“Good evening, friends! Welcome to the 24th annual Screen Actors Guild Awards. There has never been a host for this award show before. Yep. First time. First person. First lady,” she remarked.

“I honestly never thought that I would grow up to be the first lady. But you know what? I kind of like it. I think my first initiative, as first lady will be cyberbullying, because I have yet to see any progress on that problem quite yet. I’m looking at you, Tony Hale. You’re a bully! Guys, he is savage on Twitter. I’m serious.”

She went on to address the political climate in Hollywood and beyond.

“This is a show for you guys and is to entice you to stick around. It’s true! Because it is a true privilege to experience and share the wide scope of humanity through storytelling. You know, the skating queen, the grieving mother, the ladybird, even the sea monster, everyone’s story deserves to be told, especially now. We are living in a watershed moment and as we march forward with active momentum and open ears, let’s make sure we are leading the charge with empathy and diligence, because fear and anger never win the race.”
