Only Rita Won All The Awards Competitively

In a new interview, Rita Moreno (pictured) talks about her career and being awarded the 2013 SAG Lifetime Achievement Award. She earned an Oscar in 1962 for her portrayal of Anita in “West Side Story,” won a Grammy in 1972 for her performance on “The Electric Company Album.” She won a Tony for her 1975 role as Puerto Rican bathhouse singer Googie Gomez in Broadway’s “The Ritz.” And she’s won two Emmy Awards. She is the only living person — Helen Hayes and Audrey Hepburn are the only dead people — to have won all four major awards in competitive performance categories. No Barbra or Liza or Whoopi. Only Rita. Got it?
