Morgan Freeman has been at this acting thing for a while now (since the 70s) and when you can successfully play the role of God himself, a lifetime achievement award is only just around the corner.
According to sources, Morgan Freeman will be the 54th honoree to receive the Screen Actors Guild Lifetime Achievement award:
According to Variety SAG-AFTRA President Gabrielle Carteris tells the press:
“I am thrilled to announce Morgan Freeman as this year’s recipient of the SAG Life Achievement Award,” said SAG-AFTRA President Gabrielle Carteris. “Some actors spend their entire careers waiting for the perfect role. Morgan showed us that true perfection is what a performer brings to the part. He is innovative, fearless and completely unbound by expectations. As a chauffeur, convicted murderer, boxing gym attendant, pimp or president, Morgan fully realized every character, baring their souls and showcasing their humanity. It has been a privilege to see his genius at work.”
Congratulations Morgan Freeman! We’re preparing to be blown away by your speech on January 21, 2018. Until then, we will keep Lean On Me on repeat.
