Cloris Leachman was an Academy Award, nine-time Emmy and Golden Globe winning American actress of stage, film and television. She has won eight primetime Emmy Awards — more than any other female performer — and one Daytime Emmy Award.

She also earned an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress in 1971 for her role as Ruth Popper in The Last Picture Show.

She also starred as Maw Maw in the television sitcom Raising Hope, from 2010-2014.

Leachman is best known for playing the nosy, self-centered and manipulative landlady Phyllis Lindstrom on Mary Tyler Moore and later on the spin-off series Phyllis.

Her additional film credits include the Mel Brooks films Young Frankenstein and High Anxiety, as well as American Cowslip, Ponyo, Inglorious Basterds, New York, I Love You, Expecting Mary and the upcoming The Oogieloves in the Big Balloon Adventure and The Fields.

She became popular in latter years for her recurring role on the hit TV series Malcolm in the Middle and appearances on The Comedy Central Roast of Bob Saget, Love Takes Wings, The Office, Phineas and Ferb and Hawthorne.

Leachman competed on Dancing with the Stars in 2008 and served as Grand Marshal of the 2009 New Year's Tournament of Roses Parade and Rose Bowl Game in Pasadena, CA, where she presided over the 120th annual parade and the 95th Rose Bowl football game.

In March 2010, Leachman became a published author with the release of her bestselling memoir, Cloris: My Autobiography.

On 27 January, 2021, Leachman died in her sleep from natural causes, at her home in Encinitas, California. She was 94.
