Morgan Freeman has been nominated for, or has won 29 more awards than movies he starred in!
Morgan Freeman is one of the most loved American actors of all times.
There is just something about him that makes everybody like and respect him. He has a very recognizable golden voice to go with all his charm.
Freeman only really made his big break into the movie industry at the age of fifty with the film ‘Street Smart’ and since then his rise to fame was steady and consistent.
He has starred in 76 films, a number that excludes narrating and voice overs. A clear indication of what a truly brilliant actor he is would be the fact that he was nominated for and/or has won 105 awards—that's 29 more awards than movies he's starred in!
Besides acting, Freeman is also very actively involved in charity work and co-founded the Grenada Relief Fund. He also actively participates in raising awareness of environmental issues.
In 2012 Mr Freeman ranked third on the Forbes’ ‘Most Trustworthy Celeb’ list with Tom Hanks and Carol Burnett first and second, respectively. He was listed 19th on the ‘50 Greatest Actors of All Time’ list.
There is still no end in sight for this brilliant actor and there are rumors that we will see Morgan Freeman in more than one movie in 2015. If previous statistics are anything to go by, he may be nominated for a reward or two for those as well!
