Over the course of the series' five seasons, Lipton earned four Emmy nominations and a 1971 Golden Globe nomination.

Lipton's other credits include Norma Jennings in Twin Peaks from 1989-1991, a role she reprised in the 2017 revival of the popular series. Lipton also starred in Angel Falls, Alias, Rules of Engagement, and Crash, among several others.

After marrying Quincy Jones in 1974, the actress had taken a step back from acting in order to raise their daughters, though she returned to the career following their divorce in 1989.
