Kristen Bell just delivered a strong opening monologue as the first ever host of the SAG Awards on Sunday.

Fronting a deliberately all-female presenter bill for the 2018 ceremony, The Good Place star presented a strong opening speech — and with the Time’s Up and #MeToo movements against systemic sexual abuse in Hollywood gaining immense traction, Bell’s monologue was always going to include a nod.

Mid-way through Bell’s monologue, she really hit the Time’s Up button on the head.
