Rita Moreno is already one of 15 EGOT award winners (Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, Tony), says Deadline, and on May 18th she will add a Peabody award to her arsenal, making her the first Latina to become a PEGOT.

Moreno has had a very successful multi-decade career from the movie ‘West Side Story’ to Netflix’s ‘One Day At A Time’, says NBC News, but she is also being given a Peabody award because of her dedication to social issues and kid’s shows.


thisistheBronX spent a few minutes with Rita Moreno, one of Hollywood’s iconic stars, before the Bronx Children’s Museum’s Gala, 2019. Fellow honoree Bobby Sanabria joined the conversation.

thisistheBronX publisher Gary Axelbank spoke with Moreno at the 2019 Bronx Children’s Museum Gala, where she talked about arriving in the Bronx from Puerto Rico and why youngsters deserve a museum to embrace creativity.

The other PEGOT winners are director Mike Nichols and singer Barbra Streisand.
