SAG Awards to Honor Rita Moreno with Lifetime Achievement Award

Rita Moreno will receive the SAG Life Achievement Award for career achievement and humanitarian accomplishment at this year’s Screen Actor’s Guild Awards, the association announced today.

The awards, which SAG-AFTRA deems its “highest tribute,” will be presented to Moreno during the awards ceremony, which will be simulcast live on TNT and TBS on Saturday, Jan. 18, 2014.

In naming Moreno the 50th recipient of the award, SAG-AFTRA co-president Ken Howard said, “She is an extraordinarily versatile, talented and generous actor whose career is notable for its courageous choices and for the breadth, depth and quality of her many demanding and commanding roles. She is a magnificent actor, and I am honored to join all SAG-AFTRA members in recognizing the incomparable Rita Moreno.”

Moreno is one of only a few performers (and the only Hispanic) to have an Emmy, a Grammy, an Oscar and a Tony.
