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.
