Mary Tyler Moore had Dick Van Dyke a little nervous [Video]

 

For Dick Van Dyke, who presented a lifetime achievement award to Mary Tyler Moore on Sunday night, one compliment stands out among his decades of accolades.

"[M]y idol, Stan Laurel, said that he would like me to play him in his life story, and that was the biggest kick I ever had," Van Dyke said Sunday at the Screen Actors Guild Awards, where he planned to "ad lib a lot" in presenting Moore's award.

Turns out getting that presenter gig was more nerve-racking than he might've imagined.

"I didn't realize that the person gets to pick the presenter, and I said, 'Well, she has to pick me.' But," he noted with a smile, "she took a couple of weeks, and it had me chewing my nails."
