When she receives this most prestigious award she will have to give a one minute speech. That isn’t a lot of time for anyone to say their appreciations to all that helped her get this far in her celebrity career. She told Parade the following statement. It is funny and true too. She said; “I have to prepare a one-minute speech, which is hilarious.” Then continues on to say; “I’m Puerto Rican - I can’t even say hello in one minute!”

Congratulations Rita Moreno on all of your accomplishments!
