Morgan Freeman In A Casket Featured During Golden Globe Awards

During the 2012 Golden Globe Awards Morgan Freeman was presented with the Cecil B. DeMille aware for career achievement.

As is standard practice the Hollywood Foreign Press Association put together some of the actors most memorable clips including The Shawshank Redemption, Invictus and Driving Miss Daisy. However it may not have been the “classics” he starred in that earned him the biggest notice of the night.

Near the end of the Morgan Freeman presentation he was shown dressed as a vampire, sopaing himself down inside a casket for the 1974 TV series The Electric Company.

In case you missed this odd, silly bit here it is:

Obviously the Hollywood Foreign Press Association has plenty of respect for Morgan Freeman or they wouldn’t have given him the award, it’s just nice to know that they can also have a sense of humor about their own show. After all the Golden Globes are the laid back Academy Awards.
