Billed as "Britain's youngest prima donna", she rose to prominence starring in Broadway musicals such as ''My Fair Lady'' (1956) playing Eliza Doolittle and ''Camelot'' (1960) playing Queen Guinevere. In 1957, Andrews starred in the premiere of Rodgers and Hammerstein's written-for-television musical ''Cinderella'', a live, network broadcast seen by over 100 million viewers. Andrews made her feature film debut in ''Mary Poppins'' (1964) and won the Academy Award for Best Actress for her performance in the title role. She starred in ''The Sound of Music'' (1965), playing Maria von Trapp and won the Golden Globe Award for Best Actress – Motion Picture Comedy or Musical.

After 1986, her workload decreased, appearing in two films in 1991 and not again until 2000. Since the turn of the new millennium, however, her career has had a revival, with central roles in the ''Shrek'' series as Queen Lillian, in ''The Princess Diaries'' and its sequel as Queen Clarisse Renaldi and in the ''Despicable Me'' series as Gru's mother Marlena. She has also worked hosting performance shows such as ''Great Performances'' and narrating documentaries such as the 2004 Emmy-winning series ''Broadway: The American Musical''.

From 2004 to 2018, she lent her voice to the ''Shrek'' animated films, ''Despicable Me'' (2010) and ''Aquaman'' (2018).

Andrews has won an Academy Award, a BAFTA, five Golden Globes, three Grammys, two Emmys, the AFI Life Achievement Award, the Screen Actors Guild Life Achievement Award, the Kennedy Center Honors Award, and the Disney Legends Award.
