Morgan Freeman called out gender-specific trophies at the 2018 SAG Awards, and *mic drop*

Morgan Freeman was presented with a Life Achievement Award at the 24th annual SAG Awards this Sunday night, where the award-winning actor called out gender-specific trophies in award shows.

After sharing a hilarious exchange with Rita Moreno concerning his hat obstructing his face, Freeman proved his icon status in his acceptance speech and said:

“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.

Stay woke, Morgan. Stay woke.

Freeman’s speech was the textbook definition of a mic drop moment, and the internet took notice.


Oprah 2020? We’re also getting a Freeman 2020 vibe, TBH.
