LOS ANGELES (AP) - Rita Moreno did a little of everything in accepting the lifetime achievement award from the Screen Actors Guild. She sang, she danced, she dropped the F-bomb.

The 82-year-old entertainer was clearly delighted with being singled out at the SAG Awards on Saturday night. The crowd of actors at the Shrine Auditorium gave her a standing ovation, with Julia Roberts whooping it up as Moreno’s giddy acceptance speech came to a close.

“I am so (expletive) thrilled,” she crowed after being introduced by old friend Morgan Freeman.

Moreno is one of Hollywood’s rare EGOT winners - owner of Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony awards. Her Oscar came in 1962 for her iconic portrayal of saucy Anita in “West Side Story.”
