Rita Moreno received the Life Achievement Award at the 20th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards on Saturday, Jan. 18.
If you didn’t know, Moreno is only one of eleven EGOTs — she’s received an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony. She won an Oscar as Anita in “West Side Story,” Emmys for “The Muppet Show” and “The Rockford Files,” a Tony for “The Ritz,” and a Grammy for best recording on “The Electric Company.”
There are only 11 EGOTs. And as far as we know, she’s the only EGOT to have sung with Animal.
Here’s some clips from some of those award-winning performances, because we love Rita Moreno, and you should too.
We have to start with “West Side Story” and “America.” Work that dress, Rita. There is nothing better:
