Morgan Freeman Criticizing Male SAG Statuettes Was the Call Out Heard Around the Internet

When Morgan Freeman took the stage in a baseball cap to accept the Lifetime Achievement Award at the 24th annual Screen Actors Guild Awards, he had some pointed feedback about the statuette.

“Oh and one more thing. I wasn’t going to do this,” Freeman said as he was wrapping up. “I’m going to tell you what’s wrong with this statue. It works from the back…from the front, it’s gender-specific. “Maybe I started something,” he finished, with his signature wry smile.

The green statuette called “The Actor” depicts – in broad strokes – the figure of a nude male holding the comedy and tragedy masks. It’s created at the American Fine Arts Foundry in Burbank, California.
