Rita Moreno

Rita Moreno(1931 - )

Rita Moreno has broken new ground for Latinos in the field of entertainment throughout her career. Moreno began her career in show business at early age. She appeared on Broadway and in her first film role in her early teens, and left school around the same time. Rita Moreno is best known as Anita in West Side Story in 1961, a role that earned her an Oscar for Best Supporting Actress, making her the first Latina actress to win the honor. She is one of only 11 people to have received the four major entertainment honors—Emmy, Oscar, Tony and Grammy awards. Rita Moreno also appeared on the children's shows Sesame Street and The Electric Company.
