Rita Moreno has been breaking down doors since we met her. She has graced the big screen, small screen and more Broadway theater stages than we could begin to try to count. Her tenacity, spunk and ability to channel true human emotion are unparalleled. So, it is no shock to us that she has been given a distinction so worthy and befitting of her talent.

Said Ms. Moreno,

“So proud to be the first Latino recipient.”

Said Jeffrey P. Jones, executive director of Peabody.

“Rita Moreno is a unique talent who has not only broken barriers but whose career continues to thrive six-plus decades after her acting debut,” We are delighted to celebrate her many contributions to entertainment and media, as well as her passion for children’s programming and important social issues.”
