I would love to see "Ernestine" dusted off and call the White House. Maybe as a guest spot on SNL.
I was at your performance last night. Thanks for the laughs- we all needed that.
We all appreciated the Screen Actors remarks. We are the EX...expatriates-exodus-exit-exile. We must take a break from dtrumf-topia. And we have been priced out from our rooms and groceries. So we are gathering up boats in need of repair and AgroEcology equipment ( org gardening, solar, wind, water tools etc). Preparing to sail-a-way to a friendly progressive SANE island. If you are "home-lesser" / country-less and desire a fresh start and a light footprint, join us...
Who do I contact to bring your show to my town. Greater Cincinnati area has a fantastic new space for you.
I feel like I know you. We both grew up in Detroit. I went over the West Forrest St. bridge over the John Lodge Xway and worked as a waitress at Mona's Restaurant on the corner for a time. It was in the early 60's when the Cass Corridor was my stomping grounds. When I saw the skit, "Juke and Opal" on TV I realized you were doing tragedy disguised as comedy. Brilliant. We were both featured in MS. Magazine 1976. You on the cover and I was in the centerfold. I have been a lifetime fan. I wonder if you will read this. Thanks, Joann
Saw the article in the ubiquitous Parade magazine. Thank you for the wonderful comedy for so long. Congratulations to you & Jane! Your fan, Jack 585-813-9307 (in case you're ever in Western NY & need a ride or a place to stay )
Lily, Although I mostly bump into you boarding the airplane, headed to baggage or some such, I wanted to tell you congrats on your SAG award! Besides being a great actor your humanitarian work, especially LGBTQ, is near to my heart. Thank you for sharing your talent, time and resources with all of us. Much love, Grant
I hope you see this Lily.. I watched you receive the SAG Award last night, and thought: She looks like her mother! I lived next to your mom on Park Ave. in Paducah. She was my Granny. Every time I see you, it reminds me of my wonderful Granny! She was so special to me. I love Grace and Frankie, want to thank you for being you!! I still have your signed album.. 😁 Karla Garcia
Dear Ms. Tomlin: I wouldn't normally be so formal to someone with whose comedy and dramatic work I grew up. I first saw you / heard you as Ernestine, saw you on Broadway in 1986, saw you in many movies, LOVED-LOVED-LOVED you on The West Wing. NOBODY could have replaced Mrs. Landingham except YOU as Debbie/Debby (?), and watching all those great Sorkin-alumni on Grace and Frankie is just...a pleasure I can't possibly do justice with words. (Deep down, though, I wish you'd have been cast as Martin's ex-wife...During the first few episodes/table reads could you even keep a straight face with President Bartlet as a big queen?) As a trans woman who was out as LBT before it was fashionable, I looked to your being out in the 1980s as astoundingly cool, brave, and...as a role model when I desperately needed one. After your masterful speech at the SAG awards last night, I just teared up at how great your work is, and how you weaved a relatively-subtle political message into humor. I'm a baby-standup (only six years in), but I'm inspired by you, among not just LGBT warriors, but funny people, sincere people, and the super-cool-aunt with whom I wish I'd grown up for real. 🙂 THANK YOU FOR YOUR WONDERFULNESS!
Good morning to you. My name is Bradley Murphy. Ever since I was very young (born in 1987), your films put a smile on my face and laughter was never in short supply. Films like "9 To 5", and "The Beverly Hillbillies" were brilliant and as I got older and my understanding of the world developed they became even more entertaining(I finally understood the jokes my parents were laughing at). I even found your earlier recordings as Ernestine and the Spokesperson for "Grrrrr", and play them for friends to share the the obvious love you still exude for your craft. Grace and Frankie is purely genius and if you can please share my praises and appreciation to your co-stars. So in closing, you've been one of the most inspirational and influential role models I've ever had. Thank you for being amazing. Respectfully, Bradley D Murphy II
Congratulations on your SAG Award. Once again you made me laugh., I think you taught me to laugh @TV on Laugh In. I will always be grateful to you, you are my heroine.
To the patron saint of telephone operators everywhere: When I was a Pennsylvania teenager watching you in the '60s, I could not have predicted I would in a short time be working for Pacific Telephone as an operator. We wished we could have said things Ernestine said ("We don't care, we don't have to..."). Congratulations on your SAG honors!
CONGRATULATIONS on your LIFETIME award from SAG?AFTRA ! WELL DESERVED !
well..missed last years birthday..so let me be the first to wish you happy birthday for 2017..just incase i forget again..much love & happiness to you & jane..denise
I have always wondered if you were painted by the well know Detroit artist Richard Jerzy? I have a portrait hanging in my home of a woman sitting in a chair fanning herself and everyone who se's it asks if it is you!
I'm a huge fan Lily. Have been all my life. I wanted to buy some of your DVDs but the link is not working to get to that page. Could you please look into fixing that. Thank you and thanks for all your many years of hard work and skill. I love you.
Thank you for being you and being so amazing!
Hey Lily!! Congratulations on the Lifetime Achievement Award!!
Lily, You have been an inspiration to me since the first time I saw you on Laugh-In in the 60's.. I was just a kid at the time. Signs of Intelligent Life , I saw no less than three times.. I have steadily followed your career and enjoyed all your brilliant, amazing performances. I love "Grace and Frankie"; I appreciate your quick witted humor and creative delivery of an another amazing funny, quirky, intelligent character.. Coming out was not easy for in the 70's and 80's but you served as a great role model for young women like me at a challenging stage in my life. Congratulations on your Screen Actors Guild Life Achievment Award honor!! No one is more deserving than you! Thanks to you and Jane, for continuously sharing your unique gifts: of intelligence and creativity as these have added a special positive, hopeful, humorous and joyful dimension to all the stages of my life!
