Leachman is a TV icon, stretching back to her days on The Mary Tyler Moore Show and its spin-off Phyllis, in which she starred as the title character. At 84, she’s still going strong — last year she made a surprisingly deep run on Dancing with the Stars, and this fall she’s back on the big screen in You Again. She returns to the small one as well: On Raising Hope she plays Maw Maw, the daft grandmom in a dysfunctional family that takes in a newborn. Playing grannies on Fox sitcoms has been good for Leachman: During her six-season run on Malcolm in the Middle, she garnered Emmy nominations every year, and took home two wins.
