Rita Moreno and Morgan Freeman at the 2018 SAG Awards


Remezcla’s sense of humor comes in handy these days. Their article’s full title is “Rita Moreno Went Full Abuelita on Morgan Freeman at the SAG Awards.” Other media source, like Vanity Fair, underlined the charm of both acting greats as they teased one another at the 2018 Screen Actors Guild Awards. Here are Remezcla’s comments—don’t forget to see their selection of videos and photos that document their decades-long friendship:

[. . .] When the legendary Rita Moreno stepped out on the stage at the Screen Actors Guild Award on Sunday night, she received a standing ovation. And though she expressed gratitude after the outpouring of support from her peers (“Oh my God. That’s a lot of love”), Moreno came to talk about her long-time friend, Morgan Freemen, the night’s life achievement award honoree. Throughout her introduction and his speech, the two proved they are friendship goals and the best part of the show.

When Morgan tried to begin addressing the audience, Rita interrupted by going full abuelita on him. “Morgan, lift up your hat! Lift it up!” she said. “There we go. Now they can see you.” [. . .]
