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.
