SAG Awards 2017: Kristen Bell throws shade at Melania Trump
The 2018 SAG Awards host,Kristen Bell subtly criticised the US First Lady for her failure in combating cyberbullying, which was her promise before occupying the White House.
She kick-started the ceremony by taking a jab at US First Lady, Melania Trump.
“There has never been a host for this awards show before. First time. First person. First lady. I honestly never thought 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,” CNN quoted Bell as saying.
Although Bell did not mention Mrs. Trump’s name, she was obviously making reference to the First Lady, who had said that combating cyberbullying would be her key focus during her time in the White House.
The big winner of the night was “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri” with trophies for best ensemble cast and best actress for Frances McDormand for her portrayal as a grieving mother.
Gary Oldman continued his winning streak, taking home the Lead Actor award, for his role in “Darkest Hour” in which he portrayed Winston Churchill.
