother Evelyn in the Sony feature Spanglish opposite Adam Sandler and Tea Leoni.  That same year she appeared with Sandler again, in the remake of The Longest Yard. She also appeared in Disney's comedy Sky High starring Kurt Russell.

Cloris just completed three films, the first being: New York I Love You, with Eli Wallach and a brilliant list of actors & directors too numerous to mention here. The second is "American Cowslip" with Val Kilmer, Peter Falk, Rip Torn and Diane Ladd. Finally, a remake of "The Women" with Meg Ryan, Annette Bening, Candace Bergen, Bette Midler, Debra Messing, Eva Mendez, and Jada Pinkett Smith, to be released in October 2008. In Leachman's performance alongside Sir Ben Kingsley and Annette Benning in the HBO special Mrs. Harris she earned a 2006 Emmy nomination for outstanding supporting actress in a miniseries or TV movie as well as a SAG Award nomination for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Television Movie or Miniseries. On May 14, 2006, she was awarded an honorary Doctorate in Fine Arts from DrakeUniversity. Cloris is in the process of writing her memoir to be published in the Spring of 2009. She is currently Bustin' Out across the nation performing her one woman show while supporting animal rights & welfare.
