Rita Moreno

and George Chakiris at the 34th Academy Awards on April 9, 1962.

Jackie Gleason in “The Hustler” and Judy Garland in “Judgment At Nuremberg” were heavily favored to win the awards for best supporting actor and actress. However, they were defeated by George Chakiris and Rita Moreno as part of the “West Side Story” sweep. The musical film won a total of ten Academy Awards including Best Picture.

Rita Moreno is the first Latina

actress to win an Academy Award. She is also one of a select group of performers to have won all four of the most prestigious show business awards, two Emmys, a Grammy, an Oscar, and a Tony.
