MORGAN FREEMAN

MORGAN FREEMAN TRIBUTE

Whether a role requires an air of gravitas, a playful smile, twinkle of the eye, or a world-weary, yet insightful soul, Morgan Freeman’s ability to delve to the core of a character and infuse it with a quiet dignity has resulted in some of the most memorable cinematic characters committed to film. Academy Award winning actor Morgan Freeman is one of the most recognizable figures in American cinema. His works are among the most critically and commercially successful films of all time. He ranks 2nd among worldwide top-grossing actors of all time, with his films having earned over $4 billion in cumulative ticket sales.

After beginning his acting career on the off-Broadway stage productions of The Niggerlovers and the all African-American production of Hello Dolly, Freeman segued into television. Many people grew up watching him on the long-running Children’s Television Workshop classic The Electric Company (1971-1977), where he played the ironic Easy Reader among several recurring characters. Looking for his next challenge, he set his sights on both Broadway and the silver screen simultaneously and quickly began to fill his resume with memorable performances. In 1978 he won a Drama Desk Award for his role as Zeke in The Mighty Gents. He also received a Tony Nomination for Best Performance by a Featured Actor. His stage work continued to earn him accolades and awards, including Obie Awards in 1980, 1984 and 1987, and a second Drama Desk Nomination in 1987 for the role of Hoke Colburn, which he created for the Alfred Uhry play Driving Miss Daisy and reprised in the 1989 movie of the same name.

Freeman received an Academy Award nomination in 1987 for Best Supporting Actor for Street Smart by Jerry Schatzberg, in 1990 for Best Actor for his performance in Driving Miss Daisy by Bruce Beresford, in 1994 for Best Actor for The Shawshank Redemption by Frank Darabont and in 2010 for Best Actor for Invictus by Clint Eastwood. In 2000, he received the coveted Kennedy Center Honor for his distinguished acting, and was honoured with the Hollywood Actor Award from the Hollywood Film Festival. He won the 2005 Best Supporting Actor Academy Award for his role in Million Dollar Baby by Clint Eastwood.
