With more than five decades of illustrious career, veteran actor Morgan Freeman has been bestowed with the biggest honour in the entertainment industry. The 80-year-old actor, who was honoured with the Screen Actors Guild’s Life Achievement Award, acknowledged how momentous this achievement was for him.

In his acceptance speech, he said, “These moments in life usually call for an entire litany of thank yous. I can’t do that because I don’t know all of your names, so I won’t try. This is beyond an honour. This is a place in history. I want to say thanks to SAGs for this enormous honour”.

After a few jokes with award presenter Rita Moreno, and the thank mentions, Morgan talked about few adjustments that could be made to the SAG statue in the future years.

“I wasn’t gonna do this, but I’m gonna tell you what’s wrong with this statue. It works from the back. From the front, it’s gender-specific. Maybe I started something”, shared Freeman.

Rita was given this award five years ago by Freeman, called the actor a “national treasure”.

She said, “Morgan is way more than just an actor, narrator, producer, humanitarian. This man is a national treasure. Morgan likes to say that if you become a star, people are going to go to see you. And if you remain an actor, they’re going to go see the story you are in”.

Freeman became popular in the 1970s with a part of children’s TV show The Electric Company and in the following decades is known to be one of the highest box office stars of all time; he has collected in 4.316 billion dollars total box office gross, an average of 74.4 million dollars per film.

Morgan Freeman won an Oscar in 2005 for his role in Million Dollar Baby (2004), and he has received Oscar nominations for his performances in Street Smart (1987), Driving Miss Daisy (1989), The Shawshank Redemption (1994) and Invictus (2009).
