From offering quality advice to being a shoulder to cry on, there's no shortage of inspirational mamas in film and television. Join Wonderwall.com as we round up and rank our favorite TV and movie moms! Do you agree with our list? First up at No. 15 is not a regular mom but a cool mom! In 2004's "Mean Girls," Amy Poehler brought Mrs. George — the well-meaning, slightly clueless but also hilarious mother of evil-in-human-form Regina George — to life. Whether she's offering the ladies drinks or asking for the hot gossip, Mrs. George goes down as one of our favorite silver screen moms of all time! Keep reading to see who else made the cut!
14. June Cleaver on "Leave It To Beaver"
Next up? The quintessential '50s mom, "Leave It to Beaver" matriarch June Cleaver, played by Barbara Billingsley! A lover of needlepoint and cake decorating, June served as the archetypal suburban mom to sons Wally and Theodore, aka "Beaver," and she could seemingly do it all. Add in the fact that she took care of her kids' friends as if they were her own, and you have one of the most hospitable, put-together moms in TV history!
13. Phyllis Nefler in "Troop Beverly Hills"
Beverly Hills socialite Phyllis Nefler from "Troop Beverly Hills" takes spot No. 13! As the newest den mother of her daughter's Wilderness Girls troop, Phyllis goes from self-absorbed shopaholic to fierce, doting mom, a woman set on getting her girls recognized by the regional council. Shelley Long brought the lovable character to life.
12. Maria in "The Sound of Music"
Okay, so technically, Fraulein Maria wasn't their mom, but she was a pretty good substitute for the Von Trapp children! Played flawlessly by Julie Andrews, Maria in "The Sound of Music" takes on the role of governess to seven unruly kids determined to drive her away like they've done to the caretakers before her. But Maria is just too charming, introducing them to music and winning over their hearts — and their father's — by the end of the film.
11. Beverly Goldberg in "The Goldbergs"
Who doesn't love Beverly Goldberg?! The hilariously smothering, overprotective mama bear, played by Wendi McLendon-Covey on the ABC sitcom "The Goldbergs," is known for her big hair, loud sweaters and lack of boundaries when it comes to her three children. There is certainly no shame in Beverly's mom game!
10. Clair Huxtable on "The Cosby Show"
We're pretty sure everyone in the '80s wished Clair Huxtable was their mom. Phylicia Rashad brought the matriarch of "The Cosby Show" to life, showing that it was possible to be a successful lawyer and fabulous mother of five while still being exceptionally fashionable.
9. Maria Portokalos in "My Big Fat Greek Wedding"
The only overbearing Greek mother on the list, Lainie Kazan's Maria Portokalos from "My Big Fat Greek Wedding" comes in at No. 9. Despite sometimes having different cultural beliefs, Maria always supported daughter Toula's decisions, even when it came to finding love with someone outside of their Greek culture.
8. Sophia Petrillo on "The Golden Girls"
Next up is the oldest mama on the list — Estelle Getty's Sophia Petrillo on "The Golden Girls." As Dorothy's mom, Sicily-born and Brooklyn-accented Sophia brought just the right amount of sass, laughs and tough love to the Miami home where she, her daughter and widows Rose and Blanche are living out their retirement.
7. Rosemary Penderghast in "Easy A"
Although the next mom on the list didn't steal too much screen time, her hilarious lines and sweet family left a major impression. Patricia Clarkson played loving, silly mom Rosemary Penderghast to Emma Stone's daughter Olive in 2010's "Easy A." Along with dad Dill (played by Stanley Tucci), the parents often brought the comic relief while fiercely supporting daughter Olive's high school plight.
6. Tami Taylor on "Friday Night Lights"
As the iconic Tami Taylor on "Friday Night Lights," Connie Britton played school counselor and wife to the high school head football coach in Dillon, Texas. But her most important role? Mom! She maintained a healthy relationship — though sometimes full of ups and downs — with teen daughter Julie, and even managed to excel at being a mom later in life to daughter Gracie Belle!
5. Jane Adler in "It's Complicated"
Turning down a romantic relationship for the sake of her kids? That's the next mom on our list, Jane Adler, for ya! Meryl Streep's "It's Complicated" character not only owned a successful bakery and the kitchen of our Nancy Meyers dreams, but was also a divorced mom of three adult kids who always came first in her life. Though Steve Martin and Alec Baldwin's characters tried to woo her, Jane opted to go it alone.
4. Claire Dunphy on "Modern Family"
Former stay-at-home, type-A, perfectionist mom Claire Dunphy takes spot No. 4. Played by the hilarious Julie Bowen, Claire manages to wrangle her good-hearted, doofy husband Phil while also raising three vastly different children. We can't lie — lovable, organized Claire is the main reason we tune in to ABC's "Modern Family" on Wednesday nights!
3. Leigh Anne Tuohy in "The Blind Side"
Sandra Bullock starred as real-life wonder mom Leigh Anne Tuohy in 2009's "The Blind Side" — and she's our No. 3 pick! Leigh Anne is already a busy mother to two kids, but when she learns former foster child Michael Oher is in need, she takes him in and loves him like one of her own. Eventually the Tuohy family adopts Michael, and it's Leigh Anne who helps guide his football career until he reaches the collegiate level.
2. Carol Brady on "The Brady Bunch"
The runner-up for our favorite movie or TV mother is none other than America's favorite '70s mom — Mrs. Brady! Carol Brady (played by the late Florence Henderson) successfully combined her three daughters with new husband Mike's three sons to create a happy, love-filled, blended family well before step-kids and step-parents were prevalent in pop culture. An additional shout-out to housekeeper Alice, who also helped run this bunch's household!
1. Lorelai Gilmore on "Gilmore Girls"
What's better than a mom who doubles as a BFF?! Lauren Graham's Lorelai Gilmore on "Gilmore Girls" earns the top spot on our list of favorite moms because her adorable relationship with daughter Rory kept us tuning in for seven seasons (and one Netflix reboot)!
