One pretty good reason to tune into a livestream of the Screen Actors Guild Awards this Sunday: “The Good Place” actress Kristen Bell is the ceremony’s first-ever host.
“This has been a year in which assumptions have been challenged, stereotypes have been shattered and precedents have been broken,” Kathy Connell, the show’s executive producer, said in a statement. “We decided to capture the cultural mood by casting aside one of our own traditions.”
Bell is set to lead the evening as some of the past year’s best movie and television productions go head-to-head for top motion picture, drama series, comedy and more. “The Big Sick,” “Lady Bird,” “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri” and other Oscar hopefuls are up for outstanding performance by a cast in a motion picture.
While Bell’s NBC comedy didn’t receive any nods, series including “Orange is the New Black,” “This Is Us,” “Big Little Lies” “The Crown,” “Handmaid’s Tale” and “Game of Thrones” dominate the list.
