Rita Moreno To Receive The 2014 SAG Life Achievement Award



Academy Award winning actress Rita Moreno (Best Supporting Actress – West Side Story; 1961) is being honored with SAG-AFTRA’s highest honor, the SAG Life Achievement Award for Career Achievement and Humanitarian Accomplishment. This tribute will take place at the 20th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards on January 18, 2014.

Moreno is one of 11 artists to have ever won the coveted EGOT (Emmy, Grammy, Tony, and Oscar). It’s been a big year for the Puerto Rico born actress, as Moreno’s autobiography, Rita Moreno: A Memoir, published earlier this year. My personal favorite moment for Rita Moreno was her performance of “America” in West Side Story. Do you have another you’d like to share? We’d love to hear it.

Lover of all things film and Oscar. Fantasy sports’ equivalent of George Steinbrenner. Your very own Han Solo, making friends all over the movie-loving galaxy in spite of himself. When he’s not ranking just about everything or dominating boardgames, Mark is breaking down the Oscar race 24/7 with Rain Man-like stats and knowledge. In his downtime, you can find him commiserating with other Northeast Ohio sports fans because a hero isn’t complete without a little heartbreak. If Game of Thrones, Lost, Breaking Bad, Mad Men, and Survivor are your style, then congratulations, you have something in common with this inglourious basterd.

Well, I think West Side Story was her best and her apex. But I saw her on Broadway in The Ritz and she was great in that. She repeated the role in the film and received a BAFTA and Golden Globe nominations.
I also worked with her on a psa commercial and she was wonderful to work with.
