Every Latinx star deserves the utmost respect in Hollywood, but if there's one in particular who should never be forgotten, it's Rita Moreno. The 86-year-old Puerto Rican has more accomplishments under her belt than most people in the industry, and yet, she still has to work to get respect put on her name.
Moreno attended Sunday night's Golden Globe awards, which led to a huge Twitter mistake by the New York Times.
To recap Moreno's iconic (and still ongoing) career, she got her start as a teen on Broadway and doing Spanish voiceovers for movies.
Ever since starting out, the actress has been outspoken about being cast as "stereotypical Latina" characters onscreen.
In 1961, her iconic role in "West Side Story" landed her an Oscar for Best Supporting Actress.
She's one of 12 people on the planet who can brag about being an EGOT recipient.
Aside from her Oscar win, Moreno won two consecutive Emmys for her guest role on "The Muppet Show" in 1977, a Grammy for Best Recording for Children in 1972, and a Tony for her role in "The Ritz" in 1976.
Not to mention, she's a living Puerto Rican legend and a role model for the entire Latinx community.
She's currently starring in Netflix's comedy reboot of "One Day at a Time."
