When Morgan came on the scene to accept the award, he made a cute joke during his winner’s speech. He made a hilarious comment on the SAG statue:

I wasn't gonna do this, but I'm gonna tell you what's wrong with this statue. It works from the back. From the front, it's gender specific.

Well, Freeman is well-known for his exceptional sense of humor, and we love him for that.
