Reynolds is best known as one of MGM’s principal stars of the 1950s and ’60s in such films as the musicals “Singin’ in the Rain” and “The Unsinkable Molly Brown,” for which she received an Oscar nomination for Best Actress. She starred in her own TV show “The Debbie Reynolds Show,” for which she received a Golden Globe nomination, she was nominated for the Tony Award for the Broadway revival of “Irene,” and was also nominated for an Emmy Award for playing Grace’s mother Bobbi on “Will & Grace.”
All night, Reynolds’ co-stars mourned her loss on Twitter, including Debra Messing, Albert Brooks, Carl Reiner, and more. See some of them below.
Debbie Reynolds was one of the last of Hollywood Royalty. It breaks my heart that she is gone. I’d hoped that my grieving was done for 2016.

So heartsick. Debbie went to be with Carrie. It’s such a devastating 1,2 punch. She was my “mom” for years & I loved her dearly.A legend.

Debbie Reynolds, a legend and my movie mom. I can’t believe this happened one day after Carrie. My heart goes out to Billie.

How shocked we were to learn that Debbie Reynolds passed away just a day after her daughter Carrie. I loved & worked both of these icons.
