At this point in his multi-decade career, Morgan Freeman is at the level where he can do pretty much whatever he wants. Wear a dad cap to accept a lifetime achievement award at the SAG Awards? Sure, why not?

Immediately call out an audience member for not paying close enough attention, like a benevolently worn-out teacher on a Friday morning reminding everyone about weekend assignments? Why the hell not?

It was the schoolmarm-y call out that had people online laughing:

But the 80-year-old actor also took a moment during his speech to call out the gender-specific statue given as an award. "I'm gonna tell you what's wrong with that statue," the actor said. "It works from the back. From the front, it's gender-specific."

Freeman has been in at least 83 films during his career, playing God in many of them. A true icon.
