We're living in a watershed moment in time: Kristen Bell

Actress Kristen Bell, who hosted the 24th Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Awards, made a reference to the Time's Up movement when she made a plea for empathy and diligence.

Bell avoided the myriad sexual misconduct allegations facing Hollywood by name during her opening monologue, but she made an impassioned plea at the gala on Sunday night, reports variety.com.

"It's a true privilege to experience and share the wide scope of humanity through storytelling. Everyone's story deserves to be told, especially now. We are living in a watershed moment in time, 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," said Bell.

This year, the SAG Awards featured a roster of nearly all female presenters.
