SAG Awards 2018: Morgan Freeman Calls Out Guest For Talking During Speech, As ‘Three Billboards’ Dominates Winners List

'Hey, I'm talking to you'.

Morgan Freeman collected the Lifetime Achievement award at Sunday night’s Screen Actors Guild Awards, and wasn’t going to allow anyone to spoil his moment in the spotlight.

After taking to the stage to collect his gong, the 80-year-old actor called out a guest  for chatting as he made his acceptance speech.

The ‘Shawshank Redemption’ star told the unidentified guest:Hey... I’m talking to you.”

Adding: “Yeah, hey... okay, well you just stand out to me. That’s all.”

It’s not clear if the audience member had responded or apologised, before Morgan continued his speech where he also addressed issues of gender inequality.

Discussing the award statue, he said: “I wasn’t going to do this; I’m going to tell you what’s wrong with this statue. It works from the back, but from the front, it’s gender specific. Maybe I started something.”
