Morgan Freeman Set to Receive SAG Lifetime Achievement Award

Morgan Freeman is about to receive a huge honor!

The 80-year-old Academy Award winning actor is set to be presented with the SAG Life Achievement award for career achievement and humanitarian accomplishment.

“I am thrilled to announce Morgan Freeman as this year’s recipient of the SAG Life Achievement Award,” SAG-AFTRA President Gabrielle Carteris said in a statement.

She added, “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.”

Morgan will receive the award during the Screen Actors Guild Awards on January 21st.

Congratulations Morgan!
